Wizkid Has A Song With R. Kelly, And You Can Hear It Now

Nigerian superstar Wizkid features on "I Just Want To Thank You," a track from R. Kelly's new album 'The Buffet.'

(Editor's note: Since this post went up, the Okayafrica office has been discussing exactly how and whether to cover R. Kelly given his past allegations of child abuse. Can a great artist be a bad person? Of course. But what does responsible coverage look like? Leave us your thoughts in the comments.)

You read that right. Wizkid is featured on “I Just Want To Thank You,” a bonus track on R. Kelly’s new album The Buffet. The guitar-driven dance tune sees the Nigerian superstar and the R&B singer trading bars about doing the wine & dancing to calypso with their significant others.

Wizkid’s had a huge year across North America and Europe, sparked by Drake and Skepta’s remix of his hit “Ojuelegba.” Hear his verse on R. Kelly’s “I Just Want To Thank You” below via NotJustOk.
