Davido links up with Lil Baby in the video for “So Crazy”

The second single off 'A Better Time', which will arrive this Friday

Davido is fast approaching go-time for his newest body of work, ‘A Better Time‘. Last November, the Nigerian pop juggernaut stunned listeners with his incredible sophomore album, a long-awaited follow up to his crowd-stealing debut, ‘Omo Baba Olowo‘. Just shy of a year later, Davido already has a follow up. ‘A Better Time‘ is titled and branded as the sequel to ‘A Good Time‘, one that promises more tracks from around the same high point in his life.

The lead single for ‘ABT‘, as Davido himself abbreviates it, was “FEM”, a confident, sharp-tongued hit that, at first caused buzz because of its subliminal messages directed at Burna Boy, but then took on an entirely new life as it voiced the sentiments of a generation who have grown tired of our leaders’ sweet nothings. After putting the project on hold to lend his voice and privilege to the #EndSARS movement, Davido has now returned to ‘A Better Time‘, releasing the album pre-order along with the second single off the record, “So Crazy”, featuring Lil Baby.

Throughout his career, Davido has come up alongside a number of elite American acts, from Meek Mill to the Migos. Collaborating with Summer Walker, Gunna, Chris Brown, A Boogie wit da Hoodie and Popcaan on ‘A Good Time‘, Davido will be bringing in collaborations with Nicki Minaj, Young Thug and more to ‘A Better Time’, including Lil Baby on “So Crazy”.

Davido’s latest is a typical Davido record, in that it sees him longing after a girl. This time however, she is giving him the run around, airing his calls and generally acting a little disinterested which he and Lil Baby of course find “so crazy,” they sing on the hook. Taking the song’s first verse after the introductory hook, Lil Baby delivers some solid bars, followed up confidently by Davido, who bursts in with a commendable rap performance.

As he tweeted in celebration of Joe Biden’s win in Georgia, that is David Adeleke’s second home. Looking very cosy in the music video for “So Crazy”, for which they hosted a pool party full of stunning women, one can only assume Davido and Lil Baby are on their home turf of Atlanta, Georgia. Giving credence to Davido’s assurances that the girl he’s after will have a good time with him, the simple music video is very effective in displaying the vibrant and fun-loving nature of the song. Hopefully these qualities extend album to itself.
