Tiwa Savage: Seductive Nigerian super star singer/song writer Tiwa Savage in a new ‘seductive’ collaboration with pop super star Sam Smith has released “Temptation,” a track she will be featuring on her upcoming album Celia.
The song “Temptation” features bright, summer-friendly instrumentation, and the sultry Afrobeat duet centers on a steamy back-and-forth between the two leads: “If you do me nice/If you do me right/I’ma give you, everything you like.”
Through scintillating afrobeats perfectly attuned to both her and Smith’s voices, Savage weaves a tale of a passionate but forbidden love affair, before passing the mic to Smith.
Smith ups the ante on their verse: “My whole body leaner closer to you lately/Even though I know it’s wrong/I just give into/The shape of your body, replays in my mind/The sound of your promises, echo in me deep inside/Crave your attention, it complements my pride.”
The track was written by Savage and Smith along with Fireboy DML, produced by London and recorded in Lagos, Nigeria.VIPRE Antivirus – Download Now!
“Temptation” is the latest single from Savage’s fourth studio album Celia, due out this Friday, August 28th.
Savage sang background vocals on the track “Èkó” from Coldplay’s latest album Everyday Life, released last November, as well as sang and co-wrote “Keys to the Kingdom” on Beyoncé’s Lion King companion work “The Gift” and its visual album “Black Is King”.
Smith recently collaborated with another Nigerian artist, Burna Boy, on the song “My Oasis.” Smith was originally set to release their new album “To Die For” this year, but the release date was postponed due to Covid-19, with plans to rename the album due to the current climate.
