Wizkid is gearing up for his debut project under Sony Music and his third studio album however, in the background, conversations on the need to alter sounds in a bid for international acclaim have come to the forefront. Last week, Wizkid and Davido threw subliminal messages across their various social media pages touching on the topic and whose sound is currently dominating. The latest Wizkid release, Naughty Ride is produced by Major Lazer and touches directly on the debate in the past week as it suggests that Wizkid’s Sounds From The Other Side shall be dominated by Dancehall tracks with a minority of tracks that see him deliver what most will consider true Afrobeat music.

Naughty Ride continues the relationship between Wizkid and Major Lazer and joins tracks like Boom and My Love which have united them.
