Master KG said he was excited to share the news that his new single features an international artist.

“I’m dropping a brand-new single with my brother Joeboy from Nigeria.

“I love his music and I’ve always thought if I get a chance, I’d like to put him on a song with me,” he said.

Master KG said the name of the song is Laleyi, which means “tonight” in the Nigerian language Yoruba.
