Get Into Mr Eazi's Vibrant New Single 'Pour Me Water'

Mr Eazi just dropped his latest single "Pour Me Water," produced by E Kelly.

Mr Eazi's back.

Following the release of Life is Eazi Vol 1 earlier this year, a performance on James Corden, and the building of a love/hate relationship with Nigierans on Twitter, the musician is back with "Pour Me Water," a new track that features his signature laid back flow, as well as tidy production from E Kelly.

The song makes, what sounds like, a tongue-in-cheek reference to Holy Water. With its mellow and understated afrobeats vibe, "Pour Me Water" is a quintessential Mr Eazi track, and we're not complaining.


The singer also dropped a dance video for the song earlier today, that sees a talented group of dancers doing their thing, and—you guessed it—pouring him water.

Does this mean we can expect a new Mr Eazi project in the near future? We sure hope so.

Listen to the track below, via Mr Eazi's Soundcloud and watch the official dance video below.
