Davido has recorded three songs with US rapper, Young Thug.
The singer is working towards the release of his EP this year, after signing to Sony Music in January. One of the songs on the project will include a collaboration with Young Thug, who have been linked with him over time. But the extent of their work together was not made public.
Davido has revealed that in an interview with Ebro Darden, Host of Beats 1 on Apple Radio. According to the Nigerian superstar, he recorded three songs with Young Thug in New York.
“Last year I was more of “I gotta this person on my track, I gotta get that person on my track”. He said. “Especially since that Meek Mill record, it ‘do you’, everything gonna come’.
“I remember I was trying to get in the studio with (Young) Thug, one of my boys from Atlanta hooked us up. So after a while, I was just like, let me just let it go. Then two weeks ago, I was chilling, I just get a text saying ‘Yo, where you at?’, and it’s Thug. And he’s like ‘Come to the studio’, he was like three tracks, and it was done. We did one for his stuff, and two for mine.
Davido recently signed a US distribution deal with RCA Records, a subsidiary of Sony Music.
