What better way to celebrate a multi-album worldwide deal with a new label, than release a new single? Nigerian singer/songwriter and all round Wizkid, has finally released his long awaited new collaboration with Drake on the new single ‘Come Closer’.
After their breakout collaboration on the ‘Oujelegba’ remix with Drake and Skepta, Wizkid’s undeniable connection brought the two artists together again, taking a smash step forward with ‘One Dance’.
Previously heard on OVO Sound radio back in February ‘Come Closer’ f.k.a ‘Hush up the Silence’, is written by Wizkid and Drake and will be featured on Wizkid’s third album ‘Sounds From the Other Side’. Produced by Sarz, also a part of Wizkid’s Starboy family, both artists finesse the dancehall-afrobeat sounds with an ease that leaves you bussing a whine or two in front of the mirror.
Hinting at a video release at the end of April directed by Daps (Migos), ‘Come Closer’ which follows ‘Sweet Love, is a personification of Wizkid’s love for his African heritage and influences and is the start of a summer smash.
