The Nigerian Star Boy, as we all know, features on "One Dance," the 'afrobeats'-leaning single that was released earlier this month. The track samples a remix of R&B singer Kyla's “Do You Mind." Wizkid also features in the full production credits for the album, which Drake also just shared on Instagram. Still no word on whether Wizkid features elsewhere on the album.

While everybody else awaits VIEWS it looks like the starboy just touched down in Freetown and he's chilling with the president of Sierra Leone.
