Da L.E.S, AKA And Burna Boy Reconnect For The Summer Party Anthem 'P.A.I.D.'

South African rappers Da L.E.S and AKA link up once again with Nigeria's Burna Boy for the summer anthem "P.A.I.D."

South African rappers Da L.E.S and AKA link up once again with Nigeria's Burna Boy for "P.A.I.D.", the single that follows last year's massive "All Eyes On Me" collaboration. The new joint track plays like a summer party anthem with the South African MCs throwing down boastful verses and Burna holding down the dancehall-tinged singing. Its accompanying Sesan-directed music video is a flashy affair that sees the trio in mansions, foreign rides, playing golf and heading to the club. Watch the new visuals for Da L.E.S, AKA and Burna Boy's "P.A.I.D." below.
