Davido Says He Had To Pick Out Of 62 Songs For Timeless

Davido released his fourth album, “Timeless,” on March 31, 2023. The megastar whose music has dominated Afrobeats for the past ten years had a rare time of stillness before releasing the much-awaited album.
Davido stated to CNN that he recorded roughly 62 songs in order to be ready for his next album.
“I had to pick out of 62 songs for ‘Timeless’. We first narrowed it down to 20 songs then to 17 and 18 songs,” the hitmaker tells CNN’s African Voices.
Additionally, Davido explained that there were many excellent songs to choose from, making the process of selecting the songs for the album rather laborious.
“It’s the hardest process. Today, you say you want this one and in two weeks you’re not feeling it anymore and you want a new one.”
Davido also stated that he had enough new songs for a full album, therefore his follow-up was essentially finished.
The album “Timeless” has seen enormous commercial success since its debut and has since broken all first-week records on all five of Nigeria’s main streaming services.
There will be a ‘Timeless’ deluxe, according to Davido. On April 23, 2023, he is scheduled to play songs from his next album in Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos. According to the hitmaker, the performance would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
