Made in Lagos will not only engulf listeners in the unique sounds, live instrumentation and vibes of Lagos, but will celebrate Wizkid’s love and appreciation for where he comes from and his inspirational journey with standout tracks such as “Blessed” and “Reckless.” The 14-track project includes features from an incredible group of chart-topping artists – Burna Boy, Skepta, Damian Marley, H.E.R. Ella Mai and Starboy Entertainment’s youngest signee Terri.

Originally scheduled for release on October 15, Wizkid dedicates the project to the citizens of Nigeria in light of the police brutality occurring in his beloved country. “It has been beautiful to see Nigerians around the world coming together to protest against police brutality,” says Wizkid.  “Unity is key. The youth of Nigeria need our collective voices to continue to shine a spotlight to what is happening inside the country. I want to play my part in this and in the movement for a better Nigeria, a better place to live for ourselves, our families – our communities. We will get through this together. Together we move. #endSARS.”

Wizkid – No Stress

Today, Nigerian singer-songwriter Wizkid shares his provocative new single “No Stress,” the latest release from the reigning global Afropop superstar. The track will be featured on his eagerly anticipated project Made In Lagos, set for an October 15 release via Starboy/RCA Records/Sony Music International and available for pre-order/pre-save now.

Producer P2J provides the swaying rhythm on “No Stress” while Wizkid chronicles a specific type of situationship for a woman that “got her own, but needs some love.” The track is the follow up to previously released gem, “Smile” featuring multi-Grammy Award winner H.E.R., described as “an infusion of Afro, Soul, and reggae to come up with a unique sound” by Daily New Hip Hop.

Both songs are the latest offering from Wizkid’s fourth full-length studio project Made In Lagos, which will not only engulf listeners in the unique sounds, live instrumentation and vibes of Lagos, but will celebrate Wizkid’s appreciation for where he comes from and his inspirational journey.

In addition to music, Wizkid continues to be omnipresent across multiple endeavors. Last October, Wizkid relaunched his indoor Starboy Fest, which sold out the o2 Arena for the second year in a row and included new territories in Europe (Manchester & Paris), and this May he refocused his energy on his Starboy Entertainment imprint in Africa by executive producing the “Afro Series,” the debut EP from Terri, the youngest artist on the roster. With significant partnerships with brands such as Tecno Mobile, CIROC, Nike, and United Bank of Africa, Wizkid has solidified himself as a millennial pioneer for African entertainment and business of lasting global impact.

Kygo × Valerie Broussard

Global superstar, producer, and DJ Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll, a.k.a. Kygo, reunites with powerhouse vocalist Valerie Broussard for new track “The Truth.” The song is now available across all streaming platforms and will be featured on his upcoming third album Golden Hour, out May 29 via Sony Music International/Ultra Records/RCA Records. Kygo will kick off his album release day with a performance on Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series with OneRepublic and Broussard.

“The Truth” marks the second collaboration between Kygo and Broussard, who previously released “Think About You” together in February 2019. It follows Kygo’s “Lose Somebody” with OneRepublic, “Freedom” with Zak Abel, “I’ll Wait” with Sasha Sloan, “Like It Is” with Zara Larsson and Tyga, and “Higher Love” with Whitney Houston. “Higher Love” has more than 651 million audio and video streams combined and charted at Top 40 radio. It is a cover of the 1986 Steve Winwood classic. The Whitney Houston estate presented Kygo with the archival recording of Houston’s version, which was previously recorded as a Japan-only bonus track on her I’m Your Baby Tonight physical album in 1990. Upon hearing the song, Kygo raced into the studio, thrilled to be given the opportunity to make music with one of the greatest female vocalists of all time. “Higher Love” was written by Steve Winwood and Will Jennings and produced by  Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll and Narada Michael Walden.
