Afrofusion superstar Burna Boy has announced the release of his eagerly awaited new album. AFRICAN GIANT is available now via Bad Habit/Atlantic Records at all DSPs and streaming services.
AFRICAN GIANT features a series of extraordinary singles, including “On The Low,” “Gbona,” “Dangote,” and “Anybody,” all of which are joined by official companion videos streaming now via the official Burna Boy YouTube channel HERE.
Burna Boy recently revealed his contribution to the Beyoncé-produced Lion King album The Gift with the smooth-flowing single “JA ARA E.” Following on the heels of this release, Burna was featured in BILLBOARD highlighting his success story. A 2019 BET Award winner for “Best International Act,” Burna Boy will also celebrate African Giant with a major U.S. headline tour. “The African Giant Returns Tour” begins August 9th at Toronto, ON’s Rebel and then travels through late September.

In addition, Burna Boy – whose just-wrapped “African Giant Tour” saw him light up Coachella with a fiery big band live set – will be among the headline acts performing at the upcoming Interswitch One Africa Music Fest, set for August 10th at Brooklyn, NY’s Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk.
Recently named as an Apple Music “Up Next” artist, Burna Boy made his U.S. network television debut earlier this week with an incendiary live performance – presented in partnership with Apple Music’s “Up Next” program – on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, streaming HERE. Additional TV performances will be announced soon. In addition, an exclusive “Apple Music Up Next: Burna Boy“ documentary is streaming now HERE.
Burna Boy is among contemporary African music’s brightest new stars and creator of an enigmatic new genre he simply dubs “Afrofusion.” Born Damini Ogulu in Port Harcourt City, Nigeria, the gifted singer-songwriter has released a long series of EPs, singles, mixtapes, and albums including 2018’s extraordinary OUTSIDE. The award-winning collection proved Burna Boy’s U.S. breakthrough, debuting at #3 on Billboard’s “Reggae Albums” chart, fueled in part by the blockbuster single/video, “Ye,” joined by an official video streaming HERE.
