Listen to Wizkid's Laid-Back New Single 'No Stress'

Wizkid's 'No Stress' is a fittingly mellow number which comes ahead of the release of his long-awaited album 'Made In Lagos'.

Wizkid recently dropped his latest single titled "No Stress". And just as the name suggests, the track is a smooth and mellow number that is sure to have you kicking your feet up with ease. The also track comes ahead of the Nigerian superstar's long-awaited album Made In Lagos. Trust us when we say this sneak preview of the project is fire.

Naturally, Wizkid was coy about the imminent release of his latest track. Yesterday, he simply tweeted "no stress" which of course sent his fans into a frenzy in anticipation of what the artist had in the pipeline. At a time where the wold over is reeling from the effects of a pandemic, protests and a general shifting from what we've come to know as "normal", "No Stress" is indeed a stress-reliever with its subtle instrumentals and mid-paced tempo. This past July, Wizkid celebrated his 30th birthday with the release of "Smile", a sweet little number where he recruited Grammy award-winning American artist H.E.R.

Made In Lagos, which has admittedly been a long time coming, is reportedly set to drop on October 15th of this year with a reported 14 tracks and some dope collaborations. The project, which is currently available for pre-order, is set to be Wizkid's fourth studio album and we sure hope he pulls through because the fans are waiting!
