On the heels of his successful tour performances across Europe and the US, grammy-winning singer and African giant, Burna Boy on Friday put out a staggeringly impressive body of work in his wildly anticipated sixth studio project ‘Love, Damini’.
‘Love, Damini’ boasts of two hit singles — “Kilometre” and “Last Last,” a banger which samples Toni Braxton’s classic ‘He Wasn’t Man Enough’ of which she would be getting 60 percent royalties from the song.
In the 19-tracked album which speaks on the different sides of him as an artist, Burna taps a wide array of big-name talents made up of sensational hit-making artists who join him on this personal project.
They include Dancehall icon, Popcaan who appears on the eleventh track, “T.A.S.,” Blxst and Kehlani are featured on the twelfth track, “Solid”, while Ed Sheeran on the album’s thirteenth track, “For My Hand.” J. Balvin hops on “Rollercoaster,” there’s also “Cloak & Dagger” which features British rapper J. Hus, who collaborated with Burna previously on his own song, “Play Play”, “How Bad Could It Be” feat. Khalid, and a stupendous list of other incredible artists.
The iconic and legendary south African powerhouse, Ladysmith Black Mambazo powerfully opens and close out the album which is home to other tracks like ‘Whiskey’, ‘Different size’, ‘Dirty Secrets’, ‘Wild dreams’, ‘Common Person’ and ‘Vanilla’.
Burna, who celebrated his 31st birthday on July 2 last album, Twice As Tall, was a massive success, taking home the Grammy for Best Global Music Album.
Now with a tracklist this stacked, posits say it seems like “Love, Damini” might follow in its footsteps.
Burna Boy’s sixth studio album, “Love, Damini” is out today on all digital platforms.
