Deejay popcaan has joined forces with high-riding Afrobeat artiste Davido on a new single titled Risky.

The receintly released track is one of the early tracks from Davido's upcoming album A Good Time, which is set to drop on November 22.

The new single sees the Nigerian heavyweight, known for Afrobeat hits including If and Fall, connecting on a sound that is being described as Afrofusion-meets-dancehall.

Risky was produced by beat maker Speroach Beatz.

This is not the first time Popcaan is teaming with an international artiste. Chargie, the 2017 hit, saw the local act teaming with Canadian rapper Drake. This track is referenced in this new duet with Davido. Popcaan has also worked with Jamie xx, Pusha T, Giggs, Matoma, Wale, and Gorillaz.

The track comes accompanied by a music video shot in London and directed by Meji Alabi. The video appears to be a nod to the popular Netflix series Top Boy, as it takes place in a similar East London housing estate setting, where an undercover informant is watching their every move.

Davido's A Good Time is set to include other singles like F all, Assurance, and Blow My Mind. The new album is set to be released on Davido Worldwide Entertainment, Sony UK, and RCA labels.

Born Andrae Sutherland, Popcaan was first introduced to the music scene as a member of Vybz Kartel's Gaza Music Empire. In 2010, he released his breakthrough international hit Clarks with Kartel, an ode to the popular shoe brand. His other popular tracks include Only Man She Want, Everything Nice, Ova Dweet, El Chapo, and Family.
