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".

Darkovibes & Davido Share the Addictive New Single 'Je M'appelle'

Ghana and Nigeria combine in this new party anthem.

Ghana's Darkovibes comes through with a big time collaboration with Nigerian superstar Davido in "Je M'appelle."

The new song, which was produced by Ghana's MOG Beatz, is built on an infectious, high-pitched synth beat, which both Darkovibes and Davido trade verses over before going into the French chorus.

"Je M'appelle" is also accompanied by a new music video, directed by Jay Vertex, which solidifies the party energy of the tune and sees both Darkovibes and Davido donning traditional Ghanaian attire.

Darkovibes is coming off a busy 2020, having released two projects, the acclaimed Kpanlogo album and The Cornerstone EP.

Get into Darkovibes' "Je M'appelle" below. We can see this one playing at parties for the rest of the year.
