Sarz Explains How He Brought Asake And Gunna Together For His Hit Single, “Happiness”

Nigerian music producer Sarz has shared the background of his collaboration on the Happiness tune with American rapper Gunna and singer Asake.

Sarz revealed in an interview with Catrise J of Billboard that he gave the record to Gunna, who praised it right away, calling it the ideal blend of hip-hop, Afrobeats, and funk pop.

Prior to the song’s release, Sarz stated that he wanted to make Happiness into a “symphony of joy that transcends borders” rather than merely a song. It goes without saying that the collaboration is a celebration of harmony, cultural diversity, and happiness as a universal language.

Edgar Esteves, who has worked with artists such as French Montana and Nicki Minaj, directed the music video for the song, which is currently accessible on all major streaming platforms. With over 3.2 million views on YouTube, the video is presently ranked 13th on the list of trending songs in the country.

With hits like Drake, Wizkid, and Kyla’s “One Dance,” which turned out to be the most streamed song on Spotify in 2016, and Lojay’s “Monalisa,” which went viral and received a Chris Brown remix in 2022, Sarz is credited with bringing the Afrobeats sound to the U.S. and U.K. charts.
