Watch Dr Sid's New Music Video for 'Good Time'

The energy in this video is incredibly infectious.

Sidney Onoriode Esiri or Dr Sid as he's popularly known, has finally dropped the music video for his first release of the year—"Good Time".


Mavin Records' Dr Sid brings the heat in this upbeat and energetic visual. The music video opens with shots of the ocean and then pans out with aerial shots of palm trees, giving us relaxed beach vibes. Dr Sid then appears and the scenes jump to a number of beautiful women hanging out by the pool.

In the music video, the prolific Nigerian artist sings about how he just wants to have a good time with his friends and of course, the vibrant scenes of a house party (both outdoors and indoors) only serve to drive that point home.

Dr Sid worked with the talented Ozedikus who produced the up-tempo beat which honestly makes "Good Time" such a banger. Unlimited LA, who directed the music video, ensured that the scenes are clean and the deliberate use of bold colors enhances that and makes it an enjoyable watch. If you're in the mood to just get down and groove, then this care-free and summery-sounding track and its dope visuals are for you.

Listen to Swae Lee & Drake's​ New Single 'Won't Be Late,' Produced by Tekno

As well as production, Tekno also gets a writing credit on the new song.

Rae Sremmurd's Swae Lee drops two new singles today, "Won't Be Late" featuring Drake and "Sextasy."

"Won't Be Late" is notably produced by Nigeria's own Tekno. The new single is built on a mid tempo, afro-fusion-inspired beat, filled with claps, and light keyboard chords.

As well as production, Tekno also gets a writing credit on the new song. You can hear his input when Drake sings lines like, 'Ikebe, pressing on me heavy' and 'Bakasi, moving on me wassy.'

If you remember, Drake shouted out Tekno last year as one of his many inspirations behind Scorpion and posted a picture of them working on something together.

"Won't Be Late" is paired with Swae Lee's "Sextasy" which was produced by Mike WiLL Made-It and Chopsquad DJ.

Tekno's had a lively past few months. He was recently featured in Beyoncé's The Lion King: The Gift album and dropped his "Agege" collaboration with Zlatan. He was also accused of being a "threat to security" by Nigeria's Council for Arts & Culture for that single's pole dancing video.

Listen to "Won't Be Late" below.
