Watch Young Paris & Tiwa Savage's New Video For 'Best of Me (Remix)'

Young Paris connects with Nigeria's "Queen of afrobeats" Tiwa Savage for the new "Best of Me (Remix)" video.

Young Paris has been a constant presence on the scene since signing to Jay Z's Roc Nation and the release of his latest EP, Afrobeats.


The new EP sees the NYC-based rapper/singer trying out several shades of afrobeats.

In "Best of Me (Remix)," one of its standout tracks, he connects with none-other-than Nigeria's "Queen of afrobeats" Tiwa Savage for a ramped-up reworking of his previously released single.

The collaboration makes sense, since Tiwa herself is also a new addition to the Roc Nation family.

The new music video "Best of Me (Remix)" follows Young Paris and Tiwa Savage to a party on a hillside mansion and features plenty of dance moves, of course.

“Best of Me,” which also features Ben Bronfman, was originally released as Young Paris’ celebratory announcement of his signing to the Roc, and featured on his African Vogue EP.

Paris' new Afrobeats EP also includes collaborations with Reekado Banks and Blackah Ranks. It's available now on TIDALiTunes/Apple Music and Spotify.

Both albums, which are currently available on all major streaming platforms, feature African music royalty Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga and Alpha P, who joined a select group of artists from around the continent to produce these tracklists.

Still blazing charts after the success of his debut album Old Romance, Tekno has a growing list of impressive collaborations with artists like Davido, Drake, Beyonce, to name a few. The singer does not have not one, but two of his hit songs featured; "Waka Waka" is featured on the official soundtrack and "Skeletun" on Rhythms of Zamunda.
