Nigerian Afropop Star Skales Drops New Enticing Single 'This Your Body' Featuring Davido

Listen to 'This Your Body', the brand new 'amapiano-influenced' dance number from Nigeria's hitmakers Skales and DaVido.

Skales, who boasts over a decade in Nigeria's music scene, has dropped his newest offering featuring Davido "This Your Body". The upbeat dance number is reminiscent of Skales' earlier music career that propelled him into the limelight and saw him collaborating, and performing, with big league artists such as Burna Boy, Wizkid, Diplo and Major Lazor to mention a few. On this latest single, Skales pulled in Davido, known to place a golden touch on any track he features on. Davido is uncontested as one of the best artists to ever come out of Nigeria's Afrobeats movement.


Even though it starts off with a quick pace, the fun "This Your Body" single is produced with a distinct amapiano-influenced bassline. Davido steps in with ad libs, carried by his recognisable high energy and signature sound. Skales seems to have gathered up all his energy since his last 2020 release, the Healing Process EP — a poignant reflection of his painful journey to stardom. "This Your Body", on the contrary, is a lighthearted and joyful track that is sure to brighten up any bleak atmosphere.
