Tiwa Savage Jumps on Young Paris' 'Best of Me' Remix

The two new Roc Nation signees link up for the "Best of Me" official remix.

Young Paris gets a big feature from Nigeria's "Queen of afrobeats" Tiwa Savage for the official remix of "Best of Me."


The collabo makes sense, since Paris and Tiwa are both new additions to Jay Z's Roc Nation family.

"Best of Me," which also features Ben Bronfman (of Teachers), was actually originally released as Young Paris' celebratory announcement of signing to the Roc.

The track sees YP dropping fast lines and big claims like “Always talking about that melanin” and “I made Africans dope again.”

Check out the remix streaming below and download it now on iTunes and Spotify.

If you missed it, Young Paris recently dropped another Naija music video collaboration. Watch his "One Time" clip with Reekado Banks underneath.
