L.A.X's new single, "Nobody," featuring Wizkid, is an undeniably smooth, deep-grooving afropop track with a moody twist. Over a creeping beat by fellow Nigerian producer Altims, the pair trades catchy flows and layered melodies — a rare new appearance from Wizkid this year. "It's been a while since I worked with Wiz and this is one of the records we made when we got back into the studio together," says L.A.X. "Wizkid fell in love with it straight away when I played it to him, as it was different from your regular afrobeats — this has different elements of r&b, trap, and dancehalI to it.”
Adds Wizkid: "This record is such a vibe and teaming up with a brother of mine who I have shared successes with in the past, made it even more special. This is the beginning of another chapter of our working relationship and friendship, and this incredible song is just the first result of it all."
