It might not surprise you to know that Drake‘s musical roots aren’t dancehall. His megahit One Dance featured the work of Nigerian artist Wizkid who added authentic flavor to the track which was a collision of UK dance and dancehall. In return for contributing to Drake’s first US number one track, he premiered Wizkid’s new track on his OVO Sound show over the weekend. With well over a million likes on Facebook, Wizkid is a huge star in his own right but now he’s starting to make waves in the US.
Like This, is a collaboration between Ghanian producer Henry X and Wizkid. As expected, it’s dancehall perfection – sunshine-soaked and packed full of rhythm. If you haven’t ventured further into the dancehall genre than Drake’s One Dance or Justin Bieber’s Sorry then this is an excellent entry point.
