WizKid is preparing to release a new single featuring Drake. The Nigerian singer-songwriter teased a Drizzy collaboration titled “Come Closer,” which is scheduled to drop on March 31.
“Come Closer” will be the fourth collaboration between WizKid and Drake. The two previously worked together on Drake’s hit single “One Dance” and WizKid’s “Ojuelegba” remix. In February, the artists teamed up again for a record called “Hush Up the Silence.” The song debuted on an episode of OVO Sound Radio.
WizKid’s upcoming single will be released through RCA Records and Sony Music International. The singer inked a multi-album deal with RCA and Sony earlier this month. The executives at RCA are excited about WizKid’s potential to introduce African music to an international audience.
“We are thrilled to welcome WizKid to the RCA Records family,” RCA Records Chairman and CEO Pete Edge said. “He has become a superstar in the African music scene and will be a game-changer in bringing African music to the world. We are extremely excited to have him as a part of RCA and are eager for the journey ahead.”
