DJ Tunez and Wizkid Drop the Carefree Video for 'Gbese'

It's easily one of our favorite tracks of the summer.

DJ Tunez and Wizkid share the music video for their standout collaboration, "Gbese."

The fun and stripped down video begins with DJ Tunez and a group of women look party-ready as they saunter around in their traditional attire. Wizkid enters the shot later, delivering a mellowed-out live performance backed by DJ Tunez, who's a three-man band on the keyboard, drums and guitar.

The duo appear laidback and carefree as they perform in the all-white space, complementing the track's breezy production by Blaqjerzee.

The visual ends with DJ Tunez and friends in 70s-inspired clothing—afro wig and all—having a disco of their own. While the original track ends with a nearly 3-minute saxophone break, for this version, Wizkid adds a brand new verse, singing about his number one girl.

DJ Tunez Links Up With Wizkid and Blaqjerzee on Jazzy New Single 'Gbese'

This one is a must-listen.

Following their memorable 2018 collaboration "Turn Up," which also featured Reekado Banks. Frequent collaborators DJ Tunez and Wizkid link up for their latest "Gbese" featuring Blaqjerzee, and we must say it's one of our favorites.

"Gbese" is a breezy banger that sees Wizkid flexing his vocals throughout the mellow track. The song boasts an old-school smooth jazz feel and samples Tic Tac and Tony Tetuila's "Fefe N'efe", as noted in Konbini. To top it all off, the just over 5-minute track ends with a standout saxophone riff.

As the summer kicks in we're definitely looking forward to hearing this one on rotation.
