Listen to Swae Lee & Drake's​ New Single 'Won't Be Late,' Produced by Tekno

As well as production, Tekno also gets a writing credit on the new song.

Rae Sremmurd's Swae Lee drops two new singles today, "Won't Be Late" featuring Drake and "Sextasy."

"Won't Be Late" is notably produced by Nigeria's own Tekno. The new single is built on a mid tempo, afro-fusion-inspired beat, filled with claps, and light keyboard chords.

As well as production, Tekno also gets a writing credit on the new song. You can hear his input when Drake sings lines like, 'Ikebe, pressing on me heavy' and 'Bakasi, moving on me wassy.'

If you remember, Drake shouted out Tekno last year as one of his many inspirations behind Scorpion and posted a picture of them working on something together.

"Won't Be Late" is paired with Swae Lee's "Sextasy" which was produced by Mike WiLL Made-It and Chopsquad DJ.

Tekno's had a lively past few months. He was recently featured in Beyoncé's The Lion King: The Gift album and dropped his "Agege" collaboration with Zlatan. He was also accused of being a "threat to security" by Nigeria's Council for Arts & Culture for that single's pole dancing video.

Nigerian artist Tekno, has been accused of "threatening security" after the release of his latest music video "Agege," BBC Africa reports.

The singer was brought in for questioning last Wednesday, after Lagos police claimed he breached public decency laws after a video of him in a truck with semi-nude women went viral after someone spotted the scene in Lagos traffic. He was taken in for questioning over allegations that he was doing promotion for a strip club.

The artist apologized for the incident, releasing a statement explaining that the setup was for an upcoming music video he was shooting, and that he and his friends were simply "having fun" as they moved between locations for the shoot.
