The poolside ready single comes from his sophomore album, <em>LEVELS, </em>and enlists help from the Nigerian Don Gorgon,<strong> <a href="http://www.okayafrica.com/tag/burna-boy/" target="_blank">Burna Boy</a></strong>, motswako wordsmiths <strong><a href="https://twitter.com/2freshles" target="_blank">Da Les</a> </strong>and <strong><a href="https://twitter.com/JRafrika" target="_blank">JR</a></strong>.
