Although we’ve gotten the chance to hear the pair of Davido and Peruzzi on singles in the past, “Twisted” is the first official record from them and it comes with a music video to boot. For a longtime, Afropop has been obsessed with themes of romance, and “Twisted” is a template for why it’s such an efficient narrative for lightweight songs destined for dancefloors at parties and wedding ceremonies.
Over the catchy beat that the DMW in-house producer, Fresh, creates with harmonic layers of synths, percussion, marimba harmonies, rattling samples and traditional drums, Davido and Peruzzi serenade their love interests, confessing; “You Dey Give Me Joy”. There’s no complicated story arch to follow here, they both want to assure their lovers they “fucking” love them. And the Twitch directed music video mirrors this simplicity with the beach house set, showing dancers and models in the cut, while Davido and Peruzzi perform their lyrics.
