Hotkid reveals how Zlatan inspired the upcoming METRO release


Nigerian singer Hotkid known for his viral song Otilo (Izz Gone) who recently shared a short video of the snippet of a song for the viral trend "You look like Metro too much" has confirmed he will be releasing the full song titled METRO.

Hotkid revealed that Zlatan had played a huge role in his decision to release METRO, revealing that the Zanku crooner had reached out to him and said he wanted them to do something around the viral "You look like Metro too much" trend which has sparked reactions from fans in different parts of the world including Metro Boomin himself.

His post on social media read, "Before METRO DROPS tomorrow at midnight, I would like to take a moment to appreciate @zlatan_ibile , who is actually the driving force/motivator behind the song ‘METRO.’ I was driving to meet up with my guy when Zlatan’s call came in, and he said to me, ‘Hotkid, I would like us to do something with this Metro. How do you think it would go?’ I replied, ‘ We can come up with something nice. We just need to find the proper vibe and producer that understands the assignment, and then we’re good.’ He told me to record my part and send it to him once I’m done. I sent the email exactly at 4:20 am which he acknowledged and told me he loves it! I posted the song by 9 am. When he woke up and saw that the song was already everywhere, Zlatan said, ‘Hotkid, it would be greedy of me to say I still want to be on this song. You can drop it alone and enjoy every blessing that comes with it. We can always do a remix or a different song.’ Man, I felt chills down my spine!"
