Listen to Davido & Meek Mill's High-Profile Collaboration 'Fans Mi'

Davido and Meek Mill drop the music video for their high-profile "afro-trap-beats" collaboration, "Fans Mi."

In March Davido announced that he was teaming with Philly's own Meek Mill for what we presume is only the beginning of a growing trend of high-profile Naija / U.S. rap and pop star collaborations.


Hitting even harder than we anticipated, the Shizzi-produced, afro-trap-beats track they recorded together, "Fans Mi," is here as of today. Also out today, the Sesan-directed video, which Davido previously described as "the biggest video of his career," sees the very recent graduate O.B.O. and the Maybach Music Group rapper engage in a series of extravagant and what very much look like illegal activities, but turn out to be prep work for pounded yam.

Stay tuned for news on Davido's sophomore album, Baddest, and watch his "Fans Mi" video featuring Meek Mill below.
