Burna Boy propelled himself to global stardom last year with his immaculate fourth studio album, African Giant, garnering himself his first every GRAMMY nod for Best World Music Album. The Nigerian Afrobeat star is currently gearing up to release his new album called Twice As Tall later this year, and today he’s released the first single from it, “Wonderful.”
“It’s important for me to show that music is a uniting force that transcends state lines, barriers and borders. This song is about the ‘wonders’ of seeing the impact of my music on people’s lives as they shared their joy, pain and pleasure with me while I toured the world,” Burna Boy shared about the track. “It serves as a note that no matter how far you go, or how hard you work; you must be ready to come home, the pandemic forced us all to take refuge in our homes. Above all, Africa is home, it is the motherland to all people. For us to truly matter, Africa has to matter.”
