Wizkid continues to keep the good vibes coming. Through.

Following his surprise announcement earlier in the day, Wizkid has now dropped the remix to his Tems-assisted hit “Essence” featuring Justin Bieber. On the now remixed feel-good track, the “Peaches” singer adds his star power to it and even went ahead to declare the “song of the summer.”

The original song is currently No. 54 on the Billboard Hot 100, and appears on Wizkid’s October 2020 album ‘Made in Lagos’ project which features appearances from Ella Mai, H.E.R., Damian Marley, and Burna Boy.

Big Wiz is to kick off his 17-date trek “Made in Lagos” tour across the U.S. and Canada starting September, all through January. Below are the lyrics to the remix version of his hit single ‘Essence’ to which Justin adds spice and vibes.

Sing along:
