DJ Tunez Links Up With Wizkid and Blaqjerzee on Jazzy New Single 'Gbese'

This one is a must-listen.

Following their memorable 2018 collaboration "Turn Up," which also featured Reekado Banks. Frequent collaborators DJ Tunez and Wizkid link up for their latest "Gbese" featuring Blaqjerzee, and we must say it's one of our favorites.

"Gbese" is a breezy banger that sees Wizkid flexing his vocals throughout the mellow track. The song boasts an old-school smooth jazz feel and samples Tic Tac and Tony Tetuila's "Fefe N'efe", as noted in Konbini. To top it all off, the just over 5-minute track ends with a standout saxophone riff.

As the summer kicks in we're definitely looking forward to hearing this one on rotation.


DJ Tunez release the single "Causing Trouble,' featuring Oxlade earlier this month.

Last we heard from Wizkid he was performing alongside Drake at the O2 Arena in London. While his fans are still waiting on the artist to drop an official single in 2019—he's gone noticeably under the radar so far other than a few collaborations—"Gbese" is definitely a satisfying listen.

Check it out below.
