Currently, Tion Wayne is still sailing off the release of his and Russ Millions explosive single “Body” — a track that has since topped the charts and earned the duo a Platinum plaque. Humorously enough, the song’s success caused Tion to rethink his apparent plan to return to the hip hop and Afrobeats vibes that he was previously known for, something he revealed on social media:
“I said no more drill but number 1 ? You lot took it to far [laugh emoji]. Last one Solo!!! I ain’t done that yet!”
“Wow, man down, man down, you ain’t really bad, pipe down, pipe down, I don’t give a fuck right now, right now, why everybody judge like Simon Cowell? Pull up on my IG, undercover, but you don’t like me, suck your mother, if a nigga try me, won’t recover, if you don’t like me...”
The accompanying visual for “Wow” presumably sees Tion Wayne taking some inspiration from a recent Ghetts drop, as he can be seen riding on top of a literal tank through his N9 stomping grounds, flanked by an army of individuals donning masks, hoodies, and other gear from Tion’s own NINE merch line.
“Body” follows other well-received singles and collaborations from Tion, including “4AM” with Manny Norté, 6LACK, and Rema, “I Dunno” with Dutchavelli and Stormzy, and “Deluded” with Mist. The same timeframe has also saw Tion contributing to other hit songs by the likes of Tinie (Tempah), M24, KSI, B Young, and Rudimental. His last official body of work was the third installment of his popular (T) Wayne’s World series, which saw 13 cuts and assists from Swarmz, One Acen, JAY1, Ebenezer, and more.
