Burna Boy Ballets Past the Haters in the New ‘Pree Me’ Video

Watch the video for "Pree Me," the lead single from Burna Boy's '90s themed EP 'Redemption'

Burna Boy is in top paranoid sad-boy form in his new music video for “Pree Me.”


The track follows the Nigerian dancehall star as he melancholically reminisces about his enemies multiplying and scheming on him over minimal piano chords and a slow-building beat (thanks, Drake).

The single’s music video was shot in South Africa by Nick Roux and shows Burna Boy rapping in front of a wall spray-painted with his suspicious rhymes, in between scenes of ballet dancers, school boys and betrayal.

“Pree Me” is the lead single from Burna Boy’s upcoming ‘90s themed Redemption EP, which is due later this month.

The single, produced by LeriQ, originally premiered on Julie Adenuga’s Apple Beats 1 radio show.

The singer will headline his first major concert in the U.K. after a six-year ban on October 1st at the Eventim Apollo.
