Nigerian pop stars Tiwa Savage and Olamide connect for the uplifting shuffle of “Standing Ovation,” the second single from Tiwa Savage’s recent R.E.D (Romance, Expression & Dance) album.

The track’s an addictive cocktail of Mavin Records boss Don Jazzy’s bass, keyboard lines and drum work. Paired with Clarence Peters’ Nigerian-shot dance video, it’s a Naija pop home run.

R.E.D, which also features songs with 2face Idibia, Dr. Sid, D’Prince, Reekado Banks, and Busy Signal, is up for free download.
