DaVido – A BETTER TIME

Nigerian Afropop sensation Davido has officially released his eagerly anticipated third studio album A BETTER TIME out now via Davido Worldwide Entertainment/ Sony Music U.K. /RCA Records. The 17-track album is available on all DSPs and streaming services – LISTEN HERE.

A BETTER TIME sees the two-time MTV European Music Award winner call for unity at a time of civil unrest across Nigeria and other African nations as he pulls together sounds from all corners of his beloved continent, Africa. A BETTER TIME features African talent from across Nigeria (Tiwa Savage, Mayorkun, Bella Shmurda & C Kay) Ghana (Mugeez), Kenya (Sauti Sol) and South Africa (Sho Madjozi). Davido also reconnects with frequent collaborators Fresh VDM, Peruzzi and Speroach Beatz. Across the waters in the United States, Davido connects with a stellar line up of notable features. On “Birthday Cake” he collaborates with rap legend Nas and Grammy Award winning producer Hit-Boy. “Shopping Spree” sees Davido reunite once again with Chris Brown and Young Thug. Additional appearances from Atlanta’s finest Lil Baby on So Crazy and pop superstar Nicki Minaj.

The album’s first single FEM (produced by Napji) earned widespread praise and shot straight to the No.1 spot in the Apple Music charts in over 8 countries including Nigeria, where it held the top position for 4 weeks. “FEM” became the unofficial protest song embraced by the #ENDSARS movement against police brutality in Nigeria. The track has since enjoyed over 40 million streams globally, viewed over 11m times on YouTube and reached #19 on US iTunes chart.

“One thing about Africans – rich or poor, happy or sad, is that no matter what the situation going on in your country, you always find a reason to smile and just be happy. We (African people) always like to celebrate and A BETTER TIME is that outlet to be free, be happy and hopeful for a better future.” Davido commented.

A BETTER TIME is executive-produced by Davido and his son Ifeanyi Adeleke and follows the highly praised 2019 sophomore album A Good Time which has achieved over 1.2 billion streams to date globally.

About Davido:

Born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in Nigeria, 27-year-old Davido (real name David Adedeji Adeleke) has been a champion for the continent of Africa. He chose to chase his music dreams and whilst doing so earned over 30 awards including a MOBO for Best African Act, MTV EMA for Best International Act, three MTV Africa Music Awards, two BET Awards and two Nigerian Teen Choice Awards for “Top Featured Artist” and “Choice Male Artist.” 

With an unmatched work rate, Davido has delivered back-to-back hits since his musical debut in 2011. Breaking out with successive singles “Back When,” “Dami Duro,” “Gobe,” “Aye” and “Skelewu,” the latter would enjoy attention from Major Lazer and Wiwek who went on to remix the single. His musical elevation would see further global collaborations with Chris Brown, Pop Smoke, Summer Walker, Young Thug, Mayorkun and more. Davido kick-started last year with a sold-out date at London’s prestigious O2 Arena, becoming the first solo African artist to do this. He created waves across America with his smash hit single Fall which is certified gold in the US and in Canada.

With a discography attesting to over a billion global streams and over a billion video views, the Afrobeats forerunner has very much established himself as a force to be reckoned with.
