Starboy Wizkid is a genius when it balls down to delivering hits, whether he owns the track or was the featured artiste.
Mp3bullet.ng unveils a list of 10 times Wizkid has given us hits through his international collaborations.
Drake ft. Wizkid – One Dance
The Canadian rapper in 2016 teamed up with Wizkid for this record-breaking song. It is one of the tracks off his fourth studio albums, “Views.”
This combo came after Drizzy appeared on Wizkid’s Ojuelegba remix in 2014.

It came off Beyonce’s 2019 soundtrack album The Lion King. The music video won Wizkid his first-ever Grammy and a couple of other credible awards.
Wizkid ft. Drake – Come Closer
On this one, Wizzy lends Drake’s vocals a year after he appeared on his One Dance tune.
As a matter of fact, this is the song that gave Wizkid his first 100million streams on YouTube.
Wizkid ft. Chris Brown – African Bad Gyal
Also, we have Wizzy and Chris Brown who came through with this track as their second collaboration in 2017.
Exclusively, the title alone speaks of the audacity it gnashed through our headphones.
Skepta ft. Wizkid – Energy (Wizkid international collaborations)
The British-Nigerian rapper and Wizkid launched this beautiful combo in 2018. Still one of my favorite between the duo.
Also, this collabo happened after Skepta appeared on Ojuelegba remix in 2014.

Wizkid ft. Tems, Justin Bieber – Essence Remix
Their collaboration was unexpected and a surprise but a welcome development. Justin Bieber was featured on the remix of Wizkid’s 2020 groundbreaking summer bp, “Essence” which many music lovers have praised.
Wizkid ft. Wale – Drop (Wizkid International collaborations)
Here, we have this beautiful combo that would serve as their first major hit tune.
Rocking this song in clubs and parties was the deal for that year. Although they didn’t shoot a music video for it and we still don’t know why.
Shabba ft. Chris Brown, Trey Songz, French Montana
For the first time in 2016, Wizzy premiered a track with Chris Brown, French Montana, and Trey Songz.
Shabba did wonders to our clubs and stereos.
Smile ft. H.E.R (Wizkid International collaborations)
This is one of the hottest grooves off Starboy’s Made In Lagos album. Respectively, a good number of Wizkid’s fans appreciate this song for the kind of vibe he put in it.
Basically, it appreciates life and oneself, not forgetting one’s family!
Akon ft. Wizkid – Escape
Finally, there is Akon and Wizzy on a sound. The legendary Akon released this magic in 2020 and is still one of the hottest international collaborations Wizkid has done.
