A platinum song “One Dance” performed by Grammy Award-winning Drake with popstar Ayo Balogun, also known as Wizkid, is trending on the popular video-based social media platform , TikTok.
The song which was listed as the 6th Greatest Song of the Decade in the UK in 2019 was released in 2016, but still found its way back onto the trending list after Drake cast it on TikTok.
However, many music lovers are excited because the part of the song by Wizkid is trending on TikTok.
Wizkid is also a co-producer and co-writer of One Dance with Kyla.
A few hours after its launch on the application, “One Dance” has now exceeded 2 billion streams on Spotify. This is the fifth song to cross this milestone.
One Dance was found to be number 1 in 15 countries including the United States. The song generates millions of dollars every year. Wizkid will be paid as a featured artist, co-writer and co-producer on the song for the rest of his life.

The Chinese-owned social media app, in which users create 15-second clips, usually set to music, was just behind WhatsApp in global downloads last year.
With one billion users of its international version, it has increasingly established itself as a way for unknown artists to score a hit – from Old Town Road by Lil Nas X to Say So by Doja Cat and Roxanne by Arizona Zervas – in the same way that in a TV commercial could boost an artist’s sales in the pre-Internet age.

A dance is all the rage on Tik tok after 5+ years of release, which is what you get if you do things organically. https://t.co/6FSXPJ0Z5G

I can not explain it. It seems unreal. With this One Dance shock, I hereby conclude that; By fighting the bitterness of Mr. Balo’s rare Grace, trying to discredit him or downplay his accomplishments out of jealousy, you end up being highly dishonored. It doesn’t matter how long it takes.

The Wizkid part is what made a dance sweet ngl …… They cut the drake verse from the dance trend. You all remember how 30BG troll wizkid pours into a dance because their MPV feeds them shekpe to forget that wizkid is magic in the studio
