Wizkid And Drake Reunite On “Hush Up The Silence”


After making one of biggest songs of last year, Wizkid and Drake have reunited for what seems like another future chart-topper with “Hush Up The Silence.”

Wizkid first enlisted Drake and Skepta for a remix to his hit Ojuelegba in 2015, and he then appeared on Drake’s “One Dance” last year. “One Dance” was streamed more than a billion times on Spotify, breaking the service’s record for most streams of a song.

Now, he and Drake drop another Caribbean-fueled heater with “Hush Up The Silence.” This seems to have all the ingredients to give the duo another hit. 2DopeBoyz points out that the song may appear on Drake’s upcoming More Life, since Drizzy has described the project as a “playlist” instead of an album. Only time will tell.

Listen to “Hush Up The Silence” below.
