In the middle of 2018 with just about two hit singles to lean on, fans of the self proclaimed Starboy; Wizkid had readied their themselves for a music scarce for the Afrobeat giant whose nonchalance for discography expansion was apparent in the performance and production aspect of artistry.
This month, he aligns with award winning American producer; Metro Boomin whose top notch production skills has acted as the foundation of one of the more dominant sub genres of the Hip Hop scene. Along with Swae Lee, Offset and J Balvin, he makes the most of Metro Boomin’s signature Atlanta styled Production.
While his presence on Borrowed Love with Swae Lee counts for something as his reggae inflected delivery makes the track unforgettable, the alliance and synergy he forms with J Balvin and Offset on Only You places it on the list of top 5 features of the 13 track album titled Not All Heroes Wear Capes; an allusion to Metro Boomin’s under-appreciated artistry and the elite category of artistes listed as features on the album.
For a year that began with barely any hit from Wizkid, 2017 will go down as an unforgettable year in his life and the lives of everyone involved in his growth.
