Davido reveals how he got Nicki Minaj on a song in 'A Better Time'

Davido during an interview revealed how he got Nicki Minaj on his forthcoming album, ‘A Better Time”. Davido who was on the Drivetime show on Beatfm with Gbemi and Segun revealed that he sent a DM to Nicki Minaj while drunk and wasted.

In his words;

“Before this song, I had never spoken with Nicki. We were in a club in Abuja and I was really drunk and I had also just recorded this song. I was like ‘Nicki will kill this song.’

“So I took my phone and DMed her. I said, “Nicki, I got a song for us. It’s gon’ go number one, I promise you’ in those exact words. The next morning, [I saw a message from her which read], ‘send it.’ The next day, she sent it…“

Also speaking on why he is releasing another album barely a year after his last album, he said

“I was going to ride on ‘A Good Time’ till 2021 but while on tour, I realized that like six songs from ‘A Good Time’ were already out. So I really only added how many songs?”

He continued,

“I didn’t feel like it was a brand new album and then immediately I came back to Nigeria due to COVID, we started recording. And then, I was mostly in Atlanta Georgia, US when I recorded ‘A Good Time,’ so I was only talking to my producers via WhatsApp or Skype.

“Before I went to Los Angeles to do collaborations, the solo records I did here, I was on hand in Lagos [vibing with everybody]. I dropped ‘FEM’ today from a 17-track album. So we will get 16 new songs.”
