Davido’s new album “Timeless” is here, and here are our expectations
On Tuesday, March 21, 2023, Davido took on his Instagram page to announce the release of his fourth studio album- Timeless, and here are our expectations for the incredible project.
Davido’s Timeless Album will be his most personal yet
In the trailer for the announcement of Davido’s Timeless Album, he can be heard stating a verse in the bible that says there is a time for everything, a time to laugh, to cry and to be silent.
2022 was a shaky year for the Nigerian-American singer/songwriter because he lost his son “Ifeanyi”, and this made him take some time off Social media to reflect on himself, heal and properly mourn the death of his beloved son.
Timeless Album by Davido will show that side of him that we have never heard before- the painful side; the lost side, the side that felt like the world was against him, and the side that everyone does not get to see regularly or has never even seen before.
Timeless Album by Davido might be his most successful yet.
In our article on the most anticipated 2023 Nigerian albums, we stated that Davido’s forthcoming album is the most anticipated 2023 Nigerian album. After the release of “Stand Strong” earlier in 2022, there were predictions that 2022 was the year we would get another Davido album.
But with some circumstances hindering this, Davido is back with his album titled “Timeless” and we are here for it.
Upon announcement, the post on Instagram has generated over a hundred thousand comments, stating that the album will be released on Friday March 31, 2023.
It is no gainsaying that Nigeria cannot wait to hear what Davido has cooked up for his Timeless Album!

Davido Timeless Album Release Date
The release date for Davido’s Timeless Album is Friday, March 31, 2023. It will mark Davido’s Fourth Studio album after the release of “A Better Time” in 2020- almost three years ago
Nigerian vocalist/producer Davido blends traditional African elements with global mainstream pop for a sound that’s equal parts intriguing and infectious.
He quickly grew from club-ready early songs to charting tracks and features from big names like Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown on his 2020 album- A Better Time.
Davido was born David Adedeji Adeleke in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1992. His interest in music began while attending Oakwood University in his late teens, and he started making his own beats and investigating music production.

He dropped out of school and began pursuing music full-time, relocating to Lagos, Nigeria, and releasing his debut single, “Back When,” in 2011.
The single received some attention for its mix of clubby production, high-energy vocals, and Afro-pop rhythms, and was followed shortly by second single “Dami Duro.”
Work began on his debut album, “Omo Baba Olowo”, which was released in 2012 and produced a plethora of singles.
Success came quickly for Davido, and he sated his fans with a string of new tracks released over the next several years while he was working on his sophomore album, The Baddest, which was still unreleased as of 2020.
Between 2013 and 2017, singles like “Gobe,” “Aye,” and “Pere” (among many others) piled up, sometimes featuring collaborations with bigger-name rappers like Meek Mill and Young Thug.
Between albums, Davido also inked a deal with RCA.
More standalone tracks followed until 2019, when second album A Good Time arrived, featuring guest appearances from A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Perruzi, Popcaan, Chris Brown, Summer Walker, Gunna and other stars from around the world, and did well both commercially and with critics.
Davido quickly followed the next year with his third effort A Better Time. The album was a similarly star-studded affair, with guest spots from Nicki Minaj, Lil Baby, Saulti Sol, and many others on Davido’s bright and catchy R&B-infused Afropop.
“A Better Time” also fared well commercially, breaking into the Billboard charts its first week of release.
