WHAT IT IS: Nigerian artist Davido’s latest offering, Timeless, brings together the sounds that have shaped his 11-year career. His first studio release since the platinum-selling award-winner’s critically acclaimed 2020 project, A Better Time, the new album homes in on his Afrobeats foundations on tracks like “FEEL,” “GODFATHER” and “PRECISION.” A Better Time broke several global records for an African artist, streaming over 133m in its first week, earning the most first-day streams ever for an African album on Apple Music and debuting at #2 the World Music chart. It also produced three top charting singles, including TikTok smash “UNAVAILABLE,” which debuted at #8 on the Afrobeats chart, followed by “OVER DEM” (#10) and “FEEL” (#11).
