Wizkid’s fourth studio album, Made In Lagos has been causing quite a stir ever since it dropped in October last year (2020). Particularly interesting is how one of the songs on the album “Essence” featuring Tems keeps climbing up charts, even internationally.
Now, the latest development with this hot track has fans tweeting and streaming online. After teasing on his socials, Wizkid finally dropped the “something special” he was alluding to. Turns out it’s a remix of the song “Essence” with Justin Bieber. Sweet!
The remix was released today, August 13th, 2021, and from all indications, it bangs even more. Trust Justin Bieber to add more spice to the whole mix with his amazing vocals.
It’s also exciting how this is a big boost for Tem’s musical career. Ever since Try Me in 2019, the talented singer has been in the spotlight as one of the Nigerian artists to watch out for.
According to an interview with Billboard, Tunji Balogun, CEO of Def Jam Recordings mentioned that “…a narrative on the internet started about the song being the song of the summer — and we took that energy and ran with it.”
The song is currently number 54 on Billboard Hot 100. Nigeria to the world!
