  • Tiwa Savage has teamed up with Sam Smith on a new song called Temptation.
  • The afrobeat track is a sultry love song.
  • Temptation will feature of Tiwa's upcoming album, Celia.

Nigerian star Tiwa Savage has enlisted the help of popular singer Sam Smith on a new track titled, Temptation. The collab comes just one month after Sam dropped their track, My Oasis, with Burna Boy. 

A sultry love song, Temptation moves at just the right tempo to get your hips swaying.

According to Billboard, Tiwa told Apple Music's Zane Lowe she "had goosebumps" when she heard Sam on the track.

"I was like, 'Wow, this is incredible'," she told the publication. Adding: "And it just changed the whole face of the project. Do you know what I mean? Because this is really happening for afrobeat, not even just with Tiwa."

Temptation is the latest release from Tiwa's upcoming album, Celia, available from 28 August.
