Grammy Award-winning singer, Wizkid has featured Canadian pop star Justin Bieber on the remix of his popular “Essence” song, which is off his “Made in Lagos” album.
Recall that on Thursday, Big Wiz teased the collaboration on his Twitter page when he tweeted: “Got Something special for you guys tomorrow.”
Later in the day, Wizkid also made the announcement of the collaboration via an Instagram post with a poster that read, “Wizkid. Tems. Justin Bieber. Essence”.
Meanwhile, in a similar post, Justin Bieber on his social media page has thanked Wizkid for the chance to collaborate with him on the song.
He wrote, captioning the post on his Instagram page;
“Thank u for letting me jump on the song of the summer. Essence remix out now”
Originally featuring upcoming Nigerian singer Tems, the song broke records and became a favorite among both Nigerians and the international audience early this year.
Essence has since then performed very well on streaming sites as well as local and international charts.
In July 2021, Essence became the first Nigerian song in history to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 and the Billboard Global 200!
