Already a megastar back home, WizKid brings the Afrobeat party overseas with his worldwide release Sounds From the Other Side, which arrives today. The Nigerian singer-songwriter, who topped the U.S. charts with Drake’s 2016 hit “One Dance,” unleashes a project full of feel-good tunes that will have you dancing all summer long.
In addition to the Drake-assisted single “Come Closer,” the 11 tracks are packed with appearances from Chris Brown (“African Bad Gyal”), Major Lazer (“Naughty Ride”), Ty Dolla $ign, and Trey Songz, plus production from DJ Mustard, Diplo, Sarz, Picard Brothers, and Spellz.
“The aim is not really to cross over,” WizKid recently told The Net. “I just want to make good music for the world. It’s really not in my mind to cross over to America. I have my own fan base, which is Africa. And I just want to keep feeding that fan base and hope it grows.”
