The Nigerian superstar returns with his fifth studio album, Twice As Tall. Executive produced by Sean “Diddy” Combs, the 15-track set includes appearances from Naughty by Nature, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Stormzy, Senegal’s Youssou N’dour, and Kenyan band Sauti Sol, with contributions from Timbaland, Anderson .Paak, Mario Winans, and Mike Dean.
The project, which Diddy has called the “album of the year,” was mostly recorded in Lagos during the pandemic. Eleven of the 15 tracks were produced by Nigerian producers, eight of which are from the Spaceship Collective.
“Twice As Tall is the album about a period of time in my life,” said Burna Boy. “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.”
Along with the album, Burna Boy has released his official comic book “The Secret Flame.” Narrated by his grandfather Benson Idonije, the animated visual follows Burna Boy through a spiritual journey of discovering oneself.
