Having released hit singles like “Come Closer,” “Daddy Yo” and “Naughty Ride” this year, Nigerian rapper WizKid dropped his highly anticipated album Sounds From The Other Side on RCA Records in USA last friday.
The star-studded album features Drake, Major Lazer, Chris Brown, Ty Dolla $ign, Bucie and Trey Songz, making it one of the most heavyweight international releases to have come out of Africa this year.
Sounds From The Other Side debuted at number one on iTunes in Nigeria and at number 10 in the US. The Drake collaboration “Come Closer” peaked at number 29 on the Billboard R&B/hip hop chart, and the music video racking up 30 million views in three months.
The 12-track album is the follow up from 2014’s Ayo, which won Best Album at The Headies [Nigeria’s hip hop awards] in 2015. Sounds From The Other Side can be streamed on Spotify, Apple Music, and on Wizkid’s VEVO channel, and can be purchased from iTunes.
