DaBaby excels on Afrobeats-produced “Showing Off Her Body” assisted by Davido
DaBaby makes his debut performance on Afrobeats. He is assisted by Davido on the track titled “Showing Off Her Body”.
The ‘Afrobeats to the world’ mantra is in full effect, overtaking one geopolitical zone at a time, so much it made the U.S rapper DaBaby align with Nigerian superstar Davido on the Shizzy Afrobeats-produced new single, Showing Off Her Body.
As the song’s title insinuates—Showing Off Her Body, DaBaby tries to hit at a very attractive lady whose figure is a sight to behold. But on getting the chance to talk with this beautiful endowed lady, he finds out she is taken as indicated by the ring on her finger, hence a little hiccup on his quest for a partner but that does not last long as he asks the lady to put him, “a player” on “on your friends”. Why? “So I could show her I’m the man or somehtin’”. Success found DaBaby in his quest for a partner as expressed by the pleasurable experience they both share, “She a good girl and she get it from her mommy (Mommy) /. . . / I love the way she bribe me”, he happily sings on the hook.
Davido validates DaBaby’s claims on the hook in his verse, appraising his partner for her body-twirling skills in the bedroom, even accrediting her as the inspiration for his verse. “Girl, gwan, gwan, bribe me all night long (Ooh, woah, woah, woah) / That bum made me right this song (Ooh, woah, woah, woah)”. Davido also subtly referenced finding comfort with this lady, “Why the f–k is your ex calling? Tryna disappear / I been chilling, my ex calling, tryna reappear”.
DaBaby excellently delivers his rap verse on Showing Off Her Body, flowing seamlessly on the mid-tempo instrumentals co-produced by Arieenati and Uzoharbour.
