Why Davido’s Album Is One Of The Worst This Year & Why It Can’t Match Wizkid Or Burna Boy’s Albums (Opinion)
Posted byPosted by badgeGbolahan on 50

Popular Nigerian music superstar, Davido on the 13th of November dropped his much anticipated studio album, ‘A Better Time,’ and it has been in shambles.

Firstly, when you talk about a project as in an album, it has to be a well near-perfect work. The process of the creation should be different and unique as you have a goal.

For artistes, a project or an album is like they are giving birth to a baby.

We saw this extra work and near-perfection in Davido’s “A Good Time” album which he released in 2019, according to him he took him more than 5 years to create that album.

Why then did he rush the release of “A Better Time,” it was obvious that the project was rushed so it could fit in for a release this year.

The features on the album are a 5/10, the album, “A Better Time,” does not have a direction, it just a project that cuts across different sounds with no soothing mix.

Some collaborations on the project were not needed.

For example, the song ‘Birthday Cake’ with Nas and Hit-Boy was nothing short of shambles.

The one with Sauti Sol was below par as well, The song, ‘Shopping Spree’ with Young Thug and Chris Brown did not hit the ground running.

’Holy Ground’ featuring Nicki Minaj is the song on the project that is standing tall amidst the international collaborations.

But when you look at it this way, the African features and the singles on the project are the best.

’The Best’ featuring Mayorkun is the best African feature on the project followed closely by the one with Tiwa Savage, ‘Tanana.’

”A Better Time,” project by Davido doesn’t have a direction that an album ought to have.

An artiste of his repute should be creating classic albums by now, he should be creating an album that could stick to people, that people would go back and listen to everytime and album that has a replay value.

Burna Boy and Wizkid are now looking more clear, Burna Boy last two albums have been nominated at the prestigious Grammy awards, Wizkid’s ‘Made In Lagos’ is getting massive acceptance around the world and still topping charts worldwide, it peaked number 80 on Billboard 200 where Davido’s ‘A Better Time’ peaked 170.

It is clear now that Davido has to find his touch again, his direction of his usual massive hits.

These albums can’t be compared as they have great difference in quality and we know who has the lowest quality.

The world is different now, getting huge numbers on your projects is not about getting huge and popular musicians to feature on your projects but by good and quality musics.

Davido Fans calm down..I am also a Davido fan....lets just be honest with ourselves for once....ABT album is below atandard...a Good time album was better...and i would still vote Made in Lagos and Twice as Tall Albums over A better Time album....Holy ground, The Best and Maybe Jowo are just the only song in the Album....the rest are Trash.

I don't agree with this at all. If I tell you that Wizkid's songs in #MadeinLagos# does not rhyme with the name of the album. Only #TwiceasTall# is the best hit of the year.

Well said, all this was for him to have an album just like burna and wizkid but TBH the album has no direction or connection it was just there, normally an album should have a story to tell. And all the big names to me I think it was not necessary cuz apart from holy ground with Nicki the rest was nothing to write home about.well davido wanted big names to hype up the album which to me was not really needed. Let's know if the album will go for the grammies next year and at the same time waiting for wizkid deluxe album.

We all know davido is not a talented artiste. We know that. His songs are fun. We love it. We know he can't sing. We love him. We know music isn't meant for him. But we admired his character. #ABT kept be going ever since it came to existence.so i give no damn shxt about what you say. We know they must surely complain.
