Watch DJ Neptune and Davido's New Music Video for 'Dèmo'

Listen to the latest collaboration from the Nigerian artists.

Award-winning Nigerian artist DJ Neptune has enlisted Davido for his first official single of the year, "Dèmo.'

The upbeat love song sees Davido singing enthusiastically about a woman that has caught his eye, as usual, over production from SperaochBeatz. The track doesn't stray far from typical Naija pop, but is still worth the listen, as it's a definite party-starter.

DJ Neptune released the album Greatness last year and also picked up the Best DJ Award at this year's Soundcity MVP Awards, while Davido has appeared on several singles so far this year, including the Zlatan-assisted standout "Bum Bum" and the track "Winner." The artist will be one of the many African acts performing at this year's Essence Fest in New Orleans.

Listen to "Démo below.

Update 3/12: Check out the music video for "Dèmo" below.

Rema Welcomes 2021 With New Single 'Bounce'

The Don Jazzy produced track reminds us of why the Nigerian singer-songwriter is topping charts.

Nigerian golden boy Rema took his time on deciding how to start of 2021—and we're glad he did.

The afropop hitmaker is out with his first project of the year, "Bounce", after stunning fans with word of an upcoming album, and the cooks in this kitchen have not disappointed.

Keeping it in the Mavin Records family, legendary producer Don Jazzy sprinkles his magic on the track, while undoubtedly motivating the young singer-songwriter to be his best self. And with this track being like nothing we've heard from Rema before, one could say Jazzy succeeded. "Bounce", fast-paced and fierce, is a love song dedicated to bewitchingly beautiful and blessed bottoms. The candid declaration and hip shaking beat are a force duo and we can't help but love it.

Of the single and collaboration with head honcho Don Jazzy, Rema says, "This record was inspired by the luscious and magnificent body of the African woman. Furthermore, I'm really excited about this tune because it's my first single with the legendary Don Jazzy."

Honestly, when you start the year off with a banger, you get to make songs about butts.
