In May 2023, Davido dropped the track ‘Unavailable’ featuring Musa Keys, a song that quickly gained online traction with its associated dance challenge.

The track is a standout from Davido’s ‘Timeless‘ album, and its recognition has expanded globally, securing a notable position in Rolling Stone’s Staff’s top 10 Afropop songs of 2023.

Remarkably, ‘Unavailable’ claimed the second spot on the list, following South African sensation Tyla‘s ‘Water.’

Apart from Davido, Nigerian artist Victor Thompson’s gospel record ‘Blessing (This Year)’ remix featuring Gunna also made it to the seventh position.

Notable mentions on the list include Tyler ICU’s ‘Mnike,’ King Promise’s ‘Terminator,’ and Uncle Waffle’s ‘Yahyuppiyah.’

‘Unavailable’ stands as one of the shining gems from Davido’s record-breaking ‘Timeless’ album, which boasts other chart-topping singles like ‘Feel,’ ‘No Competition’ featuring Asake, and ‘Kante’ featuring Fave.

The second-place recognition on Rolling Stone’s list serves as a testament to Davido’s exceptional year. ‘Timeless’ further solidified its success by earning a spot on Billboard’s Top 50 albums of 2023.

As anticipation builds, Davido looks forward to the Grammy Awards on February 5, 2023.

‘Unavailable’ has been nominated for Best African Music Performance, while ‘Feel’ and ‘Timeless’ have also received nominations for Best Global Music Performance and Best Global Album.
