by Burna Boy
If you are into Afrobeats, then you know that the month of August was FIRE! In case you did not know, Burna Boy, Maleek Berry, Adekunle Gold and Fireboy DML all dropped albums. Mind you, there may be others; however, these are the ones I was made aware of. I am still trying to listen to Adekunle Gold and Fireboy DML because I cannot stop listening to Burna Boy and Maleek Berry.
This month’s song is by the one and only Burna Boy! I have to be honest – I have not been a day one Burna Boy fan. It’s not because I didn’t like his music; I just never really listened to an entire album until last year. I mean, I knew popular songs but I probably couldn’t tell you what he looked like. Last year, I saw him in concert, and I was blown away and can now spot him ANYWHERE. I had such a good time at the concert that I will go to every other concert he has.
I really, truly enjoyed the “African Giant” album last year before I went the concert but loved it even more after the show. So, when I saw he was dropping another album this year, I was sold! “Twice as Tall” did not disappoint AT ALL. It is hard for me to pick one song that I love this month because I literally love all of them, but since I have to pick just one, I would choose “Onyeka (Baby)” because it makes me dance and he’s talking about toasting a babe. If you haven’t listened to the album, what are you waiting on? Go listen to it.
This song makes me want someone to sing a song about me; in fact, I will settle for a song with my name in it that is not referring to alcohol, lol. Enjoy the song!
Till next time.
