Davido’s album surpasses 150 million streams on Spotify.
Nigerian Afrobeat artist David Adedeji Adeleke OON, who is professionally known as Davido has received some solace from a musical milestone as his most recent album, “Timeless,” has amassed more than 150 million streams on the global streaming platform, Spotify.
Recall, On March 31, 2023, The DMW boss released his fourth album. The highly anticipated 17-track album came off the back of a rare quiet moment from the award-winning artist who has made a name for himself as Africa’s most formidable hitmaker.
The acclaimed musician released the 17-track album, featuring collaborations with renowned artists such as Asake, Skepta, Musa Keys, and Angelique Kidjo.
A week after its release, “Timeless” has broken several local and international records across all five of Nigeria’s main music streaming platforms.
Timeless has earned the most debut week award across the top five streaming services in Nigeria, which is an exceptional indication of both the song’s appeal and Davido’s business savvy.
The success of the album on Spotify was revealed on the streaming platform’s page, and Davido was congratulated.
