Davido’s fourth studio album, “Timeless” following its release on March 31, 2023, via Sony Music U.K./RCA Records continues to break new records for African artists worldwide.
The Nigerian Afrobeat superstar’s “Timeless” had the most first-day streams ever for an African album on Apple Music. The 17-track album featured special appearances from Asake, Logos Olori, Skepta, Dexta Daps, Morravey, and more.
“Timeless” officially made its debut #2 on Billboards World Music chart, becoming Davido’s highest charting album.
Also, all 17 tracks on the album have charted on Billboard’s Afrobeat’s chart, with three of the tracks seeding top spots including “Unavailable” #8, “Over Dem” #10 and “Feel” #11. Additionally, “Timeless” made its appearance at number 10 on the UK Albums Chart as well.
Hot on the heels of all this success, Davido’s fans are gearing up for one of the summer’s hottest Afrobeat’s events – Davido’s return to the road in North America on the much-anticipated “Timeless Tour” produced by Live Nation Urban.
Taking over the U.S. this summer, the two-week run launches on July 1 in Washington, D.C. at the Capital One Arena, rolls through arenas in Houston and Chicago, and concludes on July 15 in Toronto, Canada at the Budweiser Stage.
This tour finds him in arenas everywhere, making for his biggest North American jaunt yet. Not to mention, he’ll be pulling out all the stops with production and the set-in support of his acclaimed 2023 album, “Timeless”.
A special fan presale goes live on April 26 at 10am local time through April 26 at 9am local time. General on-sale commences on April 28 at 10am local time.
