Burna Boy Finally Releases His “African Giant” Album

Nigerian superstarm Damini Ogulu known professionally as Burna Boy, has finally released his highly anticipated project, the ‘African Giant‘ album.

“Saying ‘African Giant’ goes to a lot more than music,” Burna Boy tells Apple Music. “It’s a symbol of strength. That’s what I want my people to feel like, to realize that they are.”

On the Nigerian Afro-fusion kingpin’s fourth studio album, that credo of understanding your worth and truth rings through songs which address success (“Gbona”), respect (“Anybody”), love and desire (“On the Low”) and poverty, aspiration and the daily grind (“Dangote”).

Burna Boy might talk of ancestral influence overtaking his messaging and songwriting “When it’s time for music to be made, it’s almost like my ancestors just come into me and then it’s them,” he says, but he continues to skillfully consolidate the new with the old. Leading-edge pop, hip-hop and R&B fuse with Afrobeat and reggae traditions in vibrant grooves that are rich but never overcooked.

His vocals demonstrate a matching versatility, shifting gears with supercare precision and ricocheting between English, Yoruba and Nigerian Pidgin. “Music is supposed to be a universal language,” he says. “You understanding what I’m saying is secondary. The primary thing is what does the person inside of you hear? What does your spirit hear? That’s the job of music, that’s what it’s supposed to do.”

Listen to the lead single off the project titled ‘African Giant‘.
