Davido – “How Long” ft. Tinashe … My Thoughts

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 like 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. While it appeared that Davido had exhausted the limits to his unidirectional take on music, this Sony deal signing has put him in light of better elements to which we are yet to fully see and experience him. So in much as we want to tout the efforts (or isit attempts now) at evolving our star brand to an audience of broader horizon, the bitter truth remains that the core of his fans do not respond well to musical choices such as this and thus would suffer some profiling if this lets up any longer than tolerated. Notwithstanding, we refused to stay blinded to the fact that it’s some really good fine stuff... no need to hate!

Rating – 3/5

Please guys relax all the F word thingy is so childish abeg,the dude is doin his job which I tink isn’t so bad, am not saying the song is bad buh seriously this is not davido’s best work so wats the fuzz abt, songs like this in naija dont last and we all know it. 3/5 rating is great for the song

    • You are a bigger fool bro!

  18. Good music……

  19. Now I get the point of the critics. Its not that some of you are being honest, its just that some of you are wizkid fans.
    Is their any of wizkid’s song this year better than Gbagbe Oshi,Return,Maga To Mugu,Coolest Kid In Africa and this How Long?

    As for Jim, he is finished.

  20. My thoughts exactly, but not limited to this particular song. Listen to Maga To Mugu (featuring Simi). He tried to pull off an “Adekunle Gold” on that one but it just didn’t work. And the production was not fitting for the song (sorry Kiddominat but its the truth).

    • Na u know… some Nigerians with stupid mentality smh

  21. haters everywhere , mehn.. damn. every song on that ep is dope for Christ sake

  22. All u fuckers hating davido and his new song with tinashe,ur all gona hate good things in life,dts it

  23. So Mr. David Adeleke chose to lifts segments of my song into his. Am disappointed. You will hear from my legal team.

    • Bros Calm Down Now, ahan

    • Bros, chill na, ahan

    • Who u epp?

    • alaye go pursue been bigger tinz if u want fame or attention …ur song and u still Dey here …big fool

  24. The song no make since. No vocal voice. O. B. O no get am

  25. The video is nice.. but the song is just not good enough

  26. Few mins into the song I was lost. . But then again , just like Jim said he’s trying to break new grounds . Only time will tell . The rating is fair tbh

  27. The song isn’t nice yet is on america’s top 40 album list,making number me,is a 4/5

  28. Fuck that shiiiiiiii davido did justice to that song and video……..if it sound poor in your ears then its phone 5/5 @terrrel

  29. I can see this Jim of a guy is furstrated. I knw u r an artiste and i have one of ur songs in my fone called ”HIM”. But i will say i’m highly disappointed in u bcus i wonder how u r going to make it in life if u hate on someone’s success. This song u r rating 3/5 is one of d best song i’ve heard this year so i wonder how an upcoming art lyk u will ever grow to be recognised among d best arts in dis country. U knw wat am going to delete dat ur song away frm my fone bcus fools lyk u dont deserve my support

  30. Not everysong is meant to be so great and sound so good … Davido did justice to the beat the video is also nice … I just knw he will do better next time he always does.

  31. Why is it dat some people know d truth but out of hatred dey tell lies… All of u saying bullshit, inside u, u know d song is dope and best for moment.. And u don’t tink any Nigeria song can beat dis good work of David…. Embrace people so people can Embrace u too… Thanks

  32. baddest u are the best. and remain the best, i believe in ur music, afro fussion

  33. @Jim u are in line , sincere assessment and rating @Davido is just confused rite now. blending naija choice of music wit dt of d international market choice is one big work bro. may God continue to bless u regardless, e no easy

  34. dis song is definetly nt up 2expectation, davido shud stop singing trash,one of d worst song dis yr, so i wil rate it 2/5. AM NT A H8ER IS JST D 100% FACT. LYK IT OR LEAVE IT

    • Davido singing trash? Omo whoever you are you seem to be the dumbest on earth. How could you say such? Them suppose carry kane flog you

  35. d song is extra dope……davido as don it two times by convicing meek mill back up with yoruba in d video… nd nw tinashe. u all just hating.. good job

  47. nice song, lovely video and collaboration. keep the good work. Nigerians are the greatest critics in the world and that is why they don’t move far in life.

  48. Not good

  49. We need to forget the trashing and let’s appreciate this our musicians, I’m sure many years ago nobody ever thought our naija artist dem would collaborate with with int’ll stars but today they are doing more than we ever imagined, whether good or bad let’s appreciate cuz they’re really representing and they worked their asses off to get to this level they are. Love davido love wizkid and I love my naija musicians. God bless

  50. dnt agree davido should have gone last and give us that distinct nigerian feeling while tinashe should have given us that 2 on or player vibe

  51. Obo dope music, gbayi

  52. This is so nice david keep it up.. Fuck haters

  53. Nigeria people no dey like cool song.. dey like when the artist dey repeat and shout one line 20 times…. no need to ask them.. na mostly party jams dey win their hearts

  54. It’s so sad that some dumb-ass don’t even understand the true definition of music. this is a dope jam and i’m giving it 5/5 for the dynamism.

  55. one luv

  56. I luv dis song so much… Davido keep it up
