Afrobeats superstar, Davido is still getting a lot of applause and commercial success with the release of his latest album, Timeless.
Davido has however revealed that of the 17-track album, some songs didn’t make it to the final tracklist.
Obviously, songs get cut for a number of different reasons and in fact, there are stories of whole albums getting scrapped.
During an interview with Beat FM, Davido was asked to reveal some of the artistes who he worked with on this Timeless album, whose songs didn’t make the final cut. He listed out the artistes and gave reasons.
Surprisingly, Davido had a song with Mayorkun, which is a duet people always love to see, but that didn’t end up on the album. He stated that one of the songwriters on that particular track was acting crazy and when he was ready to get down to business, it was too late.
In Davido’s words:
“…Ah! Many people o. They are even in my DM like “yo bro, I can’t wait”, I said “baba e no dey oh!” [laughs]. Uhmm, some cause of like paper work. Who did I work with? There’s a list I think, but shoutout to Fridayy. Me and Fridayy had an amazing record but uhmm, it wasn’t like – it was a Drake sample, but I called Drake and Drake cleared it for me, but then there were like other people that we couldn’t get to in time. So if I probably waited like one more week, I could have gotten it cleared, but I would just put that on the deluxe. Who else? Many people. It’s not even like the song no sweet oh, it just depends.
Like me and Mayorkun had a record, one of the writers on the record was just acting crazy. Then after, his head come fix back but it was too late. Uhmm, who else? Capella Grey from New York. Yeah, BLXST, me and BLXST have a record. Who else? In Naija? Me and Kizz have a whole album so we’re just keeping that for when we’re ready to do that. That’s really it. I think that’s everybody else apart from like producers.”
