Listen to Wizkid's Catchy New Track 'Gucci Snake' Featuring Slimcase

The highly anticipated track is finally here.

Wizkid has had a huge year, dropping a number of singles and unforgettable features, but he's not done yet.

Today, the Nigerian megastar has dropped the much-talked about single "Gucci Snake" featuring fellow Naija artist Slimcase. Wizkid had been teasing the highly-anticipated song throughout the year and it's finally here for fans to enjoy.

"Gucci Snake," is a catchy jam that sees Wizkid bragging over upbeat production. It's a departure from the mid-tempo vibes of many of his more recent singles like "Fever" and "Master Groove," which he released last month. This one is sure to be on rotation at all the parties as the holidays approach.

Early this month, the artist appeared on two tracks from star producer Metro Boomin's latest album, and according to the producer, we can expect more music from the two of them in the near future, which means we have even more Starboy to look forward to.

For now, listen to "Gucci Snake" below.
