Davido and Normani Link Up with Quavo on New Track, 'Swing'

African Twitter has their thoughts on Davido's latest international collab—and they're hilarious.

Just last week we got wind that Davido will be featured on Quavo's new album, Quavo Huncho.

The anticipated LP is here and everyone (including ourselves) dug right into the song "Swing," which also features former Fifth Harmony member Normani.

"Swing" is a groovy, afrobeats-lite track that was produced by French Montana, Murda Beatz and G Koop (the instrumental gives us "Unforgettable" vibes). As Normani holds the reigns of the track with her strong voice and Davido gets the job done with his brief verse, you'll hear all three croon about swinging and being sexually open.

Take a listen below.


Reactions to "Swing" from African Twitter range from full on co-signs to disappointment. Some even point out that Davido's signatures ad-libs are what they miss the most.

Here are some of our favorite tweets on the matter.

Kayode Kasum’s Quarantine Watchlist

From 'Wives on Strike' to 'Goodwill Hunting' here's what the Nigerian filmmaker is watching while stuck at home in Lagos.

Kayode Kasum, like most filmmakers, has been stagnated by the coronavirus pandemic. The director behind the blockbuster Sugar Rush and the critically acclaimed Oga Bolaji was working on the post-production of his upcoming movies, The Fate of Alakada: Party Planner and Kambili—a collaboration between FilmOne Entertainment and Chinese Huahua Media— when the Nigerian government announced the lockdown order.

While post-production on Alakada has concluded, the stay-at-home orders have delayed work on Kambili. "Since the team cannot meet at a single point, we are moving hard drives left and right," he says to me over the phone from his home in Lagos. "It is a challenge, but the beautiful thing about a challenge is, when you make it work, it is fulfilling."

Kasum has turned to books and films for an escape from the unpleasant realities of the pandemic. "I have been reading Elnathan's books: Born on a Tuesday and Becoming Nigeria," he tells me. "I have also been reading film directing books, Directing Actors by Judith Weston." However, Kasum longs for the movies. "I miss going to the cinemas; I miss that experience," he says. "There are times during this pandemic that I'm like 'na wa o, I wish I can go to the cinema.'"

Below are five films he recommends you watch during this pandemic.
