Davido - Blow My Mind ft. Chris Brown

After months of teasing his fans about a collaboration with Chris Brown, Davido finally announced the release of "Blow My Mind" on July 26th. The song features the American R&B singer and popstar, Chris Brown and was produced by the one and only, Shizzi.

"Blow My Mind" is an Afrobeat love song that you may find relatable if you ever felt an intense love for someone....so much that it literally blew your mind!

Davido, also popularly known as "OBO - Omo Baba Olowo" which means "rich man's child," rose to fame in 2011 with the release of "Dami Duro."

While discussing his meteoric rise to fame in the music industry with Lanre Davies of Factory78tv studios, London in February 2012 during his first UK tour, Davido said,

"When my first video dropped, the first week I had views of 700, but when the video of Dami Duro dropped, the first week I had 120,000 views... I never knew when everything happened, I never knew maybe I would go to shows..."

He said that he never knew audience would ever be excited at hearing his name come out at a show.

Also in February 2012, during a "BN (Bella Naija) Saturday Celebrity Interview", Davido mentioned that Chris Brown is the musician he dreams of working with internationally, regardless of the difference in their music genre...Yay, dreams come true!

Davido first learned about the music industry and crafted his skills as a member of the music group KB International in America. He released "Dami Duro" about one year after he left America to start music on his own in Nigeria under the record label, HKN Music.

Since then, Davido has received worldwide recognition, nominations, and awards, and most of his singles and collaborations have been a hit. In 2012, he won the Headies Award for Next Rated - an award presented at The Headies.

(Established in 2006 by the Hip Hop World Magazine of Nigeria and originally named Hip Hop World Awards, The Headies is a music awards show that recognize outstanding achievements in the Nigerian music industry. The founder of the award, Ayo Animashaun launched HipTV in July 2007 as the award's broadcasting platform which later rose to become a music and entertainment channel currently with a target audience from over 44 African countries. The first recipient of the Headies Award for Next Rated was the Nigerian-French artist, Aṣa, in 2006.)

In 2016, he founded the Davido Music Worldwide (DMW) record label. In the same year, he signed a record deal with Sony Music and with Sony's RCA Records.

Born by Nigerian parents in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in Lagos, Nigeria, David Adedeji Adeleke is currently 26 years old and it is evident that much of his success stems from his resilience and conscious decision to never give up he continues to grow.

"Blow My Mind" saw a record of two million views/streams on YouTube within the first 24 hours after being uploaded and has become an international hit.

Since the song's release, many dancers on Instagram have displayed their own moves to the song. One of these dancers, identified by the Instagram username "s0phamish," really blew our mind at AfroVibes. Watch the dance video below.
