David Adeleke popularly known as Davido has revealed that he recorded over 62 songs from where he had to pick the songs that made his new Album, ‘TIMELESS’.
Davido made this revelation while speaking to CNN’s African Voices, The Changemakers, a CNN special edition that highlights the continent’s most dazzling people who create their own subcultures. He said that he recorded about 62 songs while preparing for his new album.
I had to pick from 62 songs for ‘Timeless’. We first narrowed it down to 20 songs and then to 17 and 18 songs.
The ‘Aye’ crooner also narrated that the process of picking the songs that made the album was quite painstaking as there was a large pool of great songs to choose from.
It’s the hardest process. Today, you say you want this one and in two weeks you’re not feeling it anymore and you want a new one.
He explained that his next album was effectively done as he had enough new songs for the next project.
Since ‘Timeless’ was released, the album has enjoyed massive commercial success and it has gone on to break all first-week records on all five major streaming platforms in Nigeria.
Davido has announced that there will be a ‘Timeless’ deluxe.
He hopes to perform songs from his new album on April 23, 2023, at Tafawa Balewa Square Lagos and according to the hitmaker, the concert will be an unforgettable experience.
