Doing Afrobeats Proud: Davido Records Historic Debut On The UK Albums Chart With ‘Timeless’

The latest Nigerian musician to debut in the top 10 of the UK album chart is Afrobeat Powerhouse Davido, who joins Burna Boy in that distinction. With his album “Timeless,” released on March 31st, 2023, the singer made his legendary debut. New records have been set for African musicians globally after the official release of David Adeleke’s fourth studio album, “Timeless.”

After Burna Boy’s “Love Damini” debuted at number 2 as the highest-ranking Nigerian album, “Timeless” debuted at number 10 on the UK albums chart. Davido’s latest album reached the top 10 of the charts, and he announced the good news on his social media accounts. The famous “Unavailable” challenge, which also raises the prospect of a music video, was also shared by Davido.

There is little to no doubt that David Adeleke is a gifted vocalist and performer. His fourth studio album, Timeless, also made a big splash as it debuted on the Billboard Album chart.

After selling over 17,000 units in the US alone, Davido’s record-breaking album “Timeless” officially debuted on the Billboard 200 albums chart at number 37. This is significant because the album also debuted at number 10 on the UK Albums Charts.

With his finest effort to date, Davido has continued to break and tie records while setting new ones. He and Burna Boy are the only African musicians to have entered the UK Albums Chart’s top 10 on their first try. As the singer hinted in a recent social media post that his smash hit “Unavailable” would get a music video released soon, fans anticipate the first music video from “Timeless.”
