Following his Grammy loss to Angelique Kidjo, Burna Boy had disclosed the title of his next album as ‘Twice as Tall’– which suggested he knew better.
“So now I’m ‘Twice as Tall’. That’s the name of my next album, by the way, dropping in July by the grace of the most high,” he had said.
However, after his failure to meet the July schedule, the singer took to his Twitter page on Wednesday to release an explicit video of himself in the studio, in the caption of which he simply wrote, “14/8.”
In June, Burna Boy came through with ‘Wonderful’, a track off ‘Twice as Tall’, before he was recruited by Sam Smith, an English singer, for ‘My Oasis’.
The ‘African Giant’ crooner rose to prominence in 2012 after releasing ‘Like to Party’, the lead single from his debut album. He later signed with the US’ Bad Habit/Atlantic Records and Warner Music Group globally.
‘African Giant’ would later amass positive review globally, win the ‘Album of the Year’ at the 2019 AFRIMA, and get nominated for ‘Best World Music Album’ at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards.
