Davido’s “A Better Time” Album Debuts On Billboard 200
Speaking about “A Better Time,” Davido said in spite of the happenings of 2020, he found hope of a better time:
“I won’t keep you any longer. This year we’ve been through crazy times. Real crazy times. And through it all, we’ve all had to look inwards to find our unique hopes of better times ahead. I found a few. In human form and creative form. I’m so glad I can finally share them with you. I present to you ‘A Better Time’”
Davido recorded the album after his tour was cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“During A Good Time, I was in America most of the time talking to my producers over email and WhatsApp, but for A Better Time I was in Nigeria, it was during the pandemic [COVID-19] I was on tour in America before but when it hit I had to cancel the whole tour and move back to Naija. There was nothing we could do [no clubs, no shows] so we stayed home and made music. For this new album, we call it a masterpiece because we really took our time with it,” he told us, The Guardian Life.
Davido is no stranger to the Billboard charts. On the Top Thriller Global chart, Davido has had four entries. “FEM” off “A Better Time” peaked at number 3 on September 26 this year and spent seven weeks on the chart.
