Album Review: Burna Boy – “Twice as Tall”

Burna Boy had just released his much-anticipated album following last year’s Grammy nomination. The title of the album is ‘Twice as tall’ released the album is expected to be a hit in the music industry, accompanying me as I pass you through the review of this amazing album.

THE ALBUM COVER

The cover of the album depicts Burna boy as a human giant carrying people on his shoulder and standing around the Giza pyramid and the famous art of Benin Kingdom. The cover had quite a controversy when it was released but was mostly praised as being one of the best as Burna said he made it himself during the corona virus lockdown.

Let Beging to review the  album :

 LEVEL UP

Stream Audio: Level

Level up (Twice as tall) feat Youssou N’Dour begins with country music emphasizing double and triple height. The song talks about Burna’s struggle, his journey and the challenges he faced. Youssou N’Dour a musical veteran, brought along with him his traditional flow, in a unique way and the language was unique. There is no other sound like his. P. Diddy summarizes the closure with comparison between blacks and White.

ALARM COCK

Stream Audio: Alarm Clock

This song is the second track being released, simultaneously from the first track. Alarm Clock is a call to the awakening of his sound.

WAY TOO BIG

Stream Audio: All Too Big

This is that song that speaks about his thoughts that surround his life and does well to reveal the greatness of his personality.

BEBO

Stream Audio: Bebo

This is a sleepy Afrobeat song. You just want to dance to the sound of high life and the strings that go with it, subtle and groovy.

WONDEFUL

Stream Audio: Wonderful

This is the first song released outside the album, an accapella with sounds from the Cape of GoodHope mixed with language from Niger. Dope song you’d have to admit.

ONYEKA

Stream Audio: Onyeka

This one feels like Burna boy was on stage, the sounds and the arrangement of the songs are amazing. Get a beer in this one, and get better with the love of your life aside. This is the new king of the school, he is Burna.

NAUGHTY BY NATURE

Stream Audio: Naughty By Nature

This song reveals his early days, struggles and how he survived. It a song every young and upcoming artist would resonate with, Burna went deep on this one and it was great.

 COMMA

Stream Audio: Comm

This song brings a whole lot different vibe to the table, it one where you can’t listen to on your sit, you need to bang to the song. You either step in with your dancing shoes or forget it… The song is definitely a vibe.

NO FIT VEX

Stream Audio: No fit vex

 This is a song that emphasizes the need for space, understanding and tolerance during life. The need for a good heart and that in fact, each one has his own. This brings you to logical meditation

 23

Stream Audio: 23

This is a song on Michael Jordan’s amazing number, 23 is just a Burna boy music scene and had to be included in the song.

 TIME FLIES

Stream Audio: Time flies

This is a hot music on burnfire in the safari. He had to bring a Kenyan team, Santi Sol. This energizes, passes and sleeps. The situation in East Africa is very difficult and undeniable, ending with a statement of black beauty.

MONSTER YOU MADE

Stream Audio: Monster you made

This is a revolutionary song and describes the neglect of government, the effect of colonialism and the coming unrest that may follow. He includes Chris Martin of Cold Play who is famous for his strong political stance and his cunning voice would not have been better suited for the chorus.

 WETIN DE SUP

Stream Audio: Monster you made

This song is a violent mode of Burna boy. He threw his PH (Port Harcourt) mental state into a song, making the song rugged and real.

 REAL LIFE

Stream Audio: Real life

This one is a completely amazing song with a British artist with his addictive verses. Real life is a song about meditation on the state of life itself, self, struggle and blessings we can never count.

 BANK ON IT

Stream Audio: Bank on it

This song emphasizes good health and the need for kindness to others. Burna was preaching about a man’s love for himself and his brother in this one, great song by Burna.
