Here’s a breakdown of Davido’s new song “Stand Strong,” which features The Samples Choir.
Davido is back and better than ever, following his Champion sound with a brand new single titled “Stand Strong”, which enlists the help of Kanye West’s Sunday Choir, The Samples Choir.
“Stand Strong” is his first single from his upcoming fifth studio album, and he announced its release on Instagram on Wednesday with a clip from the music video.
On May 11, artiste manager and AnR executive, Bankulli, talked on Twitter about what happened before the song was recorded. “After 3 canceled flights on the same day, somehow we showed up in LA with Jasonwhiteco and The Samples family on ground waiting-I believed at some point the spirit of God showed up at that session. “Standstrong is a beautiful song by Davido.”
Here’s an explanation of the meaning behind Davido’s new track “Stand Strong” in honor of the release of his first official single in 2022.
“Baba told me keep your head up, high
Even though your body full of bite bite from all dem canines”
In this line, the king of Afro-pop is making reference to Exodus 23:22 and Psalm 37:1-6.
“Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong; 2 for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away. 3 Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. 4 Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 5 Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: 6 He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.”
“Steady moving, am just living life
And so many people in my business, so many chookin eyes”
Davido is one of the most loved and hated celebrities in Nigeria, definitely because he is from a wealthy family. The 29-year old is saying that despite what the enemies are doing, he will continue to enjoy life to the fullest.
“My fears are easier to face now, in the front of my haters
Steady chasing my paper
Sipping Martel with no
My steps are guided by Jehovah
And 44 looking over
Dem no fit stop us, I know that
And every show is to shutdown”
With God’s assurance and the spirit of his late friend Obama DMW, he’s saying there’s nothing the enemies will do to him any more. He will continue to make money from endorsements and celebrate his win with a glass of Martel’s refreshing cognac cocktail as an ambassador.
“Coz I stand Strong, O.B.O no go minus
O.B.O Elemi 9+
Big fish flow like the Ocean ooh
Omo I stand Strong
30BG dey my backup oh
O.B.O Elemi 9+
Can’t deny my devotion, oh”
In this chorus, Davido gave multiple reasons why he can’t fall down even if the enemies want to try.
- Davido is a strong man who you can’t reduce.
- Davido is well known all over the globe. He’s a big fish, and while the world is an ocean, he makes moves.
- Davido has one of the biggest fanbases in Africa. He says no matter how you try, his army is behind him.
- Based on who Davido is, he likes playing with numbers, starting with running things with Ronaldo and Beckham at 7 and moving to 9+. No matter what, you can’t blacklist his religion.
