Original Star Boy and Nigerian superstar Wizkid just released his newest single "Sweet Love" on Beats 1 Radio with Zane Lowe. The song follows his speedy dancehall tune "Daddy Yo" which was released at the very end of 2016 and now has over 5 million views on YouTube. In a snippet of an interview with Ebro, Wizkid said that the song was inspired by his hit "Ojuelegba" from his 2014 Ayo album.

"Sweet Love," accompanied by slowed drums and horns, dials back the fast paced tempo of "Daddy Yo," giving more of the traditional Nigerian afrobeat sound. Tomorrow on Beats 1, Ebro will interview Wizkid. In another snippet, Wiz mentioned that he is gearing to release a mixtape to prep fans for his sophomore album. Listen to the track below.
