Burna: So, yesterday, I low-key watched “Burna Boy’s” LIVE watch party of his new album “TWICE AS TALL” on Instagram.
The wait is over. The African Giant aka “OluwaBurna” has returned with fresh sonic offerings for his devout followers and the world at large. Dubbed “Twice As Tall”, the general understanding is that Burna Boy is doubling down on his Pan-Africanism with music as his tool for spreading his message.
Music mogul Diddy serves as the executive producer of this album alongside Burna Boy and Bose Ogulu. The album promises a buffet of sounds with production from both Nigeria and foreign producers such as Telz, Rexxie, Leriq, Timbaland, Anderson Paak, and Mike Dean amongst others. Featured artists on this project are Stormzy, Chris Martin (Coldplay), Senegalese music royalty Youssou N’dour and iconic hip hop group Naughty by Nature
Speaking on the album, Burna Boy describes it as a journey saying “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”
