Davido has also dropped a song with American rapper Lil Baby called ‘So Crazy’ from his fourth studio album ‘A Better Time.’ Speaking on joining hands with Atlanta rapper, Davido in an official statement said, as reported by NME, “I’ve known Lil Baby for quite a while, and I think it’s important that I point this out that when you are collaborating on a record, you need to make sure that the relationship is good outside of music. I feel like that is when you make the best music.” Davido’s new album ‘A Better Time’ is a follow-up to his 2019 hit album ‘A Good Time’.

Real crazy times. And through it all, we’ve all had to look inwards to find our unique hopes of better times ahead. I found a few. In human form and creative form. I’m so glad I can finally share them with you. I present to you ‘A Better Time.’” He added, “One thing about African- rich or poor, happy or sad, is that no matter what the situation going on in your country, you always find a reason to smile and just be happy. We (African people) always like to celebrate and ‘A Better Time’ is that outlet to be free, be happy and hopeful for a better future.”
