It’s been a little bit more than a year since Davido released his third studio LP A Better Time, a 17-song effort that saw additional features from Nicki Minaj, Mayorkun, Chris Brown, Young Thug, Nas, Hit-Boy, Lil Baby, and more. Since then, the Nigerian star continued to deliver as a featured artist, aligning himself alongside the likes of Loski, STONEBWOY, Cheque, Zlatan, Konshens, Lil Duke, Yung Bleu, Tink, and Tion Wayne.
Last week, Davido reconnected with past collaborator Focalistic for “Champion Sound,” an amapiano-styled vibe that sees production from South African beatsmiths Caltonic and Teejay, ultimately creating a boastful, celebratory track perfect for any upbeat function:
“The way I’m feeling right now, mad over you like Runtown, tell them make them calm down, 10 years I never gon’ down, when they see me dem a frown, but when them girls see me dem a go down, shout out to the south, and Focalistic with the champion sound, champion sound…”
The accompanying clip for “Champion Sound” is no less energetic, with Davido, Focalistic, and more breaking out into some dope dance moves all over the streets of London. Many of those seen in the Dalia Dias-directed video also waste no time showing off some unique fashions throughout, whether it be in a corner shop or on the Underground.
As previously reported by REVOLT, Davido was also in the news for his charitable efforts. In celebration of his 29th birthday, the “Dami Duro” talent received a wealth of donations from fans after (jokingly) asking for assistance importing a Rolls-Royce into Lagos. He then decided to give that money — 250,000,000 naira or about $600,000 American — to various orphanages in Nigeria:
“I wish to extend my sincere gratitude to my friends, colleagues, fans, and the public for the generous expressions of love in recent days. In my usual playful manner, I requested a few days ago that my friends and colleagues send money in celebration of my birthday. The response and outcome exceeded my expectations.”
Check out Davido’s full announcement, as well as the aforementioned video for “Champion Sound,” below.
