Wizkid and Future’s “Everytime” is more than just an international feature

It's breezy and wine friendly Afropop

Despite their seemingly different audiences—Future serving Atlanta’s Trap scene and Wizkid dominating dancefloors—both artists occupy lofty perches in the pop culture landscapes and had a tour rendezvous through August that hinted at the release of “Everytime.” 


SFTOS has had enough time to marinate, allowing the boldest sentiments of the album to seep into all the cracks of our subconscious. His romantic themes are as convincing as his melodic, introspective, often set to stripped back, downbeat rhythms that have helped him become one of the defining Afropop artists of our time. His latest release, “Everytime” embraces pop music’s frenetic tendency to overdo anything good as he provides yet another club inclined love song. Shizzi produces the beat set at a gentle, mid-tempo pace, with the same three chord sequence repeating all the way through.
