Say what you want to say but this is the better sounding Rema, and not the one you heard on Fire Tonight. Because, this song, plus the others she has done in this vein, like Atuuse and Oli Wange, do bring out the best out of this girl, her unique beauty, grace, elegance as a diva, and her pleasantness of voice, all of it. Songs like Fire Tonight, even though a dance-floor hit song with wide appeal, do not do justice to her true qualities, no.
On Kaliba, her voice is in its true element, in its full range, a seamless soprano worth every second of your time while the song plays, which she then interjects with layers of charming tenor on the ad-libs. The guitar too, is in a charming world of its own, matching her all the way. Rema is simply a joy to listen to, a joy you will not enjoy to the same magnitude when she is running out of control on songs like Fire Tonight.
She is singing to the lone, lonely, broken heart, one that has sought and ceaselessly fought for love, to no avail. It is to such a heart that she is finally pouring her affection, in such a show of romantic reassurance. Again, Rema rides her tide, standing tall and offering us a fitting love anthem for the broken hearted.
