Download: American rapper DaBaby remakes Wizkid’s Essence song

DaBaby and Wizkid

Wizkid’s hit song, Essence, keeps gathering momentum and this time, American superstar rapper, DaBaby, has done a remake of the song. Moreso, DaBaby shot an official video for the two minutes freestyle which he posted on his YouTube channel.

The video which was posted a few hours ago has so far garnered over 620,000 views with about 7,500 comments.

Fondly called Big Wiz, the singer released the original version of the song, Essence, which is on his Made in Lagos album on October 30, 2020. The original version features sonorous singer, Tems.

Ever since the song’s release, it has been a favorite among many people around the world. The song has been tagged ‘the song of the summer by a Canadian superstar singer, Justin Beiber, who featured on the remix of the song and further shot a video for his verse as well.

Thanks to its new remix with Justin Bieber, Wizkid’s Essence featuring Tems moved into the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart with a 13-5 lift on the chart. The updated version —- now with Bieber also as a featured act —- continues the single’s rise as the latest crossover success for the Afrobeats genre.

With the gain, Wizkid secures his second top 10. He previously visited the region as a featured act, alongside Kyla, on Drake’s “One Dance,” which was No. 1 for a then-record-tying 18 weeks in 2016. Tems earns her first top 10 upon her first appearance on the chart.
