Yemi Alade Connects With Rick Ross For 'Oh My Gosh' (Remix)

Listen to the new remix below.

Yemi Alade, the queen of afrobeats, comes through with a top-tier collaboration in the new remix to "Oh My Gosh" featuring Rick Ross.

"Oh My Gosh," which was initially released last year, is a sweet ballad, that sees Yemi singing about a lover that makes her feel overwhelmingly good. It sees Yemi departing from her usual dance-inducing afrobeat sound, and delivering a more sensual one that highlights her honeyed vocals.

This new remix sees the American rapper and Maybach Music founder jumping on to deliver an enjoyable verse full of all the Rick Ross-isms we've come to expect: hopping on private planes, riding in Porsches, and icing out everything.

The single was previously paired with a music video last year that follows Yemi as she gets gifted some fancy cars, parties with her girls in a pool and mansion, and eventually proceeds to get pulled over.

Rick Ross actually collaborated with another Nigerian star act, P-Square, years ago for "Beautiful Onyinye.'

Yemi Alade headlined OkayAfrica's "Mzansi Heat and Naija Beats" concert in New York City last year. Check out some videos from that show underneath.

The "Oh My Gosh" remix will reportedly be featured on Yemi Alade's upcoming album, Woman Of Steel, listen to it below.
