In November, Davido unleashed A Better Time, and has now has shared a cinematic new visual for one of the stand-out collab tracks from the project. Directed by Dammy Twitch, the storyline-driven video for “The Best” follows a series of events inspired by The Karate Kid. Davido plays the role of Master while Mayorkun is his student, and together the two empark on a journey to become their best selves. On the song, Mayorkun references the importance of defense and later on Davido takes care of the hook:
Nwannem I come from the ghetto. Sho get? You get o, sho get o? O get o then forget. Ye, when I give my attack, you defend. Reset o your defense.
Fine girl when you’re on tonight. Tell me if you don’t mind. Make you come to mine. Tell me if you don’t mind. Make you come to mine. Tell me if you don’t mind. I no fit look you chance my brother. For this life and another life (Life life one life). Omo temi ko rara. Suddenly from good I’m better. You no fit see me bitter laye laye.
Davido delivered the aforementioned highly anticipated project A Better Time a few months ago. The A Better Time project spans across 17 tracks, including early fan favorites like “FEM” and “Holy Ground.” A Better Time includes gust features from some big names like Nicki Minaj, Nas, Chris Brown, Young Thug, and more. Before the project dropped, Davido shared the music video for “So Crazy” featuring one of 2020’s busiest rappers, Lil Baby.
