Burna Boy has finally released his highly anticipated third studio album “African Giant” earlier today. His seventh project in total, this project comes just a year after his commercially successful and critically acclaimed mixtape “Outside” which housed singles like ‘Ye‘, ‘Streets Of Africa’ and ‘Heavens Gate‘ with Lily Allen.
On this 19-track album, Burna Boy brings along an A-team of international superstars including Jorja Smith, YG, Future, Damian Marley, Angelique Kidjo and more. Raving rapper, Zlatan Ibile is surprisingly the only Nigerian featured on the tape, with Burna himself appearing solo on 13 tracks.
The album “African Giant” is titled after his self-ascribed nickname, popularized following his infamous Coachella font-size rant on Instagram earlier this year. The album contains all his afrobeat-laced post-“Outside” releases including ‘Gbona’, ‘On The Low‘, ‘Killin Dem‘, ‘Dangote‘ and the raving ‘Anybody‘. Unified by their apparent Afrobeat influences, we knew these records were building up to something bigger and gladly, our suspicions have been confirmed.
Earlier this week, the singer released ‘Pull Up‘, the latest single off the album and also guested on Jimmy Kimmel Live where he delivered an impressive live rendition of ‘Anybody‘ to a cheering audience.
