The wait is now over, as one of the most anticipated albums of 2020, has finally been dropped. The album titled Twice As Tall is coming from no other than from the African Giant himself, Burna boy.
The Twice As Tall album which was executive produced by Diddy,Bose Ogulu and Burna Boy himself, is a 15 track star-studded album, and was officially released on August 14th 12:midnight.
The album is a follow up to his critically acclaimed 2019 album “African Giant” in 2019.
“Twice As Tall” boast of features from Senegalese artist Youssou N’Dour, O.G. trio Naughty By Nature, Kenyan afro-pop band Sauti Sol, Coldplay’s Chris Martin and U.K. rapper Stormzy.
The Grammy-nominated singer — and two-time winner of the BET Award for Best International Act, while speaking on the ablum, said the album is “a journey through a bunch of emotions and energies at different points in time. It has now morphed into something bigger than me. It serves as a bridge for mankind to show that we’re all different but still very much the same.”
Speaking about the album, Diddy who has worked with the likes of Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z, Usher and the late The Notorious B.I.G. told the New York Times that “I’m on record that I like hit records. If they’re not hit records, I don’t like them.”
Diddy added that “He (Burna Boy), as every artist, he wants his music to be heard by the world. He doesn’t care about crossing over.
You know, he’s not trying to get hot. He’s not, like, ‘I want to be a big pop star’ — he’s already a star. He wants his music to be heard, his message, his people.”
