Back in February, OVO Sound Radio premiered a new WizKid and Drake collaboration by the name “Hush Up the Silence.” A little over a month later, WizKid has fered up an ficial version the song, with the new title, “Come Closer.”
The track sees WizKid and his “One Dance” collaborator float over a smooth, island-inspired instrumental that meshes perfectly with their vocals. The two also sound more than a little comfortable on the same track, which makes sense, considering this is at least the third time they’ve collaborated.
WizKid handles the first verse on the track, singing with the swagger that helped make him a star. In the first verse the Nigerian singer belts out, “Came into the game, no one replace me/Me love my Hennessy straight with no chaser/All my guys know me all about me paper/Me got me girls all around me, me no chaser, yah.”
For his part, Drizzy delivers one his typical verses about distrust and the perils extreme success. He could be singing about someone specific in his verse, but these are also the sort themes he’s always tackled in all his music.
On the verse, Drizzy sings, “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.”
