One month after introducing the official music video for his Popcaan-assisted single “Risky,” Davido is serving up a new LP titled A Good Time. Davido’s second studio album, A Good Time serves as the follow-up to his 2016 EP Son of Mercy and his first full-length release since the arrival of his debut album, 2012’s Omo Baba Olowo. The award-winning superstar’s latest project delivers 17 new tracks to listeners, including collaborations with Gunna, Summer Walker, Chris Brown, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and more.

“I started as a producer … I really started liking American-type music when I was in college,” Davido shared with us earlier this year, opening up about his artistic origins for an April edition of our MIC/LINE podcast. “I went to Nigeria, and I saw how the culture was and the music. It was 2010 and I fell in love with Nigerian music. Fell in love with entertainment. I fell in love with the whole thing. I was like, I want to be a part of this … I packed my bags and I moved back. It’s just crazy how me moving back to Nigeria and doing what I did in Nigeria, making the type of music I made, making the type of music I know how to make, for it to be crossing over here now … for me to be here, go back home, and for the cycle to come back over here, it’s amazing. African people are really supportive of their culture — are really proud of their culture.”
