MHD’s Wizkid-assisted “Bella” already highlighted afropop’s proficiency on dancefloors around the world when it was released last year. The fanfare it enjoyed seems to have whet France’s appetite for more Nigerian songs as French singer, Dadju, features Davido, Wizkid and Burna Boy on three different songs on his new album, ‘Poison Ou Antidote’.
Burna Boy’s contribution comes on the 20th track, “Donne-moi L’accord”, a lightweight afropop bop produced by Kel P. The romantic lyrics from Burna Boy confirms the song’s romantic direction, but the smooth mix of rattling samples, horns, percussion and Dadju’s French lyrics already carried the sultry quality of romance. The 24th track, “Nous” features a verse from Davido who performs a confident set to charm a love interest. Kel P also produced the Wizkid assisted “Danger”, but this time he flexes the range of his sonic palate with the Caribbean fueled synth-pop beat he produced for the romantic number.
