Nigeria's R&B prince Banky W returns with "Jaiye Ori Mi," an auto-tuned pop ballad crafted by frequent collaborator/beatmaker Masterkraft. The Empire Mates Entertainment chief executive captivates with his signature croons and even drops a few bars over the stacked synthesizers and summertime beat. "Jaiye Ori Mi" follows Banky W's huge hit "Yes/No" from last year's R&BW, as well as his collaborative Empire Mates State of Mind album. Stream and download "Jaiye Ori Mi" below.

Update: Watch Banky W's Lagos-shot music video for "Jaiye Ori Mi," directed by Clarence Peters below. It addresses and pokes fun at "a lot of the issues that have been brought up about him and EME" in the recent months.
