How long for forward DNS lookups?

Hi folks, Helping a customer with some application migration testing. They have an established DNS domain with digitalocean. I added a new droplet to do testing with and the added a new A record to point to the new droplet. The PTR record is out there and resolvable on the internet already but the forward lookup (A record) isn’t resolving yet after about 1/2 day. Is that just how long it takes? wait till tomorrow or something?
