Wizkid and Drake Collab on “Hush Up the Silence”
Back in October, Wizkid warned that he had some heat on the way with Drake. Today (Jan. 14), the Nigerian singer comes through with the Aubrey-assisted banger "Hush Up the Silence." You can listen to it above at around the 60-minute mark.
The club joint has a Caribbean vibe, with Wiz setting the riddims up on the first verse. "Came into the game, no one replace me/Mi love mine and she straight with no chaser/I love my guys, know mi all about mi paper/Mi got mi girls all around me, mi no chaser, yah/Starboy, call me number one/When mi tune drop, the girls, they bounce along/Mi no like nothing come between me and mi paper/So when mi come inna di place, mi undertaker," he rhymes.
Drizzy draws on his West Indian alter ego, spitting his verse with a reggaeton flow. "Too mix up in drama to go outside/Too mix up in drama to free my mind/Jealous people around me, I need to change my life/I just turn colder every time I try/What would I do without you, my chargi?/I don't feel that way with anybody/Tell me your secrets, I'm not messy/Steady it for me, girl, hold steady," he spits.
Drake and Wizkid continue their chemistry from the smash hit single "One Dance" off Views, which went four times platinum and held down the top spot on the Billboard 100 for 12 consecutive weeks.
Wiz is currently working on his forthcoming LP Sounds From the Other Side. A couple months back, he called the project his best work to date, after being questioned about new music from fans on Twitter. “I know! I’m sorry! Just know I’m about to release some of the best works I’ve ever recorded!!,” he posted.
