Get Into Mr Eazi's Vibrant New Single 'Pour Me Water'

Mr Eazi just dropped his latest single "Pour Me Water," produced by E Kelly.

Mr Eazi's back.

Following the release of Life is Eazi Vol 1 earlier this year, a performance on James Corden, and the building of a love/hate relationship with Nigierans on Twitter, the musician is back with "Pour Me Water," a new track that features his signature laid back flow, as well as tidy production from E Kelly.

The song makes, what sounds like, a tongue-in-cheek reference to Holy Water. With its mellow and understated afrobeats vibe, "Pour Me Water" is a quintessential Mr Eazi track, and we're not complaining.


The singer also dropped a dance video for the song earlier today, that sees a talented group of dancers doing their thing, and—you guessed it—pouring him water.

Does this mean we can expect a new Mr Eazi project in the near future? We sure hope so.

Listen to the track below, via Mr Eazi's Soundcloud and watch the official dance video below.

Burna Boy Is the Only Featured Artist on Fall Out Boy's New Album, Because 2017

Nigeria's very own Burna Boy is the only artist featured on Fall Out Boy's upcoming album, "Mania."

We sure didn't see this one coming, and we're almost certain that you didn't either.

Naija dancehall heavyweight, and self-proclaimed "rock star," Burna Boy, will be the only artist featured on Fall Out Boy's upcoming, seventh studio album "Mania."

Yes, you read that right.

The band released the tracklist for their forthcoming seventh studio album, earlier this month, which lists a feature from Burna Boy on the song "Sunshine Riptide."

It's arguably the most random music news of the year, but somehow perfectly normal considering how odd 2017 has been. I mean, Ed Sheeran sang in twi on a Fuse ODG song last week, and we somehow didn't hate it. Truly nothing surprises us anymore.

We're not opposed to the idea of this cross-genre collaboration, we just didn't really envision ourselves checking for a Fall Out Boy album post-middle school. I mean who wouldn't be curious about what will come of a musical collaboration between the man who made "Yawa Dey" and the band that created "Dance Dance"—both of which we consider undisputed jams by the way. We still want to know the story of how all of this came about in the first place.

Who knows, this might be the rock and afrobeats fusion track that we never knew we needed or it might simply suck. Either way we're equipped to deal with the outcome of this situation, because, like we mentioned, we've already seen it all this year.

Fall Out Boy's "Mania" drops January 19 and we will actually be listening.
