Grammy award winning artist and superstar Drake has lately publicized the collaborations for his new album “Views“ before the release as he posted some images of some musicians and producers on his Instagram page while indorsing the publication of his 4th studio album titled “Views” and while doing this he mentioned Wizkid as one of the collaborators. The fact here is that Drake acknowledged our very own Nigerian superstar and singer–Wizkid.
Starboy Wizkid was featured on one of the many tracks on the album titled “One Dance” which also features Uk superstar Kyla, a song which was also co-produced by Wizkid alongside “40”, based on the involvement of Wizkid oh this chat topper single “One Dance“, Drake considered to use Wizkid’s photo as one of the photos to publicize his album which was eventually released two days ago, as a result further building up Wizkid’s local position as an artiste back home. Below is a screenshot copy of the album’s promoters list with Wizkid restfully acquiring a spot.
Drake has finally come to the understanding that if his album must perform remarkably well in Nigeria, Wizkid is the appropriate channel to go through, this is a definitely a huge rise and more appreciation for the Afrobeat music, a lead and a feature that has never been seen from any other musician from the continent, even his major competitor in the industry- Davido hasn’t been anywhere close to accomplishing this. The P.R. Cover of the Album DISC even has Wizkid’s picture with a “mini” Drake (you’ll have to look very closely to see him).P.R. Cover of the Album DISC
Obviously Drake’s acknowledgement of Wizkid can be established on the fact that Wizkid contributed massively towards the progress and promotion of ‘One Dance’ by facilitating the enormous spread in Nigeria, thus hyping his local status back home.
The album reportedly traded over 600,000 copies on the world pupular digital music sale platform iTunes in its first 24 hours of release, the collaboration with the Nigerian Afrobeats star Wizkid and sampling Kyla’s “Do You Mind” (a smash on Britain’s funky dance music scene in the late 2000s), “One Dance” is an international dance-floor song, one of Drake’s breeziest and most available songs, and also one of his savviest. But “One Dance,” gentle as it is, is also about fear. “Streets not safe/but I never run away,” he sings, in a dulcet voice.
With perfect vocal fits and smooth production, Views is Drake’s journey through the town that made him. A thorough compare to the spontaneous skill of recent mixtapes, he taunts rivals with speaker–rattling anthems (“Hype,” “Still Here”), reexamines his modest early development (“Weston Road Flows”), and revives the seductive vibes between him and Rihanna (“Too Good”). Those extremes—the Caribbean warmth of “One Dance” and the artistic expression of pain of “Fire & Desire,” the constant exposure and unapologetic self-confidence—make Views a fascinating conquest lap from Toronto’s game-changing MC.
