Davido — “Risky” ft. Popcaan

Earlier in the year, Davido got trolled when yet another hilarious clip of him attempting to freestyle went viral. Well, the afropop star is getting the last laugh, as he’s now turned that flub into a Popcaan-assisted banger, complete with a Meji Alabi-directed video.

The SperoachBeatz-produced “Risky” marks the third team-up between Davido and the Jamaican dancehall heavyweight — following “My Story” and “Dun Rich” — and, as it turns out, their chemistry on a record is still as palpable as ever.

The track, which miraculously turns the laughable freestyle into one of Davido’s greatest-ever hooks, is another killer love song from the hitmaker. He recently tweeted, “what you all laughed at, you will dance to”, and he was right.
