The video, directed by Davido’s close collaborator, Dammy Twitch, is the official comeback for the Nigerian superstar. The visual is the first of a series coming from his chart-topping fourth studio album, “Timeless,” and shows Davido back at his best.
It’s been a record-breaking launch for Davido and his new album, released just over a week ago. Davido’s “Timeless” broke Apple Music streaming records and delivered the second-highest Billboard charting Nigerian album in history. The release also sees huge support across playlist covers and multiple U.S. & Global OOH sites! Other highlights include the #1 Apple Music UK Album Chart and #1 Apple Music US Album Chart – the highest charting for a Nigerian artist in history.

Davido – “Timeless” album
“‘Timeless’ is a body of work that goes beyond fashion and trends. It’s an authentic body of work that remains true to my core as an artist – using my music to bring joy to my fans across the world. The songs you hear today will be just as relevant tomorrow, that’s why it’s TIMELESS.” – Davido explained
TIMELESS sees Davido bringing together the sounds that have shaped his 11-year career so far. While homing in on his Afrobeats foundations with tracks such as “Feel,” “Godfather,” and “Precision;” childhood influences of R&B and rap can be heard across “In The Garden” Ft. Morravey, “Bop” Ft. Dexta Daps, and “U (Juju)” Ft. Skepta; and with nods to Amapiano on “Unavailable” Ft. Musa Keys, and hit single “Champion Sound” Ft. Focalistic. Other features across the 17-track project include Angelique Kidjo, Asake, The Cavemen, and Logos Olori.
TIMELESS is Davido’s first studio release since his critically acclaimed 2020 project, “A Better Time.” Meanwhile, Davido has continued to deliver hit singles. 2021 saw star collaborations including his remix of Focalistic’s breakthrough Amapiano single, “Ke Star,” as well as Afrobeat anthem, “High” with Adekunle Gold. 2022 was an even more momentous year with singles “WATAWI,” “Electricity,” “Stand Strong (9+),” and Davido’s feature across the lead single from the FIFA Official World Cup Soundtrack, “Hayya Hayya (Better Together),” which he performed at the closing ceremony.
Last week Davido performed “A Timeless Night With Davido,” a series of one-off shows in New York, London, and Lagos. This intimate and special event was a chance for fans to see Davido like they never have before.
A global superstar, in 2022, Davido was handpicked by FIFA to lead their 2022 World Cup soundtrack, “Hayya Hayya (Better Together).” Career milestones have also included two sold-out shows at London’s O2 Arena, headlining AfroNation around the globe, and closing the 2022 World Cup with a performance seen by over 250 million viewers. His third studio album, 2020’s “A Better Time,” is the critically acclaimed follow-up to his 1.2 billion streaming 2019 release, “A Good Time.”
Earning 30 awards and nominations internationally including the MOBO for Best African Act, the MTV EMA for Best African Act and Best International Act, two MTV Africa Music Awards, a BET award for Best African Act and Best International Act (2018), two Nigerian Teen Choice Awards for Top Featured Artist and Choice Male Artist, Davido global impact is unmatched.
