BURNA BOY has made a glorious return with “Wonderful”, the first official single from his forthcoming fourth studio album Twice As Tall arriving later this summer.
With a powerful acapella intro and bouncing energy throughout, the song serves as a musical representation of Burna’s personal journey and growth during the transition from his 2019 GRAMMY-nominated album African Giant to the upcoming Twice As Tall.
The song boasts a beautiful message of growth, pride, perseverance, true hustle and soaking in the wonderful things the world can offer us.
“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,” says Burna Boy.
“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.”
Burna Boy continues into 2020 after wrapping an extremely successful 2019. His Grammy-nominated album (Best World Music Album), African Giant, saw incredible critical acclaim at its release.
Following this, Burna Boy also become the first African artist to sell out London’s Wembley Arena.
