Nigerian music has come a long way from the time when songs on the radio were shameless copies of American pop songs. Now we have a more defined sound that’s mainstream enough to catch the fancy of American pop music tastemakers like Chris Brown who features on Davido’s latest release, “Blow My Mind”.
With cultural diversity being the current trend, Davido’s melodic sound, closing the gap between the rituals of church and the freefall of the dancefloor, is riveting and compelling as he rides the mid-tempo beat Shizzi produces to perform a love song that sure to enjoy the breezy lightweight ambience of summer parties. The mix of sparse electronic synth harmonies, percussions, traditional drum riffs and shakes, however, leaves room for an R&B fueled second verse from Chris Brown, joining Davido to spill his heartfelt emotions for a lover.
