Watch "Bombay" (feat. Phyno) and "Joy," two new tracks from Nigerian starboy Wizkid. Watch him in the video for DJ Xclusive's "Jeje"

While there's still no official release date for Nigerian starboy Wizkid's highly-anticipated sophomore album, the Naija pop star's been keeping busy dropping a batch of addictive singles. In "Bombay," Wizzy's joined by Phyno (who recently released his own standout single "Alobam") over flute samples and military snares for a bouncing production. "Joy," on the other hand, is an uplifting ballad which sees Wizkid thanking his mom and revisiting childhood dreams. Watch Wizkid in the recently released DJ Xclusive club video for "Jeje."
