Burna Boy shares ‘Real Life’, a collaborative banger featuring Stormzy taken from his recently released fifth studio album Twice As Tall.
The Nigerian is both a GRAMMY and BRITs-nominee, two-time recipient of BET’s Best International Act award and MTV Europe Music Award’s Best African act.
When commenting on his brand new record, Burna Boy said, “Twice As Tall is the album about a period of time in my life. It’s the album about the struggle for freedom. It’s the album about life in general, real life, good times, bad times, happy times, sad times, great times.”
Listen to ‘Real Life (feat. Stormzy)’ by Burna Boy on the Shoot Music New Releases playlist on Spotify.
Alongside the album, Burna Boy has also introduced his official comic book “The Secret Flame.” Narrated by his grandfather Benson Idonije (veteran broadcaster/journalist/music critic and former band manager of the legendary Fela Kuti), the animated comic follows the 29-year-old through a spiritual journey of discovering oneself while highlighting the very moments that brought him to where he’s standing tall today.
Executive produced by Sean “Diddy” Combs, Bosede Ogulu and Damini “Burna Boy” Ogulu, Twice As Tall, sees notable features from Senegal’s Youssou N’dour, Naughty By Nature, Kenyan band Sauti Sol, Chris Martin of Coldplay and Stormzy with additional appearances from LeriQ, Telz, P2J, Rexxie, Timbaland, Mike Dean, Anderson .Paak and Mario Winans.
While this album is a pure, unapologetic African body of work, it boasts of a global contemporary sound that is for everyone. For the “African Giant” this project is a product of a potpourri of emotions and he is now standing “twice as tall.”
