Seven years after the release of his debut album, Davido releases his much anticipated sophomore album, A Good Time. As the name implies, Davido tried to create the scenery for having a good time with this album. The world received the album wholeheartedly, as it has topped various charts around the world. The 17-track LP includes 12 new tracks and 5 already released records. The star-studded album features the likes of Chris Brown, Naira Marley, Summer Walker, Yonda, Gunna, and so on. Production credits go to Kiddominant, Shizzi, FreshVDM, LondonOnDaTrack, and so on.

Positives

Davido really gave us a good time with this album that cut across various genres of music. Genres like afro-pop, R&B, afro-house, hip-hop, reggae, dancehall, and even jazz. All songs on this album are feel-good songs, hence the title, A Good Time.
Davido surpassed all expectations, to be honest. I mean we expected growth, but this album sounds timeless. One thing we love the most about A Good Time is the perfect blend of different genres and cultures on various songs on this album. Just add Latin's reggaeton genre, and this would have cut across all the popular genres out.
The stand-out records on this album are Intro, One Thing, D&G, and Disturbance. The most interesting song to listen to was 'Sweet In The Middle' due to the fact that it was the most experimental song on the project. The dark-horse of the album is 'Animashaun' which features Yonda. Yonda has a case for being the most underrated singer/songwriter in Nigeria. Our least favorite song is 'Big Picture', as the song felt unnatural for all artiste involved. Dremo was the best thing that happened to the song.
