Announcing the release of his third studio album, Davido wrote on Instagram;
“I won’t keep you any longer. This year we’ve been through crazy times. Real crazy times. And through it all, we’ve all had to look inwards to find our unique hopes of better times ahead. I found a few in human form and creative form. I’m so glad I can finally share them with you. I present to you ‘A Better Time’”
The 27-year-old had no plans to release an album in 2020; however, he found himself with more free time when the pandemic happened and forced people to stay indoors. With the help of producers working from his home in Nigeria, they managed to work on a dozen of songs; 17 appear on “A Better Time.”
“I just kept on recording. I had nothing else to do,” Davido said during a previous interview.
