Davido's "If" Gets a Remix From R.Kelly

Davido links up with R.Kelly for a remix of his hit song "If."

DIASPORA—Davido's afrobeats banger "If" gets a remix from R&B heavyweight R.Kelly.


The seasoned singer hinted at the collaboration back in May, to which Davido responded excitedly on his Instagram with a video of him jamming to the remix in his car. "Crazyyy!!!!!!! THE LEGEND R KELLY REMIXED 'IF'," he wrote in the caption. "Whaaaaaaat!! I'm honored!! 😬 #backtobasics stay true to your culture!! THEY WILL COME!!"

The full version has arrived today and it features a lengthy, energized verse from Kelly, who follows Davido's flossy one-liners with some showy lyrics of his own, aimed at the woman he's pursuing.

"If I give you all my money, give you all my time, give you all my loving, girl would you be mine," he sings atop the song's bubbly production.

We're still not quite sure how or why this remix happened—we liked the sans R.Kelly version just fine—but here it is anyway.
