Watch Wizkid's 'In My Bed' Video Shot In Miami

Watch Wizkid's Miami-shot video for "In My Bed" off his sophomore album 'AYO.'


Last week Wizkid surprised us with the premature, though long overdue, release of his sophomore album AYO. Throughout the past year or so Wizzy had slowly and sneakily trickled out a good chunk off the seventeen-track LP, including the Femi Kuti-featuring "Jaiye Jaiye" (one of our favorites of 2013), "Show You The Money," "On Top Your Matter," "Bombay," "Joy," and "Caro" with his fellow Starboy L.A.X. The album release also came with a few discoveries, like a collaboration with Konvict Muzik boss Akon on "For You" and Tyga showing up on a remix for "Show You The Money." With AYO continuing to dominate the iTunes charts (it's standing firm as the #1 "World" record at the moment– P-Square are #4 with Double Trouble), Wizzy's let loose the lavish visuals for his slightly auto-tuned "In My Bed," an early scorcher off the album and the first single since its drop. Directed by Soto Jose, the lo-quality, home video footage style video follows the Nigerian pop prince basking around Miami's Intracoastal, where he spent his 24th birthday on a yacht back in July. Watch Wizkid's "In My Bed" video below.

Rema Welcomes 2021 With New Single 'Bounce'

The Don Jazzy produced track reminds us of why the Nigerian singer-songwriter is topping charts.

Nigerian golden boy Rema took his time on deciding how to start of 2021—and we're glad he did.

The afropop hitmaker is out with his first project of the year, "Bounce", after stunning fans with word of an upcoming album, and the cooks in this kitchen have not disappointed.

Keeping it in the Mavin Records family, legendary producer Don Jazzy sprinkles his magic on the track, while undoubtedly motivating the young singer-songwriter to be his best self. And with this track being like nothing we've heard from Rema before, one could say Jazzy succeeded. "Bounce", fast-paced and fierce, is a love song dedicated to bewitchingly beautiful and blessed bottoms. The candid declaration and hip shaking beat are a force duo and we can't help but love it.

Of the single and collaboration with head honcho Don Jazzy, Rema says, "This record was inspired by the luscious and magnificent body of the African woman. Furthermore, I'm really excited about this tune because it's my first single with the legendary Don Jazzy."

Honestly, when you start the year off with a banger, you get to make songs about butts.
