WETAYA SONG OF THE DAY: Davido – Aye
“Aye” is a song by Nigerian singer Davido. It was produced by TSpize, a record producer affiliated with Runtown. The song peaked at number 5 on MTV Base’s Official Naija Top 10 chart from March 28 through April 3, 2014, and was primarily released to celebrate Valentine’s Day. It was alleged that Davido bought “Aye” from Runtown, an artist who featured him on “Gallardo”.
A writer for Fuse.com.ng described the melody of “Aye” as “charismatic” and said it “provides a sing along vibe that catches the lips of both old and young as they hold on to their head gear or do the Bata dance while singing happily”. David Drake of Pitchfork opined that “Aye” is “perhaps the sweetest song of devotion yet written”. Drake also said its “thicket of rhythms eventually taking shape as clean, piercing guitar lines cut through to provide a melodic counterpoint.”
