A collaboration between the songbird, Tiwa Savage and street-hop sensation, Zinoleesky is one we never saw coming. As incalculable as it seems, the combination is apt, it produced a colourful rendition of Afro-pop’s groovy, experimental, and eclectic terrain.
Tiwa Savage and Zinoleesky finally deliver the product of what seems as their first ever collaboration, a new single entitled, Jaiye Foreign. The snippet previously surfaced online and had a lot of fans clamour for the final product, and now, here it is.
‘Jaiye Foreign‘ pairs Tiwa Savage and Zinoleesky over the mellifluous instrumentation of the track provided by renowned beatsmith, Pheelz. The song finds both vocalists in self-assured, especially Tiwa Savage as she takes control with unapologetic verses and a sassy hook. In the last few years especially, the Nigerian songstress has shown a willingness to revel in her successes as one of the most visible artists on the continent, and she continues to exhibit well-earned self-confidence on this track.
Zinoleesky on the other hand vocalizes side by side with Tiwa Savage, giving melodic responses to her lyrics. Tiwa sings, “maybe na highness make me look the finest to you, keep up with your finesse, I go wait till half past two.” Zinoleesky follows with a melodic response, “don’t listen to me girl I’m drunk, I’m only in love with my song, when I wake up in the morning, don’t say what are we now I’m sorry.”
It’s amazing to witness a collaboration between both singers with barely a decade between them, and we hope to get more as time goes by.
