‘Sweat’ is a remix to ‘LL Cool J’s classic 1996 single ‘Doin’ It’ featuring ‘LeShaun’. Wizkid retains the groovy tempo with an Afrobeats/Island twist.
The Starboy drops his sexy version of this classic party tune in just 2:57mins. Smartly, he doesn’t touch the original, he just lays his own freestyle over the beat with a bit of yoruba coming through.
“Doin It” is the second single from LL Cool J’s sixth album, Mr. Smith, and was released on February 1996 for Def Jam Recordings. Based on a sample of Grace Jones’ “My Jamaican Guy”, it also featured LeShaun (who previously released a song with the same sample and theme in 1993 titled “Wild Thang”), production from Rashad “Ringo” Smith and LL Cool J.
