Watch Angel's New Video For 'Blessings' Remix Featuring Davido & French Montana

Video Premiere: Follow buzzing UK artist Angel as he's joined by Davido & French Montana for a night at the bowling lanes.

Buzzing UK-based artist Angel has been making waves with the remix to his single "Blessings," which features the added star power of Davido and French Montana.

"Blessings," which is built on addictive beat work and smooth guitar melodies, gets new life as the Nigerian star and NY rapper inject it with their own distinct musical flavors. Davido kicks things off in this new remix with his solid melodies, while French brings it home halfway through the remix.

"I feel like French and Davido bring the track to an even wider audience," Angel tells OkayAfrica. "We all come from different cultures, me from London, French from NY and Davido from Nigeria with the Afro beat movement. It was just so organic to blend all of these sounds together. You see the track In a new light, and now the whole world hears the track with a new perspective. The original was about appreciating the blessings and now it's about celebrating our blessings."
