Drake’s “For All the Dogs,” Metro Boomin’s “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse,” Lil Yachty’s “Let’s Start Here,” Doja Cat’s “Scarlet,” and many other recent hit projects songs were featured on the list.

Following its March 2023 release, the album was nominated for three Grammy Awards, including Best Global Album for its most recent release, “Timeless.”

The other two nominations are for Best Global Music Performance, for his song “Feel,” and Best African Performance, for his song “Unavailable.” While OBO readies himself to shut down three major Nigerian cities, he has also teased the impending release of the visuals to “Kante,” featuring the gorgeous Fave, a song off the same classic LP.
