Spotify exclusive trailer reveals star-studded track list for Davido’s Timeless

Spotify has released an exclusive trailer to promote Davido's next album Timeless. The caravan, which depicts the African superstar on the set of a TV interview, arrives as fans await the release of the Afrobeats star's fourth studio album on March 31. It will be the singer's first musical offering after a five-month public absence, as well as his first album since 2020's A Better Time.

Released via Spotify’s social channels, the trailer sees Davido answering questions about his new body of work, describing it simply in one word; Timeless. Nearby, a teleprompter rolls out the album’s much-anticipated tracklist - and if the calibre of artists and Davido’s penchant for timeless collaborations are anything to go by, fans are in for an amazing musical experience.

The album is slated to feature a total of 17 tracks, including the previously released Champion Sound with Amapiano ambassador Focalistic. It boasts a roll-call of established international and emerging local artists as well, in keeping with Davido’s decade-spanning reputation as a connector and key collaborator in Afrobeats and global music. Some of the most exciting names include UK Grime legend Skepta, dancehall king Dexta Daps, Grammy winner Angelique Kidjo and Nigerian hitmaker Asake. Davido also uses the album to shine the spotlight on emerging talent like Nigerian singers, Logos olori and Fave, as well as the exciting Nigerian folk band, The Cavemen and digital content creator, Morravey. 

The trailer follows the Spotify-exclusive Timeless Afro, a playlist featuring the most definitive Afrobeat songs as curated by Davido. These initiatives are part of the streaming giant’s support for the singer’s return to the public eye, and in keeping with Spotify’s long-running mission to support African music and its creators. 

Speaking about the trailer, Spotify’s Artist and Labels Partnerships Manager for West Africa, Victor Okpala says  “This release is a much anticipated moment for one of African music’s greatest ambassadors of the digital era. Spotify is committed to providing a platform for global audiences to connect with African content and we’re glad to support Davido as he achieves another milestone.”
