Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Rema's song Calm Down describe the singer's romantic attraction and desire for a girl who captures his attention at a party. The song starts with Rema telling the girl to calm down even though her body has put his heart on lockdown. This simply means that he is smitten by her beauty and cannot think of anything else. He goes ahead to describe her as sweet like Fanta, which is a nod to her being deliciously attractive. Rema then confesses his love for her and asks that she doesn't refuse him. He assures her that he is not just trying to show off (yanga) or impress her, and he doesn't want a negative answer from her.


He later finds a way to talk to her, which leads to him admiring her beauty and showing interest in her. Though she seems hesitant due to some insecurities, Rema is still persistent, and he later reaches out to her to express his intense feelings. He further asks her not to break his heart because he wouldn't be able to love again. In summary, the song is about a guy who has met a girl that he is immensely attracted to and he is willing to go any length to be with her.
