Burna Boy’s new album ‘African Giant’ is almost here and here’s everything we know about it so far…
Our very own Tim Westwood is a legend in the game and he managed to grab a few minutes with ‘Ye’ star Burna Boy whilst our in Croatia at Fresh Island Festival to talk about new album ‘African Giant’.
His huge tracks ‘Ye’ and ‘On The Low’, as well as his collab with UK rapper Dave on ‘Location’ have set this new album up perfectly, and Burna Boy has become one of the hottest artists on the planet – so this release is very highly anticipated across the globe.
As you can see in the video above, Burna Boy is staying pretty tight-lipped about his ‘African Giant’ album’ but the Nigerian artist does reveal a few things about the new album.
