Blimes – Woke Up In Paris ( Feat. Reverie )
Back in May of 2012, we met up with a fun group of artists at a Downtown LA rooftop to shoot our first all female cypher session. That evening was our first time meeting all the ladies, including Blimes ( formally Oh Blimey ) and Reverie; this was also the first time these two MCs met. We proceeded to shoot the session, which would later become one of our earliest viral releases, and an international fan favorite.
After this meeting, Blimes and Reverie continued on their individual paths, blossoming over the years into the amazing artists we see today. From multiple tours in Europe, launching their own labels and clothing lines, they continue to explore and push boundaries in their respective careers. Over the years their paths have crossed in various ways, except in a song.
Today, almost 7 years after these two artists met each other at an LA rooftop, they release ‘Woke Up In Paris’, their first song and video collaboration.
Blimes’ ‘Woke Up In Paris’, featuring Reverie and Chase Moore on the production, is the latest single off her upcoming album ‘CASTLES’ which is set for release March 22nd.
The music video, as the title hints, was shot in Paris ( France ) by Enkrypt LA, and directed by Reverie. The video features fun scenes of Blimes and Reverie in front of the Eiffel Tower and on stage performing at one of their shows. A long way from where it all started.
Witnessing the beginning of their friendship, and how far they’ve come along in their careers, makes watching ‘Woke Up In Paris’ a great experience.
