You Need To Hear Mr Eazi, Seyi Shay & Shakka Jump On Da Beatfreakz’s ‘Take Over’

You're gonna have this UK-meets-Nigeria jam on repeat.

UK-based Nigerian production duo Da Beatfreakz have been steadily dropping notable collabs with the likes of Moelogo, Nadia Rose, Sneakbo and others, the most popular of which has been the head-nodder "Swinging In Da Whip" with Giggs.

The duo has now come through with the new single "Take Over," which sees their production taking a more aftobeats-influenced 'Afro swing' approach than their previous drops.

"Take Over" boasts an impressive cast that includes the always-buzzing Mr Eazi (who reportedly recently signed to Diplo's label Mad Decent), Nigerian singer Seyi Shay and London's Shakka, who arguably steals the track here with his verse.

Check out "Take Over" below and grab it here.
