Wizkid, a Nigerian music artist, has stated that Justin Bieber approached him about remixing his smash single “Essence.”
Wizkid had Bieber on the remix of his hit single ‘Essence,’ which is from his upcoming album ‘Made in Lagos,’ which will be released in 2020.
The remix is now at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, thanks to Bieber’s appearance on the track.
Wizkid claimed that Bieber was the one who contacted him about the remix.
“He reached out to me and he loved the record. He sent the verse and it was just fire,” Wizkid told American entertainment media platform, Complex.
“We linked up and we performed it together. We got some more music together as well.”
When Bieber joined the remix, he was ecstatic, thanking Wiz for allowing him to be a part of the “tune of the summer.”
He also went on to make a video for his verse and invited Wizkid to perform the song during his Made in America concert.
Wizkid’s song “Essence,” which also features Nigerian artist Tems, has shattered multiple records.
It was the first Nigerian song to reach the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 list in July. It topped the Billboard Hip Hop and R&B chart in September and was certified platinum in October, making it the first Nigerian song to do so.
