In an interview just before he sold out the O2 London Arena, Davido had stated,

''No, I have always wondered why is it 'Fall'? out of every song, Fall is not even the song I wanted people to know before, but in America, they play it on the radio every 20 minutes and then it is just moving up quickly, The Billboard top RnB song, number 25 and it's moving up.''

The singer continues to enjoy success on the international shores with more listeners requesting for the song on US radio stations with predictions that its place on the charts may rise in the coming weeks.
