#BumpThis: Larry Gaaga & Davido’s “Work (Living In Bondage)”

October 22, 2019

There’s so much new music being released that it’s hard for even the most loyal fans to wade through the trash to find the gems. That’s why we’ve created #BumpThis – a Friday series that features new songs, by and featuring Nigerians, that you absolutely need to hear.

Larry Gaaga & Davido’s “Work (Living In Bondage)”

Larry Gaaga remains one of the most interesting figures in Nigerian music. He’s collaborated with some of the biggest artists in the game, from Wizkid to Burna Boy, and it’s still unclear how exactly he contributes to these songs he keeps releasing.

Well, if the songs continue to be as great as they are, who really cares how he does it? For his latest effort, he’s enlisted afropop juggernaut, Davido for one of his strongest singles to date, “Work”— off the soundtrack for Living In Bondage: Breaking Free.

Produced by Fresh VDM (Davido’s “Fia”), the fantastic “Work” is a sultry song that finds Davido at the top of his game. On the track, he sings about making love to a woman who has his heart. It’s easily the best Davido has sounded in a while.
