Rêve x ReveUpdate
‘Fan Account of the Month’ (#FAOTM) is a fan-appreciation series on UMUSIC!
At UMUSIC, we acknowledge and value the efforts of fans from around the world. The passion, dedication and love fans have for their favourite artists is something the team at UMUSIC has admired for a long time. For this reason, UMUSIC has decided to feature a fan account every month. This will give our UMUSIC community the opportunity to learn about different fandoms, their hardworking members and more about the artists!
Fan account: A social media account created by a fan dedicated to a particular piece of pop culture. This series will focus on fan accounts dedicated to artists.
Update account: A fan-run social media source for fan accounts. An update account serves as the main source of updates on a specific artist. An update account will gather all media, promotional items, and information on an artist and share the information with other fans. Think of update accounts as a constantly updated Wikipedia for fans. This series will also focus on update accounts, which are simply larger fan accounts.
June’s fan account of the month features the Rêve fan page, @ReveUpdate, that has been updating fans on everything Rêve since December 2021. The account is run by Mariam and Stephanie, based out of Ontario, Canada, as well as Jason out of California.
“I’ve been a fan ever since I saw an ad on YouTube for ‘Still Dancing,’ then i got Jason and Stephanie hooked.”Mariam
The admins behind ReveUpdate post about all of Rêve’s major achievements, chart updates, and whenever she releases new music, they tweet and share it with major fandoms to help promote the release. Fun fact: it’s mainly fans of Selena Gomez that help support!
The team at UMUSIC interviewed the ReveUpdate team about their love for Rêve, their favourite moments and much more. Below is a collection of their answers…
1. Why are you a fan of Rêve?
We love her music. For me, Mariam, she’s a breath of fresh air in Canada because we haven’t had a pop star like her for a while!
2. What makes Rêve so unique?
Not only does she make good pop music , she’s also a Canadian artist and we’ve been here since the start, so we feel connected with her in a sense. We remember when we heard “CTRL + ALT + DEL” upon release and asked her if she could send it to radio because we knew it could be a hit.
3. What about Rêve resonates with you?
She’s a pop star who doesn’t give up. She went from being shut down by major labels at 18 to now topping the charts with two back-to-back top 10 radio hit singles. She’s a true inspiration, as well as the fact that she’s bringing a pop sound to Canada that any other Canadian artist hasn’t done before.
4. How does it feel to be the first Rêve fan account?
It feels incredible and rewarding in a sense. She has the nicest team and she herself is super sweet. We feel super proud every day seeing her do so well!
5. What was the first song you heard?
6. Are there any lyrics of hers that have had an impact on you?
Well, I think a personal favourite of all of ours is “SKIN 2 SKIN.” The song feels so freeing and it basically just says to embrace yourself and your sexuality. As a women, it’s usually seen as shameful in this world, but she totally flips the script.
7. What Rêve music video stands out the most to you and why?
The “Tongue” music video looks incredible, the choreography, the looks, the outfits, the visuals – everything just looks next level!
8. How would you describe her current era?
It’s Definitely her breakout era. She had her breakout hit, “CTRL + ALT + DEL” which is the lead single to the upcoming album, and she also had her second hit “Headphones.” I feel as though this era is kind of experimental. I remember in radio interviews, Rêve said she was making an EP and then a couple of months later when “CTRL + ALT + DEL” was climbing the charts, she has the confidence to make it an album. She also increased her promotion and music videos, so now you see her being promoted more on radio, TV, Spotify – and the “Tongue” music video is top tier.
9. What do you think is next?
Her debut studio album – she’s mentioned it in many interviews and the fans are super exited!
10. Who would you like to see Rêve collaborate with in the future?
A dream collab would be Dua Lipa or Angéle. Dua makes such good pop music just like Rêve does, and Angéle could be a great pop collab if Rêve ever wanted to do a French song.
11. What would you say to Rêve if you got to meet her in person?
We would say thank you for making such good, fun pop music in a time where everything seemed so sad and the world was at its lowest. Also, we would say how proud we are of how far she’s come and how much of an inspiration she is to us.
12. Finally, how do you recommend Rêve fans support her in the future?
Continue streaming her music, request her on local radio stations, buy tickets to her upcoming fall 2022 tour in Canada, and of course buy “Tongue” on iTunes and stream it on Spotify and Apple Music!!!!
From all of us at UMUSIC, we would like to thank Mariam, Stephanie and Jason of ReveUpdate. We applaud you and all Rêve stans for your time, effort and dedication to supporting her work!
