Listen to Davido's New Album 'A Good Time'

The new album from the Nigerian superstar features Naira Marley, Zlatan, Popcaan, Summer Walker and more across 17 tracks.

Davido's much anticipated album A Good Time has finally dropped.

Trust us when we say that it's aptly named. After incredibly successful singles and collaborations, the Nigerian superstar is in top-form on this new 17-track project. Naira Marley, Zlatan, Popcaan, Chris Brown, Summer Walker, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, WurlD, Dremo, Peruzzi, and Yonda are all featured on the album.


Production across the album comes from the likes of Kiddominant, Shizzi, London On Da Track, Speroach Beatz, P2J and more.

Davido mentions: "A Good Time. It's been a long 7 years. A lot has transpired in my life since my debut album Genesis, and I, David Adeleke (aka Davido) have gone through a process of immense changes and growth. In sad times I lost close family and friends (RIP) and in my happiest times I've created lives (Imade, Hailey & David Jr). I fell in love and got engaged to my PHENOMENAL fiancé, Chioma. I've fought battles of all kinds and on all fronts: spiritual, physical, mental, emotional even political."

"A Good Time reflects on the ability to trust the timing of your life, enjoying the best moments & persevering through the worst ones. There's no time like the present and it's A Good Time to be alive, to be a PROUD AFRICAN and to fight for the freedom of one another - in unity," Davido continues.

A Good Time shows off Davido's signature sound (afrobeats, afropop and tinges of high-life) while not straying too far from him his well-known style. From uptempo tracks including "1 Milli" and "Risky" to mid-tempo tracks such as "Sweet in the Middle," "D&G," and "Green Light Riddim," the album strikes a good balance between both.

Davido also includes his past hit singles "If", "Assurance" and "Fall" on the new album. "Fall" has become the longest charting Nigerian song in Billboard history. It's video is also the most watched Nigerian music video on Youtube ever, currently . sitting at 150 million views.

We've still got this album stuck on repeat but some of our favorite tracks so far include "Get to You", "Risky", "Sweet in the Middle" and "1 Milli".

Juls Drops New Music Video for 'Soweto Blues' Featuring Busiswa and Jaz Karis

The Ghanaian-British producer heads to South Africa for the music video for the amapiano-inspired track.

Heavyweight Ghanaian-British producer Juls shares his first offering of 2020, and it does not disappoint.

The producer enlists South African music star Busiswa and London's Jaz Karis for the jazz-inflected "Soweto Blues," which also boasts elements of South Africa's dominant electronic sound, Amapiano. The slow-burner features airy vocals from Karis who features prominently on the 3-minute track, while Busiswa delivers a standout bridge in her signature high-energy tone.

"The song dubbed "Soweto Blues" is a song depicting the love, sadness and fun times that Soweto tends to offer its people," read the song's YouTube description. The video premiered earlier today on The Fader. "The energy is amazing, the people are lovely and I've found a second home — especially the vibrancy of Soweto," the producer told The Fader about his trip to Soweto for the making of the video "Jaz Karis is singing a love song, which is symbolic of my new love of Soweto and I'm honoured to have worked with Busiswa whom I have been a fan of for a long time."

Fittingly, the music video sees Juls traveling through the township, taking in its sights and energy. The video, directed by Nigel Stöckl, features striking shots of the popular area and its skilled pantsula dancers.
