My Last Album, A Good Time, Just Did A Billion Streams,The First African Album To Ever Do That - Davido

David Adedeji Adeleke, who’s also known as Davido, was at the studio in Los Angeles, a day before he was due to submit his latest album A Better Time.

During a Zoom call in with W magazine, Davido reveals he changed his album three times because he had been recording too much. Each time he thought he’d reached the final version, he’d experience some wave of emotion that moved him stress, pressure, elation, pride and he’d go into the studio and record based on whatever he’d felt. The pandemic brought on a rush of thoughts and feelings that left Davido weaving in and out of the studio.

Once he thought he was done, he’d show the album to a friend, who would insist he couldn’t take a certain song off. He’d rework it and give his sister a glimpse, who cajoled him to put a song back on that she loved. Amid all these, Davido had a goal in mind. “My last album, A Good Time, just did a billion streams,The first African album to ever do that. I have to beat myself.” he said. “It’s a lot,” he admits. “There’s a lot of pressure, and I go through a lot. I handle a lot.”

The music, he says, gets him through tough times and he noted that he engages in the unorthodox practice of listening to his own music. “It’s good being in competition with yourself, because ain’t nobody in the competition with me. No cap. I have to keep being myself, keep doing it every time. Every time we achieve something, we’re happy, but my team be like, ‘You got to do it again, boy.’”

On A Better Time, Davido has racked up a roster of features from the likes of Nas on the Hit-Boy track Birthday Cake, which feels distinctly like an R&B song from the early Aughts; Young Thug, and Nicki Minaj, who sings and raps in the fashion of her alter ego Martha Zolanski on Holy Ground. Davido sealed Minaj’s involvement in the album via DM. “Nothing was really planned on this album,” he says, noting that “Nicki be charging people $500,000 for verses. And she did it for me for free.” he says.
