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.
