Popular Nigerian singer Burna Boy has released his new album titled ‘Twice As Tall’.
Burna Boy says his new album was inspired by his loss at the 2020 Grammy Awards which taught him a lot.
The song on the album takes stock of his accomplishments, vulnerabilities, and how he encourages ambition and perseverance against long odds. He also lashes out at racism, exploitation and widespread misconceptions about Africa.
‘Twice As Tall’ see features from
Senegalese artist Youssou N’Dour, O.G. trio Naughty By Nature, Kenyan afro-pop band Sauti Sol, Coldplay’s Chris Martin and U.K. rapper Stormzy. The effort rounds out at 15 songs and also include production from Timbaland, Mike Dean and executive produced by Sean Combs a.k.a. Diddy.
Announcing the release via his Instagram page, the African Giant crooner wrote: “This album was a journey through a bunch of emotions and energies at different points in time. It has now morphed into something bigger than me. It serves as a bridge for mankind to show that we’re all different but still very much the same. I’m grateful for the unreal talents that came together from ALL over the world to pull this off. Shout out to the OG @diddy for coming on board and sprinkling his own unique spice on this! I hope I’m able to spark something in you when you listen. 🦍 #TWICEASTALL.”
