Listen to Tory Lanez Cover Wizkid & Davido In 'International Fargo'

The new mixtape features covers of "Soco" and "Fall."

Tory Lanez comes through with the surprise drop of his International Fargo mixtape.

The Canadian artist had recently teased the project while on tour with Drake in Europe. "I was on the couch wondering if I should make the most out of my Europe experience and drop a free tape full of the remixes to the hottest international songs right now!?! ... I'd call it #InternationalFargo," Lanez wrote on Instagram.

The 5-track mixtape includes covers of two massive Nigerian songs: Wizkid's "Soco" featuring Terri, Ceeza Milli and Spotless, and Davido's "Fall,"which has become the most watched Nigerian music video on Youtube and the longest charting Nigerian pop song in Billboard history.

It also features covers of tracks from French-Malian singer Aya Nakamura, Jamaica's Koffee (who has her own great cover of Burna Boy) and Stylo G's "Touchdown" remix featuring Nicki Minaj and Vybz Kartel.


"Just dropped 5 remixes to some songs I like," Lanez added, "International Fargo is out now for free!!! Not on Apple or Spotiry cuz it's not an official release but it was fun and I hope my fans enjoy it while we wait for new music."

The war — which has forced citizens to flee, has tipped the region into famine, and has barricaded humanitarian aid from reaching the most vulnerable — has now been going on for about 11 months.

As the beginning of the school season draws nearer, safely reopening schools, making education accessible, and protecting children from the impacts of violence in the affected regions is a priority for aid agencies.

"As schools prepare to reopen in early October in most parts of the country, in Tigray and the bordering regions of Afar and Amhara, where the conflict has expanded, education remains at a standstill," Director of Education Cannot Wait, Yasmine Sherif, told Global Citizen.
