Yung L and Wizkid combine seamlessly to create an ambient fusion of afrobeat and dancehall on the remix of “Eve Bounce”.
Part of a group of young musicians diversifying the soundscape of Nigerian music, Yung L made a concerted effort to document his artistic growth with the release of “Juice and Zimm”, his 2020 extended play teeming with soulfully-distilled riddims and ear-worms cut in his distinct mellow patois meets neo-rock cadence that ultimately reads like a confessional.
Songs like “No Worries,” “Island Thing,” “Too Much,” and “Eve Bounce” flowed in the overarching honesty-laden trajectory of the project. Building on the momentum of “Juice and Zimm”, Yung L is putting out a remix for “Eve Bounce” featuring none other than Nigerian international pop star, Wizkid.
“Eve Bounce” remix comes to us after a fortuitous social media exchange between both musicians about making some quarantine music.
Wizkid tweeted shortly after the song was made: “That Eve Bounce Remix making me wanna be in the sun right now!”

On the remix, the glinting sounds that open the original song are thickened to allow Yung L lay a typical emotive verse over the soft thrumming beat. His ode to the muse is tinged with attraction and want, rightly explaining his desires. By the time Wizkid, who released the decade closing “Soundman Vol 1 E.P” last December, gets to splash his vocals on the song, the ambience is slowed down for a markedly refined expression of interest that allows dancehall and afrobeats to find a spot of confluence without watering down their elements.
