The American singer and songwriter revealed in an interview with American entertainment magazine MNE, that he wished he wrote Essence which has broken records and presently one of the best songs in the world right now.
Ne -yo said the Wizkid and Tems hit song off Made in Lagos Album can easily be played 17 times without any issues.
The American singer also revealed he met Wizkid once and he is one the few new generation acts he respects
“It’s one of those records that just makes sense. They could run it back 17 times and you ain’t gonna say nothing, you’re just gonna let it happen. I wish that I’d have thought of it first.I met him once, real quick – he wouldn’t remember. But I’m super proud of that dude for making the moves that he’s making. He’s one of the new generation that I can genuinely say I respect.”
