Burna Boy – “Bebo” Stream & Download
On his forthcoming fifth studio album, ‘Twice As Tall’, Burna pulls off the musical equivalent of blowing it all into fucking space. He describes the record as “a continuation” of last year’s ‘African Giant’, the acclaimed album which perfected his alchemical blend of Afrobeats, dancehall and hip-hop, and established him as one of the globe’s biggest stars.
Burna Boy was not a well-behaved student. Back then – before the Brit and Grammy nominations, the sold-out arena shows all around the world and the 600million streams of his irresistible music – he was Damini Ogulu, a recalcitrant schoolboy in southern Nigeria, skipping classes and getting into trouble. Looking back now, sat by the pool outside his luxurious home in Lagos,
‘African Giant’ featured guest spots from the likes of Damian Marley, Jorja Smith and Future, and picked up a Grammy nomination for Best World Music Album. Although Burna wound up losing out to the Beninese singer Angelique Kidjo, she used her speech to dedicate the award to him, saying: “Burna Boy is among those young artists that come from Africa that is changing the way our continent is perceived.”
Recorded mainly in Lagos, Nigeria over the last few months of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 15-track album will be executive produced by Diddy, Bosede Ogulu, and Burna himself. Boasting features including Chris Martin, Stormzy, Youssou N’Dour, and Naughty by Nature, producers on the project include Timbaland, Mike Dean, and more. Last month, Burna dropped “Wonderful,” the first single and video from the album.
The song “Bebo” is the 4th track off the 15 tracks consisted album. Listen to the song below:
