Afrobeat’s superstar Davido has released his highly anticipated third studio album titled A Better Time. The 17-track album features an array of international artists such as Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Young Thug, Nas, Lil Baby, Hitboy, Sauti Sol, Mugeez and Sho Madjozi. Nigerian stars on the project include Tiwa Savage, Mayorkun, C Kay and Bella Shmurda.
Talking about the album in an earlier sit-down with Complex, he revealed that he didn’t plan on recording an album in 2020. The original plan was for a world tour, but unfortunately, the COVID 19 pandemic had other plans for him.
“The pandemic had a lot to do with it because I was on tour, which I had to stop — If I was on tour, I’m not sure I would’ve had time to really record but being in Lagos, at home, I was recording and recording so many songs, and it ended up being really good. It took about two or three months, but when I first started recording it, I had no plan, I just wanted to have fun with it.”
“I won’t keep you any longer,” Davido wrote in an Instagram with the track list. “This year we’ve been through crazy times. Real crazy times. And through it all, we’ve all had to look inwards to find our unique hopes of better times ahead. I found a few in human form and creative form. I’m so glad I can finally share them with you. I present to you A Better Time.”
