The “Fem” crooner spoke at length with the hosts, discussing his decision to leave social media, his upcoming album, and more.davidoDavido gave reasons why he’s releasing his sophomore “A Better Time”, barely a year after his previous, “A Good Time.”
“I was going to ride on ‘A Good Time’ till [2021] but while on tour, I realized that like six songs from ‘A Good Time’ were already out. So I really only added how many songs?”

, “I didn’t feel like it was a brand new album and then immediately I came back to Nigeria due to COVID, we started recording. And then, I was mostly in Atlanta [Georgia, US] when I recorded ‘A Good Time,’ so I was only talking to my producers via WhatsApp or Skype.” He continued.

“Before I went to [Los Angeles] to do collaborations, the solo records I did here, I was on hand in Lagos [vibing with everybody]. I dropped ‘FEM’ today from a 17-track album. So we will get 16 new songs.”
