In February 2017, the Nigerian singer Niniola released a slippery, dazzling single titled “Maradona.” The track made its way to South Africa, where it climbed all the way to Number One on the radio chart. It was also picked up by savvy producers like the Brooklyn-based Wizkid associate DJ Tunez, who used it as a jolt of energy in a strong mix for Rinse FM released in January.

Now, DJ Snake announced and re-released Niniola’s song from his forthcoming album called “Maradona Riddim.” nodding to Jamaican music culture, where multiple performers will all record a track using the same instrumental, or “riddim.” The new song appears to be a direct follow up to another one of his songs, “Magenta Riddim,” though the two have vastly distinct sounds.
