Davido’s 2017 hit single ‘IF’ is the top song on New York’s ‘Shazam’ chart.


Shazam is a popular music app which helps users to identify the name and title of a song.

The app also provides details such as the artist’s name and title of the particular song playing at the time.

As at Thursday, ‘IF’ was number one on Shazam’s chart above Lil Wayne’s hit ‘Uproar’, Travis Scott’s ‘Sicko Mode’ and ‘Backin It Up’ by Pardison Fontaine featuring Cardi B, among others.


This makes Davido the first Nigerian artiste to be number one on the New York Shazam chart.

In a swift reaction, an elated Davido took to his Instagram page to speak on the feat.

He wrote: “We got the most Shazam song in New York. It’s Lit.”


“My old records Just breaking, imagine what the new ones will do.”

The ‘Assurance’ singer a few months ago won best international act at the BET awards.

He was nominated for the 2018 MTV Europe Music Awards (MTV EMAs) in the best African act category.
