WizKid ft. Drake – Come Closer

By Rali Chorbadzhiyska

 

WizKid just released a video for his collaboration with Drake yesterday (the 6th of April)! The video for ‘Come Closer’ was directed by DAPS, who has previously directed videos for Iggy Azalea and Kendrick Lamar. DAPS’s name is Dapo Fagbenle and he was born to Nigerian parents in London.

WizKid, whose name is Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, is a Nigerian artist, singer and songwriter. His promising collaboration with Drake now has a magnetizing video. Although the Canadian artist does not appear, there are a few gorgeous female dancers contributing to the visual experience.

The ladies are offering a glimpse into African fashion and electrifying Caribbean dancehall moves. With face paint and bright colours, their make-up is amazing!

The music video plays with colours later on when it changes to reddish, bluish, etc. lightning for a more intimate mood (that also reminds of Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling‘).

Here’s the lyrics (A-Z Lyrics):

[Drake:] Go outside, big time forward, heh

[Drake:]
Too mix up in drama to go outside
Too mix up in drama to free my mind
Jealous people around me, I need to change my life
I just turn colder every time I try
What would I do without you, my chargie?
I don’t feel that way with anybody
Tell me your secrets, I’m not messy
Steady it for me, girl, hold steady
I wanna put you in my life
Your hair smell like the tropics, your body look nice
One fuck cyaan hold me, we gotta go twice
I’m here for you, just tell me what you like
I wanna put you in my life

[Wizkid:]
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Baby, come closer
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Baby, come closer
