Kanye West is no stranger to throwing social media tantrums against people he hates. Ye recently dropped a series of posts on his official Instagram account aimed at Daniel Cherry III, who’s Adidas’ Senior Vice President/General Manager. Amid his rant, he also revealed his pick for the best song in the history of music to date.
The Chicago rap legend took a break from his criticism of Adidas management to lavish praise on WizKid and Tems’ “Essence.” He included a note next to a screenshot of him using Apple Music to play the song.

Wizkid and Tems both retweeted Kanye’s Instagram Stories post. It also had endorsements from Tech N9ne, Naomi Campbell, and producer Digital Nas. Campbell wrote, “YES !!!! THANK YOU AT @kanyewest @wizkidayo @tems.”
Tech also left a comment, “Thank you for this energy! Felt great!” The fourth song from WizKid’s Made In Lagos album to be released, “Essence” went on to become a worldwide hit. The seductive collaboration made its American debut on the Billboard Hot 100 at position No. 9, becoming the first Nigerian song in history to do so. You may check out the video and Ye’s post below.
