By now it should be abundantly clear that Krept & Konan's "Freak Of The Week" is my official choice for song of the summer 2K15. Though its dancehall redux, featuring Beenie Man and Popcaan, is still in heavy rotation over here, the British duo just dropped an Afrobeat version of the Playground riddim-referencing tune. The remix features Nigerian and Ghanaian superstars Wizkid, Davido, Ice Prince, and Fuse ODG, who join Krept & Konan and Jeremih to anoint the banger with a West African flow. Stream the remix above, and check the video for the original below. Krept & Konan's outstanding debut album, The Long Way Home, is out now. Stay tuned for a cute interview with the pair, coming soon.
