Davido and Lil Baby in "So Crazy"

Listen to Davido's New Single 'So Crazy' Featuring Lil Baby

The Nigerian superstar's new album, A Better Time, is due this Friday.

Davido is readying the release of his new album, A Better Time, which is coming soon on November 13.

The Nigerian star is now sharing the latest single and music video from the upcoming record in the shape of "So Crazy," featuring Atlanta's Lil Baby. The new track, which slightly leans toward ATL flows, was produced by Nick Papz and Xander. The "So Crazy" visuals—directed by David Wept—are a celebratory affair, which follows both Davido and Lil Baby to a packed pool party.

"I've known Lil Baby for quite a while, and I think it's important that I point this out: when you are collaborating on a record, you need to make sure that the relationship is good outside of music. I feel like that is when you make the best music." Davido mentions.

Davido's upcoming album A Better Time comes almost exactly a year after his last effort, A Good Time. The new record is set to feature the appearances from the likes of Nicki Minaj, Lil Baby, and Young Thug.

The 17-song album was largely recorded in Lagos during quarantine and features the previously released hit "FEM," which has since become an anthem for Nigeria's #EndSARS protests.

"I was thinking of putting out like a little quarantine playlist. But then, I was like, 'Nah, I think I want to release another body of work.' My sophomore album was called A Good Time, so, obviously, A Better Time, it's a better album," he told Rolling Stone. "I've never really had time to refocus, sit down, and record a project, because I'm always on tour. I'm always all over the place. For the first time I had the opportunity to sit down and focus with my producers and take our time on each and every song.
