Davido had this year assured fans of a third project, A Better Time, and while there were pockets of doubts, a released tracklist confirmed its existence and handsomely featuring a mix of international artists (Nicki Minaj, Nas, Chris Brown and more) and also local stars like Tiwa Savage and Mayorkun.

Off the 17-track album, audacious single FEM became an accompaniment to the #ENDSARS movement on some protest grounds, and Davido himself vitally played a role in the struggle, leading protesters in Abuja against police brutality and making intercessions.
A Better Time shines with some of the guest features, like Shopping Spree with Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj on Holy Ground. Stream the album below.
