The songs on this album are from and inspired by the singer and songwriter’s musical drama directional debut which bears the same name with the album arriving February 12.
Hey Boy was initially released November last year with millions of streams on digital platforms. Music caused quite a ruckus in the autism community after Sia was criticized for casting a non-autistic person to play the lead autistic role.
Burnaboy is no stranger to International collaborations as seen in 2020’s Oasis with Sam Smith which went on to become a hit single both home and abroad. He has worked with the likes of Stormzy, Ed Sheeran, pop smoke, Jorja Smith, Major Lazer, Dj Snake etc. He inflects his African sound in Hey Boy with Sia which adds more depth and rhythm to the already amazing song.
