In a recent interview while in training with her national team, Leah Williamson, the captain of Arsenal and England, revealed the song by Wizkid from the artist’s Grammy Award-nominated album Made in Lagos.
Leah Williamson went one step further to demonstrate her proficiency with the song by singing the words to the popular track from Biz Wiz’s fourth studio album, True Love, which also features Tay Iwar and Projectxxx.

Many were taken aback by Leah Williamson’s rendition of the song as she led the England team to the first major title victory for both the male and female teams.
Leah Williamson, a defender for Arsenal Women and captain of the Lionesses who won Euro 2022, sustained a season-ending anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury last month, eliminating her chances of leading the Lionesses at the FIFA Women’s World Cup this summer in Australia and New Zealand.
She captained England to the inaugural Finalissima trophy at Wembley, defeating Brazil on penalties to win the second trophy since Wiegman named her captain before last summer’s Euros. Less than two weeks later, she sustained the injury. Williamson’s injury was confirmed to be serious, and Arsenal announced that she will have surgery in ‘due course’.
