'Skin Tight,' a song by Afrobeats Star Mr. Eazi has been featured in a new advert by Ciroc. The song plays in the background whilst Diddy and his clique party in an unnamed nightclub.

The DJ Juls-produced song was released in August 2015 and features Efya. It is one of the songs that catapulted Eazi to his international success.

A new career highlight, it adds to the recent achievements chalked by him: his mixtape Life Is Eazi - Accra to Lagos charted at number four on Billboard World Charts weeks ago. He also made history as the first African artiste to have his song premiered on Zane Lowe's World Record show on Beats 1 Radio.
