Zlatan Drops New Song and Video 'Yeye Boyfriend'

Zlatan really wants you to get rid of your useless boyfriend.

Nigerian artist Zlatan drops a new single ahead of the release of his upcoming debut album Zanku: The Album.

On "Yeye Boyfriend" the popular "Zanku (Leg Work)" singer reasons for breaking up with time-wasting boyfriends (yeye is a humorous Yoruba term often used to describe someone as "useless" or "senseless"). The song is a change of pace for the artist, as it features him singing lightheartedly rather than delivering the grittier rap sound he's known for.

The comedic video sees the artist playing the role of a therapist to several failing couples. He calls his practice "Yeye Family Therapy." The video was shot by Visionary Pictures.

The artist also recently announced that he'll be linking up with Burna Boy soon for another collaboration called "Gbeku," which is the name of another dance the artist is popularizing. Judging by the undeniable critical and commercial success of "Killin' Dem," it's sure to be a memorable one.

The artist has featured on several tracks throughout the year, including "Shotan" with Tiwa Savage, and "Bum Bum" with Davido. Zanku: The Album is set to drop on November 1 and is now available for pre-order.

Watch the music video for "Yeye Boyfriend" below.
