Wizkid Remixes Jamie xx, Young Thug & Popcaan’s ‘I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)’

Nigerian StarBoy Wizkid delivers a dancehall remix of Jamie xx's summertime banger "I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times)"

Wizkid comes through with a spliff-laced remix of Jamie xx, Young Thug, and Popcaan’s summertime banger “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times).” The Nigerian StarBoy takes the In Colour highlight to even further dancehall territory as he pumps the bass and serenades his beloved plant & girl backed by The xx producer’s steel drums.

“I love the song ‘Good Times’ by Jamie xx, Young Thug and Popcaan. So I jumped on a ‘refix’ this morning. Lol” Wizkid wrote on Twitter. If you recall, the Nigerian singer was the recipient of a huge remix himself earlier this year when Drake and Skepta jumped on “Ojuelegba."

Stream and download Wizkid’s freestyle remix of “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)” below. According to an adlib at the end of the song, we can expect new Wizkid music in two days.



Interview: Wavy The Creator Is Ready to See You Now

The multidisciplinary Nigerian-American artist on tapping into all her creative outlets, creating interesting things, releasing a new single and life during quarantine.

A trip canceled, plans interrupted, projects stalled. It is six months now since Wavy the Creator has had to make a stop at an undisclosed location to go into quarantine and get away from the eye of the pandemic.

The professional recording artist, photographer, writer, fashion artist, designer, and evolving creative has been spending all of this time in a house occupied by other creatives. This situation is ideal. At least for an artist like Wavy who is always in a rapid motion of creating and bringing interesting things to life. The energy around the house is robust enough to tap from and infuse into any of her numerous creative outlets. Sometimes, they also inspire trips into new creative territories. Most recently, for Wavy, are self-taught lessons on a bass guitar.

Wavy's days in this house are not without a pattern, of course. But some of the rituals and personal rules she drew up for herself, like many of us did for internal direction, at the beginning of the pandemic have been rewritten, adjusted, and sometimes ditched altogether. Some days start early and end late. Some find her at her sewing machine fixing up thrift clothes to fit her taste, a skill she picked up to earn extra cash while in college, others find her hard at work in the studio, writing or recording music.
