Davido, now recrowned as 001, never ceases to exert his force on the social media scene when he decides to be active. Among the Big 3, however, he is somewhat left out of big numbers conversation but with this fourth album of his, Davido is taking no prisoners. Shattering records is a must! And Davido is up for that challenge. Timeless hit a prodigious 1B cumulative streams across DSPs.
Timeless, released on March 31, 2023, with no promotional single except the November 2021 Champion Sound single achieved this in just 4 months! The 5 major DSPs accounted for in this feat are Apple Music, Spotify, Audiomack, Boomplay, and YouTube.
Audiomack is the chief streaming resource for Timeless as it draws in a whopping 275.7M streams while Boomplay counters with 240.7M plays. The Premium platforms would soon take their positions with 191.5M from Spotify and a close 190M combat from Apple Music. YouTube will close the ring with an impressive 123.9 plays. This brings the 4-month-sum to a grand 1.02 billion streams for Timeless.
In the intro track to Timeless, Over Dem, Davido sings: “Too many blessings me I no fit talk / If them dey wait make them see me flop / Them go wait till thy kingdom come.” That is clear as daylight, he keeps soaring.
