One year after the fact, and 112 million streams later, Davido’s “Fall” has been re-released as a remix, and not through his own admission. Nope, that honor belongs to a legendary Brooklyn rapper with a predilection towards dialect.
Busta Rhymes had been quite active on social media building hyping up the “Fall” remix, which includes himself, alongside Davido and his artist Prayah, signed to his DMW imprint under Sony Music. The label is also home to rising Afrobeats stars like Dremo and Mayorkun, who put pen to paper well before Prayah was thrust into his current push up the ranks.
News of the Busta Rhymes-assisted “Fall” remix is a welcome break to fans who’ve been enduring the long wait for his Dr. Dre-produced LP, which is apparently nearing completion, and wholly-produced by the one Dr. Dre. The “Fall” remix was submitted to Prayah’s YouTube channel in the beginning stages of his deployment.
Davido is fast becoming a household in America, in the most serendipitous circumstances. His father, a wealthy Nigerian business magnate, had Davido his spend the summers of his childhood in Atlanta, where the Afrobeats star was indeed born, before settling back in his native country.
Money fall on you
Banana fall on you
Prada fall on you oh
‘Cause, I’m in love with you.
