Davido’s Sophomore Album “A Good Time ” Is Finally Here

As promised, Davido has finally released his highly-anticipated sophomore album “A Good Time” today, November 22. This is the long-overdue follow up to his hit-packed 2012 debut album, “Omo Baba Olowo (O.B.O).” It also comes three years after his 5-track “Son Of Mercy” EP with was met with middling success despite appearances from Nasty C and Tinashe on the project. Even Davido was quick to put the project behind him as it appeared that he really didn’t have really his heart in it after all. But “A Good Time” already looks poised for commercial and cultural success. This is given its impressive roll-out, premium packaging and far-reaching lead singles.

This new album isn’t a brief one as it’s 17 tracks long with a total runtime of an hour. It also boasts big-name collaborations with Chris Brown, A Boogie With Tha Hoodie, Popcaan, Gunna, Summer Walker, Zlatan, Naira Marley, WurlD, Dremo, Yonda and frequent collaborator, Peruzzi.

Davido Unviels Appetizing Tracklist For Sophomore Album, “A Good Time”

The project we’ve all been waiting for is almost here. In less than 120 hours, we’d finally have our hands on one of the most anticipated tapes in recent years: Davido’s sophomore album, “A Good Time.” This would be the long-overdue follow up to his culturally and commercially successful debut album, “Omo Baba Olowo (OBO).” A groundbreaking album that housed hits like ‘Dami Duro‘, ‘All of You‘, ‘Ekuro‘ as well as his Naeto C-assisted debut, ‘Back When‘.

Just yesterday, the DMW boss took to his social media accounts to share the tracklist of the album scheduled for release on Friday, November 22. The tracklist pays respect to his late mother, as the tracks are listed over an illustration of Davido and his dad admiring an effigy of his late mom. Davido also promised that the album cover art would even be more elegant.

It’s been a journey to get to this point and I am so grateful to God and everyone who has contributed to my success.
This album was recorded between Lagos, Atlanta, Accra, London and Los Angeles and I had the best time of my life creating it.

To all the producers, songwriters, engineers and featured artistes I am eternally grateful to you guys for working with me.
November 22nd we let the world know why it’s “A Good Time”. LETS FUCKING GO !!!!!!” he posted on Instagram alongside the tracklist.

Davido Is An Alchemist In His Popcaan-Assisted ‘Risky’

Yesterday, Davido effortlessly pulled off what some of many greatest thinkers have failed to for centuries: turning lead to gold. When his infamous Hot 97 freestyle hit the internet earlier this year, the DMW boss was the subject of ridicule for weeks to come. Our pride, our beloved Davido was dragged shitless on the gritty Twitter streets. The might head of 30BG became a meme.

But Davido won’t just let that go. Not without a win.

In his latest single ‘Risky‘, the first single off his highly anticipated “Good Time” album, Davido crafted a beautiful hook from the disjointed and grating freestyle. Just a few hours before its release, Davido gave us a fair warning on Twitter “What you all laughed at!! You will dance to!!” and he couldn’t have been more accurate.

Produced by Speroach Beatz, ‘Risky‘ is an infectious Afropop record – with dancehall elements – that finds Davido turning a meme-worthy freestyle into a radio-ready record with an overwhelming hit-potential. Talk about turnovers. This is a come-back reminiscent of the 2005 Magic of Istanbul. It’s just a few hours old and the record is already gaining traction of the airwaves and generating rave reviews all over the internet.

Popcaan‘s contributions, however, can’t be overlooked as he also came through on the record, complementing it with a well-fitting patios-delivered verse. Check out the Top-Boy inspired cinematic video for the sizzling record above.
