Listen to Teyana Taylor and Davido's New Single 'Killa'

Davido joins Teyana Taylor on the laid-back track titled 'Killa' which features on her latest project 'The Album'.

Davido and Teyana Taylor have recently dropped their joint track titled "Killa". The smooth and mellow number features on Taylor's much-anticipated project The Album which dropped today on Juneteenth—the unofficial holiday in the US celebrating the end of slavery.

"Killa" showcases Taylor's signature sound while borrowing rhythmic elements from Afrobeats in honour of Nigerian music royalty, Davido. It's a laid-back number that describes a badass woman who is unafraid to carve out her own path without being deterred by others. Taylor and Davido's synergy is effortless and makes for some really easy listening.

Taylor is no stranger to collaborating with African talents. Just last year, she jumped on the "Gimme Love (Remix)" with British-Nigerian singer Seyi Shay.

Davido on the other hand, has stayed true to his 2018 call to international artists to keep the collaborations with African artists streaming in. Following the success of his album A Good Time last year, and a great first-leg of his North American tour pre-COVID-19 this year, the artist continues to churn out hit after hit. Last month, Davido, Peruzzi, Dremo and The Flowolf dropped the energetic music video to "Mafa Mafa". Shortly after that, Davido's hit record "Fall" was certified Gold in America three years after its release.
