Burna Boy and Wizkid Are Working On New Music With Vybz Kartel
Both Burna Boy and Wizkid seem to be working on new tracks with dancehall superstar Vybz Kartel.
Jamaican dancehall and Nigerian afrobeats are like long-lost musical cousins.
They’re not identical twins, despite what mainstream radio, with their tendency to lump the two genres together into one all-encompassing “foreign and black” category, might have you believe. But they do, perhaps, share some DNA.
Dancehall production and dashes of patois have been consistently present in Burna’s music. His afro-dancehall sound is given a major co-sign in the form of Vybz's guest verse.
There’s even more Vybz on the way. A recent tweet from Wizkid confirms that a collaboration from the two artists is soon to come.

It was only a matter of time before some of afrobeats and dancehall's biggest stars were formally introduced through a collaboration, my only complaint is that it didn't happen sooner.
