This week has been one for breaking YouTube records for Davido. First, he became the most viewed Nigerian artist on YouTube, and then, with his new Chris Brown-assisted single, “Blow My Mind”, he has gone further to hit a mark of 2,000,000 views in 24 hours.
With a huge influx of eyes from all over the world, it took only around 11 hours for the “Blow My Mind” music video to amass its first million views, overtaking Wizkid’s “Fever” and “Come Closer” to become the fastest Nigerian music video to cross that milestone.
As if breaking one record wasn’t enough for the day, Davido’s “Blow My Mind” went on to claim another victory, amassing a whopping 2 million views in just 24 hours, making it the Nigerian music video with the highest number of views within the first 24 hours of its release.
Since his global press run and his long-standing appearance on the Billboard charts, Davido’s fanbase has grown internationally. So, in addition to him being such a cherished name across Africa, Davido now boasts global recognition so, of course, his songs will perform a lot better.
Having Chris Brown on the track obviously helps as well. With his new album, Indigo, peaking at number one, and a meme-worthy music video featuring Drake making the rounds, there is a lot of attention on the Grammy-winner right now, so whatever he does is likely to lure viewers.
