Davido – “How Long” ft. Tinashe
This song is a fresh breath of air, in terms of musical choices ever to have come out from someone named Davido. Couldn’t you just hear how effective this collaboration sounded? And I’m not even talking literally. Davido brought his studio-refined popesque vocals that played very nicely to the auditory canals especially when it ran into a harmonious duet with the skillful contralto of the petite-sized belle, Tinashe, who also experimented singing in the native Yoruba dialect.
Quite obvious is the fact that Davido veered a little too much off his usual style of afro-influenced sounds on ‘How Long’ which can be categorized in the genre of house music. Still, he maintains originality with his musical improvisation while adapting to this new wave. And the lyrics are not titrated unlike what we’ve known him all too well for since his career advanced these past years. The overall blend immediately relays his grasp on achieving a balance in musical chemistry with an artiste other than himself or the male folk. This can only be the affluence of his new deal signing prevalent in the song.
Rating – 3/5
