Davido came into the year promising one thing and one thing only: domination. Early on, he reunited with Asa Asika, the manager responsible for breaking him back in 2011 and asserted a return to the moves that helped him rise to the top of the game. His early single, IF sat atop the playlists for a lengthy period until everyone could no longer bear it and in came YCee’s Juice to dislodge the single from the top of the tracks garnering the most radio play in the country. Davido now returns with his second single of the year, Fall.
On the international front, only Wizkid’s Come Closer sits ahead of efforts like Fine Lady and early contender for track of Summer 17, My Story. He has begun to earn the respect of legends organically with R Kelly creating a cover of IF that thankfully nobody has actually heard but is still essential in the narrative.
Fall is produced by Kiddominant and sees Davido loosely touch on the topic of love as he makes promises to ensure his finer half has all the things she could possibly desire. He also announces a desire to settle down and stray from the lifestyle of a player over rich instrumentals which dominantly features synths and drums. The video which was shot in Los Angeles sees Davido take us into his subconscious. Initially, he is engaged in a passive-aggressive encounter with a woman while riding around in a Rolls Royce and soon departs the car and takes to the streets before engaging with a random ballerina. He soon snaps out of it all as the song comes to an end and his desire to settle down wins.
