Last year, Skip Marley the grandson of the reggae legend Bob Marley, broke his relative silence and teamed up with one of R&B most promising star, H.E.R on ‘Slow Down’. And ever since it’s release, the song has enjoyed cultural and commercial success, recently making Skip the first Jamaican-born singer to hit the number one spot on the Billboard Adult R&B chart, do so. The song has also inspired a couple of remixes, the latest featuring two generations of Afrobeats stars, Davido and Oxlade.
Davido opens the remix with an impassioned verse detailing how a love interest is so pressed on coming over to spend the quarantine with him. But Davido isn’t in a hurry; he wants to know if she’s really down for commitments, and not just him being an itch for her to scratch.
Oxlade then comes through with a scene-stealing verse to wrap the record, fully ready for some with rousing moments with his woman. It’s so beautiful to watch how Davido and Oxlade do not compromise their style and delivery just to cater to an international audience. No doubt, they brought this record home that you could even swear you’re listening to an afrobeats record.
