You Need to Listen to Davido & A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie's New Song 'Way Too Fly'

This A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Davido collaboration will bring the summer to your earbuds.

"Way Too Fly" is a wavy track worth giving a listen to a few times over.

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Nigerian star, Davido, make a fresh duo on this title, which features upbeat, wine-able Caribbean vibes, and catchy bars delivered with a harmonious lilt.


Of course the artwork for the song would be a plane, after recent reports that Davido acquired a private jet. "Way Too Fly" is all about being just that, and wanting to celebrate about it. To be quite honest, it's probably going to make you want to drop everything and just go on vacation.

Davido has just been announced as a nominee for "Best International Act" at the 2018 BET Awards. By the looks of his latest collaborations and musical releases, he's making no bones about trying to win that award again. His first win was back in 2014.

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie is also on his own mission to staying in the limelight. He is currently in production for his upcoming album, The International Artist, which releases this summer. If "Way Too Fly" is any indication, he may be infusing more Island sounds into his new album.

Listen to "Way Too Fly" below, now available on YouTube and iTunes.

Interview: Wavy The Creator Is Ready to See You Now

The multidisciplinary Nigerian-American artist on tapping into all her creative outlets, creating interesting things, releasing a new single and life during quarantine.

A trip canceled, plans interrupted, projects stalled. It is six months now since Wavy the Creator has had to make a stop at an undisclosed location to go into quarantine and get away from the eye of the pandemic.

The professional recording artist, photographer, writer, fashion artist, designer, and evolving creative has been spending all of this time in a house occupied by other creatives. This situation is ideal. At least for an artist like Wavy who is always in a rapid motion of creating and bringing interesting things to life. The energy around the house is robust enough to tap from and infuse into any of her numerous creative outlets. Sometimes, they also inspire trips into new creative territories. Most recently, for Wavy, are self-taught lessons on a bass guitar.

Wavy's days in this house are not without a pattern, of course. But some of the rituals and personal rules she drew up for herself, like many of us did for internal direction, at the beginning of the pandemic have been rewritten, adjusted, and sometimes ditched altogether. Some days start early and end late. Some find her at her sewing machine fixing up thrift clothes to fit her taste, a skill she picked up to earn extra cash while in college, others find her hard at work in the studio, writing or recording music.
