Davido, who executive-produced A Better Time, spoke about the project during an interview with Complex several weeks ago. He explained he had no intention to record an album in 2020, as he was originally scheduled to be on tour; however, the global health crisis squashed that plan, and Davido found himself under lockdown at home with plenty of time to create.
Davido expanded on the album’s overall tone and message in a press release, explaining it was inspired by Africa’s ethos: “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.”
On this project, Davido promises more style, fun, and expression. He delivers exactly that—crooning over warm grooves and infectious melodies. With an ear for both great songwriting and captivating production as well as features with Lil Baby, Young Thug, and Nicki Minaj, Davido taps hip-hop aesthetics while proving his status as one of Afrobeats’ biggest stars.
