Diamond Platnumz Connects With Rick Ross For 'Waka'

The Tanzanian superstar links up with Ricky Rozay for this big—and heavily commercialized—new collaboration.

East African mega star Diamond Platnumz comes through with this huge collaboration before the end of the year.

The Tanzanian singer links up with none-other-thank Maybach Music boss Rick Ross for "Waka," a house-influenced new single about popping bottles (in particular Belaire champagne), partying with girls, having good times... you get the point. Ross is a longtime brand ambassador of sorts of the champagne.

Diamond Platnumz holds it down over a beat that's heavily indebted to DJ Mustard, while Ross drops his own verse about being a "born winner" while shouting out Belaire's #blackbottleboys.

The Moe Musa-directed music video follows both stars to a mansion pool party where you'll see all the things you can expect to see at a Rick Ross mansion party.

All in all, the track's pretty catchy and we can see it playing everywhere during this upcoming holiday season. Wish it wasn't so #commercialized but I guess that's all you get these days with Rozay. At least its far better than Ross' previous cringeworthy statements during his visit to Africa.

Check out Diamond Platnumz and Rick Ross' "Waka" below.
