American-born Nigerian singer songwriter and record producer Davido's recently released album 'A Better Time' has surpassed a cumulative 100 million streams across all digital music platforms.
This feat has been reached barely three days since the album was released, making it the fastest project by an Afrobeats singer to hit such a mark.
The 'A Better Time' album was released on November 13, 2020 and houses 14 tracks.
While sharing news of the new Achievement with the album, Davido thanked his fans for supporting it.
He, however, noted that the streams were not from all digital platforms, meaning it is way past the 100 millions recorded so far.
"100 million streams in 3 days!! from Apple Music, Boomplay, Youtube, Spotify & Audiomack. Other DSP’s to report later today, let’s keep streaming ABT! GOD BLESS EVERYONE!" Davido tweeted.
In the album, which is his third, Davido teamed up with a number of top international and Nigerian acts among them Nick Minaj, Chris Brown, Nas, Lil Baby, Young Thug, Sho Madjozi, Ckay, Sauti Sol and Nigerian artists: Tiwa Savage, Bella Shmurda and Mayorkun.
Some of the tracks off the album that have been performing well include the lead single 'FEM' released in September which has over 12 million views on YouTube, 'So Crazy' featuring Lil Baby which was released days before the album was officially unveiled and a collaboration with rapper Nick Minaj titled 'Holy Ground' which has over 1.5 million views on YouTube already without a video.
So far, Davido has released two music videos for singles in the 'A Better Time' album: 'FEM' and 'So Crazy' which has managed 2.2 million views on YouTube in a week.
More videos will be dropping soon after Davido said he was working on two more for: 'Jowo' and 'The Best' featuring Mayorkun.
