We Ranked Davido’s Top Five Collaborations

July 7, 2021


Davido is without a doubt one of the most successful Nigerian artists, possibly of all time. He has the bops and career milestones to prove it and one of the hallmarks of a truly amazing artist is their ability to collaborate with another artist and give you magic. Throughout his career, Davido has done this repeatedly but these five songs where Davido collaborated with another artist (or multiple artists) are some of the very best of his career.

5. The Best featuring Mayorkun

First of all, this song was haunting me. Any and everywhere I turned to, this song was playing. For me to listen to a song that much and still love it the way I love this bop rarely happens and that’s just a testimony to how good it is.

4. Sweet In The Middle featuring Wurld, Naira Marley and Zlatan

Like everyone, I am a sucker for a good party or club banger and this is one hell of a banger. I think why I’ll put this ahead of some of Davido’s other collaborations is that while it is very much perfect for a party or a club, it also is great for some solo listening.

3. D&G ( featuring Summer Walker)

This is the song that gave us the iconic line ‘when I look into your eyes, all I see is your waist’. Whoever wrote that line needs all the songwriting awards that exist on this planet. Even though I giggle whenever I hear this line and I laugh at how loud Davido is as he shouts this at Summer Walker, I have to admit it is a crazy good song with a whole lot of replay value.

2. Know Your Worth (Khalid, Disclosure, Davido, Tems)

This song is crazy good. The fact that this song isn’t bigger or more popular than it is makes me sad because I genuinely believe that it is one of the best collaborations of 2020 and all four collaborators put their best foot forward and created a truly amazing bop.

1. Holyground ft Nicki Minaj

I frankly didn’t see a Davido and Nicki Minaj collaboration coming so when this dropped I was genuinely pleased as well as shocked. I have no idea what ‘if she was a city, she be Timbukutu’ is supposed to mean but part of the appeal of Davido is not understanding half of the lyrics and just enjoying the bop. That’s what I do and it works for me.
