Watch the Accompanying Visuals to Blaq Jerzee and Wizkid's New Track 'Arizona'

Blaq Jerzee takes his collaboration with Wizkid to the desert in this new music video.

Blaq Jerzee has just dropped his new collaboration with Wizkid titled "Arizona" along with the accompanying visuals.

The Nigerian superstars are definitely hitting the ground running and setting the pace for what fans can expect music-wise this year.


Listen to "Arizona" on Apple Music or Spotify.

"Arizona" is a fun, mid-tempo banger which sees the duo's individual performances seamlessly flowing with one another.

The visuals which are shot in the desert, have both Blaq Jerzee and Wizkid navigating sand dunes on quad bikes. It's a straightforward video depicting the two artists just vibing out while surrounded by endless stretches of golden sands. Directed by Nelsonegh, whose continued aerial shots in several scenes add to the expansive feel of the location, the music video aligns well with the core themes of the song itself—hustling, chasing money and getting high.

The new track comes after the duo's previous collaboration titled "Blow" on Wizkid's 2019 EP Soundman Vol. 1 which was released late last year. The surprise project dropped just before the new year and left fans with some great music to carry them through the festive season.

Wizkid has since announced that the follow-up to that EP, Soundman Vol. 2, will drop sometime before his highly-anticipated upcoming album Made In Lagos (MIL).

How Technology Is Playing a Crucial Role in the #EndSARS Protests

Young people in Nigeria have successfully managed to use technological innovations to organize and make the #EndSARS protests run incredibly efficiently and easily. This moment will go down in history as a revolution that was birthed via technology.

It has been more than a week since young people in Nigeria took to the streets to demand that the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, infamously known as SARS, be scrapped for good. Created in 1992, this police unit was originally set up to beat back armed robbery, the use of firearms and rising cases of kidnappings that grew in the late eighties. However, the unit went rogue, becoming more notorious for its savagery than actual crime-fighting. With a rap sheet ranging from profiling, harassment and assault to, in more extreme cases, slaughtering innocent citizens, these quasi-officers have unleashed terror on the nation for more than two decades.

Their victims are predominantly young Nigerians profiled on appearance—whether they drive exotic vehicles, use the latest gadgets, have their hair dyed or locked, or have piercings. In some cases, working in tech often gets conflated with financial fraud. For people who don't meet the absurd criteria, the mood of the officer can often become the difference between life and death.
