Burna Boy who likes to label his body of work and genre as Afro-Fusion makes a come back with another masterpiece full studio effort titled, Twice As Tall.
The new album follows the success of African Giant, which got him Grammy nomination, even though he lost that award, the fortunate thing was; it still came to Africa – Angélique Kidjo won it. Burna Boy started giving a glimpse of the new album earlier in the year when his now-cancelled tour had the same name.
Twice As Tall got the world’s attention due to Burna Boy’s rise on the African continent and the world stage with his previous album. He recruited American rapper and businessman, Sean Combs to executive produce Twice As Tall, and his voice was echoed at the beginning of “Real Life,” a song which has British-Ghanaian musician, Stormzy as a collaborator.
Burna Boy included previous single release – Wonderful as the lead single on the album and excluded singles like Money Play and Odogwu. Before the release of ”Twice As Tall,” he appeared on singles like My Oasis with Sam Smith and also on late American rapper, Pop Smoke’s posthumous album Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon.
He continued his quest to take over the entire world with guest appearances from Naughty By Nature, Chris Martin, Sauti Sol and Youssou N’Dour on the fifteen track album. Burna Boy prefers to preach the African stories on his songs, a style which was made more vivid on his previous album and he has continued on the new album as well. The album arrives with a comic book and merch called The Secret Flame.
