Watch The Video For Davido's New Track 'Pere' Featuring Young Thug & Rae Sremmurd
Davido is already responsible for two of the biggest Nigerian tracks of 2017, "Fall" and "If". So, what do you do when you want to top a track record like that? Well, you aim for a global hit by enlisting three consistent hitmakers.
For his third single of the year, the afro-trap "Pere", Davido teams up with hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd and acclaimed Atlanta rapper Young Thug. And unlike with Davido's most vocal rival, they all actually showed up for the music video.
The DJ Mustard-produced track opens up with Davido singing the catchy chorus, before flowing into Swae Lee’s smooth verse. From there, Young Thug and Slim Jxmmi change up the tone of the track with their very distinct sounds.
While each person is relatively solid on "Pere" – with Davido being the standout on his closing verse – their parts don't necessarily come together well enough for it to feel like a cohesive, or even necessary, collaboration.
With both of Davido's previous tracks we could see a pretty clear direction for his highly-anticipated sophomore album, The Baddest, but "Pere" completely throws a wrench in all that – either way we are still pretty excited.
