Following the success of her debut album, Simi ushered a new era with her upcoming album, Omo Charlie Champagne, set to be released on her birthday.
While she has released only one single this year, Simi just teased a collaboration with Diplo, which could likely be her next single for the year. Yesterday, Diplo also shared a photo of her working in the studio, naming her a legend. With her album coming out in less than two weeks, it is possible that the collaborative track would be released later this year. This collaboration is significant for a number of reasons, not only will this be the first time a female Nigerian artist teams up with Diplo it could also broaden Simi’s already versatile range as a singer.
While Nigerians are not exactly the biggest fans of electronic music, we have certainly seen successful collaborations between Nigerian and international producers like Major Lazer. Given Diplo’s solid collaborative tracks with Burna Boy and Kizz Daniel, we are excited to hear what he and Simi will deliver.
