Number one no forget
If you dey vex make you go kick bucket

Them no fit chain me o

Their heart be like stone
But I fly over them like drone

Too many blessings me I no fit talk
If them dey wait make them see me flop
Them go wait till thy kingdom come
You carry gun, me I carry bomb

We go dey shock dem like high tension
Who know say Uncle Demola go become governor
You know say God dey my side everytime I come through

Breakdown of Over Dem by Davido Lyrics

African superstar, Davido‘s fourth studio album titled “Timeless” officially dropped on March 31, 2023. The “Timeless” album was made available via Sony Music Entertainment, Columbia Records, and Davido Music Worldwide (DMW). This project has 17 songs, which also include collaborations with Skepta, Angelique Kidjo, Asake, Focalistic, The Cavemen, etc.

Notably, Over Dem, the intro track of Timeless is special and lit as we expected, and the world enjoys this timeless music. Being aware of how exceptional Davido gets with his famous singles, we expected that the Timeless album’s opening track, Over Dem, would brighten the mood right away. Also, as demonstrated by his last two albums, Davido likes to pack his intro tracks as major hits. The bight Afrobeats star doesn’t miss the mark either with Over Dem.

Over Dem is the opening song of Davido`s Timeless album which the Afro-fusion icon used to usher in the year 2023, as he comes back from his long break. This is an explicit journey for his music lovers and listeners. Over Dem comes with a theme that focuses on his champion journey with a strong bold confidence theme highlighted as Davido boasts, “Over dem all”.

On this track, we find Davido giving thanks to God for his overwhelming journey and blessings so far in his life. This is very special coming from the DMW boss, it`s no news about the dark spell he has had to manage over the few years as he lost friends and family. The Nigerian superstar is back as he shows he stands strong as he powers on with his bounce back. What a way to introduce a timeless project!

Over Dem is another track that proves his worth. The track relays a message of a champion that had to win against bad chances and odds.

This is a scenario an average person may relate to while listening to this melodious tune as Davido highlights the hurdles he had to face, the enmity he has come across, God`s being on his side, and his undisputed win. At the end of every season, everyone hopes to come out on top. With that being the major theme of the opening track of the Timeless album, this is a mood one would enjoy vibing and relating to.

Delivery

The delivery of this track is so surreal but did we expect anything less from one of the greatest African music ambassadors of this generation? Davido put work into this new project, Timeless. The elite production he utilized is quite evident throughout the album, Over Dem stands out as unique too, we hear Davido singing with ease on this tune. With a calm tune that soothes the ear, Davido dropped a masterpiece as an opening track here.

The replay value of Over Dem is pretty lit, the anticipation of the project as a whole gives the opening track interesting attention already. You just miss this aura of Davido`s music, so you just get to rinse and repeat this new music over and over. Timeless is a collection of 17 songs, but you may just find yourself going over to the top before the whole album time runs out – yes, over dem is that good!
