UPDATE: You can enjoy the new visual for “Anybody” below.
Right in the midst of his African Giant tour, Afrofusion artist Burna Boy shares a new song and accompanying video. “Anybody” is a song about recognizing who you are and taking charge. The artist recounting his journey to where he is today while simultaneously paying his dues. The visual, directed by Clarence A. Peters, narrows in on Burna Boy as well. The artist commands every scene with his trademark frenetic energy and encourages freedom of expression through vibrant and empowering outfits and dancers. With this song, Burna Boy once again cements his stance as a global force to be reckoned with and consolidates his place as one of Africa’s greatest artists.
The track art for “Anybody” is equally impactful. Artist Sajjad Musa encapsulates Burna Boy’s message of togetherness through his custom original currency, with the juxtaposition of traditional tribes against a futuristic landscape acting as a metaphor for progress for the people of Africa. Burna Boy’s signature spaceship insignia further propelling the same message of ascension.
“Anybody” continues a successful year for Burna Boy, arriving after performances at both weekends of Coachella with more dates from his African Giant tour still to come here. The song is also the latest taste from a new body of work following “Dangote,” “On The Low,” and “Killin Dem” with Zlatan and follows his explosive joint EP with production duo DJDS, Steel & Copper.
Born in Port Harcourt City, Burna Boy began producing music at just 10 years old, influenced by his dancehall and reggae-loving father. After graduating from school, Burna relocated to London for University, but dropped out and returned to Nigeria two years later to pursue his passion of music. Burna’s grandfather managed Fela Kuti for the first 15 years of his career, which helped shape Burna’s sound and his place in music as a representative of Nigeria, and more broadly Africa, to the world with the enigmatic genre he coined, Afrofusion.
Hear and watch “Anybody” below and stay tuned for more from Burna Boy coming soon.
