Nigerian artist David Adeleke, popularly known as « Davido », shook the web on Saturday evening, March 13, 2021, when he posted a video of himself with Canadian artist Drake. The Afrobeat king is said to be preparing a featuring with American rapper Drake.
Currently in the US where he was able to participate in the latest « A Prince in New York 2 », Davido is thus following in the footsteps of his rival Wizkid, who managed to snatch a featuring with Canadian superstar Drake with the track « Come Closer », released 3 years ago, which allowed him to access the American music market. The Nigerian artist is reportedly preparing a featuring with Drake.
Drake’s next album, « Certified Lover Boy », should be released this spring. This is what Akademiks said a few weeks ago before Drake unveiled ‘Scary Hours 2’. The public is waiting for more precision with his statement, especially since there’s always a chance it could be pushed back. « CLB » will likely produce several hit records that will last the rest of the year, but it could also produce a hit record to define the summer of 2021.
It seems that this record could be a collaboration between Davido and Drake. The Nigerian star took to Instagram, where he shared a video of himself and Drake lounging. It’s unclear if the video was taken on Friday or some other time, but both artists seemed pretty excited to be in each other’s presence. Davido even got Drake on the ‘E Choke’ wave.
Drake is no stranger to the Afrobeats genre. He has certainly become close to several personalities in the scene in the past. There were rumours that a collaboration with ‘Tekno’ was in the works, although it never materialised. And of course, his 2016 single ‘One Dance’ with WizKid and Kyla became one of his biggest singles, and arguably, brought a wider Western audience into the Afrobeats world.
