Davido’s debut on the Billboard Hot 100 is the latest in a string of achievements for him, having recently earned his first Grammy nominations and performed a sold-out show at the O2 Arena for the third time.

“Sensational” is his second collaboration with Chris Brown, having featured the American RnB star on his 2019 song “Blow my Mind”

And there may be more to come as he had previously named the 34-year-old as the American artist he’d with whom he’d love to make a joint album

“If I were to create a collab album with anyone from the United States, it would definitely be Chris,” he said while appearing on the Bootleg Kev podcast in May 2023.

“Chris and I have a collection of ten unreleased songs. We have indeed discussed the possibility of creating an album together.”
