Nigerian singer and songwriter Wizkid has finally released his new single featuring American rapper Future as promised. According to him, he said that this song will be one of his best song so far. Wizkid takes Afro-beat to the world as he introduces Future to his new dreams-come-true Afrobeat sound on this fresh tune.
“Everytime” is, essentially, an old-school R&B song about asking a girl to go steady, and WizKid and Future sound particularly touched by love here. WizKid extols the virtues of his lover’s touch, asking her to stay in bed just a little longer, while Future murmurs sweet nothings in the background. WizKid’s flow is so bouncy and bubbly, that it forces Future to follow in kind. We’re so used to hearing Future rap about a bleak world, drowning in his codeine double-cup, that hearing him sing tenderly can take some getting used to. The Future of “Everytime” admits proudly that his mind is on romance at all times: “I think about you every day, every second,” and he even sound endearingly unsure when he sings, “If I love you back, you will love me too.” Aiding these two is clean and clear production by Shizzi and Salaam Remi, dominated by simple guitar strums and kisses of polyrhythmic percussion. Perhaps the only friction in “Everytime” is that it ends so suddenly, abruptly falling off a cliff right as WizKid punctuates his last sweet word. While it lasts though, he and Future find strength in sensitivity
Future Sticks side-by-side with Wizkid verse as their both take turns and expertly follows up the tune as expected.
This just adds to Wizzy’s large and still growing catalog of international collaborations as he aims to keep the Nigerian flag flying in the international scene.
This one was produced by award winning music producer Shizzi.
