Wizkid’s summer song “Essence” which features Tems, has become the “most Shazamed” song in the United States.
“Essence” which was released off Wizkid’s fourth studio album, “Made in Lagos album”, has since become a hit after it appeared on global music charts across the globe. The song also gained international recognition across the globe shortly after Justin Bieber featured on the remix of the track which appears in the deluxe edition of the MIL album.
