ALBUM REVIEW: Davido Serves Euphonious Melodies In ‘Timeless’



Review: Davido Serves Up Euphonious Melodies In New Album 'Timeless'

Davido’s has a flair for creating euphonious melodies. His ability to serve groovy sounds, relaxing lyrics and stellar sound production would make even his fiercest critics forget about his other shortcomings and bask in the art of the artiste who has mastered the art of conjuring good music.

‘Timeless’, the 17-track album, released on 31 March 2023 by Davido Music Worldwide (DMW), Columbia Records, and Sony Music Entertainment, features Skepta, Angelique Kidjo, Asake, Focalistic, Morravey, Logos Olori and The Cavemen and it is Davido’s 4th studio album.

The album opens with Over Dem, an incredibly tight sound layered with an additional trumpet, tenor, and alto sax section. The track is a mixture of different sounds; African rhythms like Juju, Highlife and Funk were used extensively. The track is where he throws subtle shade to his enemies by affirming his commitment to his craft, putting behind his pains and loss.

“If dem wan turn Goliath. I be David for life”

The second track ‘Feel’ which is an Amapiano sound is where the artiste shows his sexual side by flirting with a girl whose voice was ricocheting in the background. This track sees the singer upgrade his pitch and vocalization.

Morravey exudes confidence in ”In The Graden”. Without inhibition, she expresses her banal fantasies with skillful vocalization that demonstrates her singing skills. Davido further complements it with sublime entry.

Davido claims to be the “Godfather” while perched on his throne. He attributes all of his good fortune to God, advises detractors to stay away from him, and affirms that he has a very strong team supporting him. By doing this, he solidifies his position as a gaming legend.

Unavailable ft Musa Keys is a sumptuous delivered production and the song’s steady-going rhythm lends it an appealing groove. While ”For The Road” is a song to a cheating lover who isn’t willing to control himself. As he seems prepared to let her leave, he says:

“Gimme one for the road.”

No Competition featuring Asake shows why the YBNL signee is one of the most sought after singer in Nigeria. He has been able to meld his own art to Afrobeat and his lines on this track is all shades of groovy and relaxing sound.

On “Kante,” Fave provides some soothing tunes, and on “Na Money,” The Cavemen and Angelique Kidjo provide their talents. The results of such a high-caliber partnership are, unsurprisingly, nothing short of outstanding. Skepta is well-known in Nigeria’s music scene, and his performance on “U(JuJu)” stands out as one of his most powerful.

The album is worth a listen.
