*Drake’s ‘One Dance’ shines the light on Wizzy’s International presence
Wizkid has become the first Nigerian artist to emerge on Billboard’s Twitter Last 24 hours chart courtesy of his feature in Drake’s ‘One Dance’ track.

Two days ago, Drake dropped two singles, ‘Pop Style’ ft Kanye West and Jay Z, and ‘One Dance’ ft Wizkid and Kyla. On ‘One Dance’, he gets assists from Wizkid, who he worked with last year, and Kyla, sampling the Crazy Cousinz remix of her song, ‘Do You Mind’.

This raises the bar a lot higher for the star pop singer helping to improve his brand visibility.

The tune ‘One Dance’ features production by Ninteen85 with co-production credits by 40.

Wizkid already featured Drake in a remix to his ‘Ojuelegba’ fan favourite and award-winning song.

The single ‘One Dance’ is off Drake’s forthcoming album, after his “What a time to be alive” in 2015.

The collaboration was said to have come about thanks to Skepta, a friend of Wizkid, who introduced the song to Drake during a Wireless Music Festival held in London. The crossover tune has gone on to have other covers and refixes with top artistes such as Sarkodie.

Wizkid has had other international collaborations preceding this one. He has worked with Grammy winner Angelique Kidjo, Ty Dolla $ign, and recorded a hook with Coldplay’s Chris Martin for pop star Rihanna. A performance with Chris Brown was in the works also in South Africa at the ‘X Tour’, so was another recording with UK star Tinie Tempah, and Norwegian pop icons Nico & Vinz.
