New album out March 31 – Davido thanks fans for patience, 'Timeless' love
Afrobeats superstar Davido is ready with his six studio album.
The Nigerian announced the title and release date via a video on YouTube, today, Tuesday, March 21, 2023.
The album trailer opens with the Nigerian music executive and singer-songwriter alone at night in an office busily scribbling on a paper.
The Voice Over (VO), done by Davido, speaks saying: "There's a time for everything."
"A time to grieve, and a time to heal," the father who lost his three-year-old son in 2022 continued the Ecclesiastes passage.
When the VO begins to sing, "If dem [they] want [to] turn [into] Goliath, I be [am] David for life," the scene changes. He is suddenly, running in a forest.
"Oluwa [God] dey [is on] my side," he declares as images of his younger days and recent stage performances begin to roll.
"A time to laugh, and a time to dance," he says in the trailer returning to the Biblical text. "A time to speak, and a time for silence." A clock shown struck 12 midnight.
"We all had the choice to do this in our own time," he noted as he came to a sudden halt in the forest and footage of him in the office flashed.
"But thank God I am grounded by your love, which is 'Timeless'," he wrote the album title in capitals on the A4 sheet, appreciating his fans, and sounded his famous cry: "Shekpe! Baddest!"
