Adekunle Gold & Davido — “High”

When two giants come together, it’s cause for celebration. Nigeria’s Adekunle Gold and Davido unite for “High,” which sounds like a victory lap for their respective careers. “High” follows Davido’s “ATL” single and Adekunle’s “Sinner” with Lucky Daye. Both artists have gone to great lengths to bring highlife and Afrobeats to the world since the early 2010s, with mainstream media finally tuning in at the turn of the decade.

“High” begins with the colorful percussive elements we’d hope for from such a grand collaboration. Smooth vocals and a well-timed drop into the hook take this track from standard smoker’s anthem to a swirling Afrobeats staple. For as relaxing as the single sounds, it’s a monumental entry in the genre’s canon.
