Afrobeats superstar, Davido, has announced the release of his fourth album, Timeless, in a cinematic trailer that he shared on Twitter on March 21. The announcement took fans by surprise as it will be his first body of work since his 2020 album, A Better Time. In the trailer, Davido can be seen moving through a jungle, writing at a desk, and performing in concert while a voiceover narrates the different moments throughout his career.
The trailer ends with the clock striking 12, and Davido writing the word “Timeless” on a paper, which then blows away. He captioned his tweet with a thank you message to his fans, acknowledging that there is a time for everything, including grief and healing, laughter and dancing, speaking and silence. He also revealed that the album will be released on March 31 and can be preordered in his bio.
The announcement comes after Davido’s fellow Afrobeats superstar, Wizkid, announced in January 2023 that they would be going on tour together after his own More Love, Less Ego Tour. The joint tour is set to take the music scene by storm and is sure to be one of the biggest events of the year.
Despite experiencing the tragic loss of his three-year-old son, who drowned in a swimming pool at his parents’ home in Lagos, Nigeria, Davido has remained resilient and continued to create music. In December 2022, he performed at the FIFA World Cup stage, becoming the first Nigerian artist to do so. He joined AISHA and Trinidad Cardona to perform “Hayya Haaya (Better Together),” which was received with much excitement and applause from the crowd.
Davido’s announcement has sent fans into a frenzy, with many expressing their excitement and anticipation for Timeless. His previous album, A Better Time, was a massive success, featuring collaborations with international artists such as Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Baby. It is expected that Timeless will surpass its predecessor’s success and cement Davido’s status as one of the top Afrobeats artists in the world.
In conclusion, Davido’s announcement of his upcoming album, Timeless, has left fans eager and excited to hear what he has in store. The trailer’s cinematic approach and powerful message have only added to the anticipation, making it one of the most highly anticipated albums of the year. With his resilience and talent, Davido is sure to continue making waves in the music industry and leave an indelible mark on the Afrobeats genre.
