On March 31, 2023, Davido’s fourth studio album, “Timeless,” was made available. It included collaborations with a number of Nigerian musicians, including Asake, Fave, The Cavemen, Morravey, Logos Olori, and Grammy-winning Beninese singer Angelique Kidjo.

The 17 songs on the album also feature performances by South African DJ Musa Keys, British rapper Skepta, Jamaican dancehall/reggae vocalist Dexta Daps, and South African artist Focalistic. The album has earned widespread acclaim since its release on a number of music streaming services, including Spotify, which named it the most-streamed album in the UK, Canada, France, and Nigeria. The album also broke the previous record for the number of first-day streams on Apple Music for an African album.
