Wizkid Joins Yung L on New Track 'Eve Bounce (Remix)'

The song is 100% made for the summer.

Wizkid joins Yung L on the vibrant new song "Eve Bounce (Remix)"

The song is from Yung L's Juice and Zimm EP, taking its name from the fact that it samples Eve's 2002 hit "Let Me Blow Ya Mind.' The remix came about after a social media exchange between the the two Nigerian artists about making new music during quarantine.

The afro-dancehall song is totally made for the summer, with its dance-worthy production and airy feel. It features a breezy second verse from Wizkid and a catchy hook that also interpolates Mario's "Let Me Love You."

"That Eve Bounce Remix making me wanna be in the sun right now," Wizkid tweeted shortly after the song was made—and we'd have to agree. We'll likely have the song on repeat for some time.


It's been a chill year for Wizkid who released his stellar Soundman Vol.1 EP late last year. There's been hints that his next studio, the highly-anticiapted album Made In Lagos will drop sometime this year.

Yung L recently released his Juice and Zimm EP which boasts features from the likes of Sarkodie and Vanessa Mdee.

As COVID-19 cases rise in Nigeria, Nigerians aren't just worried about getting the virus, they are also concerned about a host of other challenges: our lack of efficient and effective healthcare—which is overwhelmed even without a pandemic—the lack of appropriate data, and the high levels of poverty and illiteracy in the country that make it difficult to enforce the strategies that will enable us to handle the pandemic and keep it under control.

In a bid to understand how Nigerians are dealing with mental health challenges now, on the ground, due to the pandemic—which has led to a lockdown restricting movement and also social distancing rules—we spoke with Nigerian journalist, lawyer and mental healthcare advocate Chude Jideonwo, who is the founder of Joy Inc. He shared insights from his experiences with The Joy Inc., which he founded in 2016 to help young people going through mental and emotional challenges.
