Burna Boy Throws A Mansion Party In The Video For 'Rockstar'

Watch the music video for Nigerian star Burna Boy's highly poppy single "Rockstar," produced by Chopstix.

Nigeria's Burna Boy tried on some new sounds in his recent Chopstix-produced single "Rockstar," a light rock and highly poppy take on his signature dancehall style. In the new music video for the track, Burna sings from his 1 Burna Ave. mansion surrounded by girls as he dons a Hugh Hefner robe. The whole affair then turns into a backyard house party packed with segway posse rides, a soccer match and nighttime concert — pretty much just a lighthearted clip to match the tone of the single. For more from Burna Boy, check out his huge collaboration alongside South Africa's AKA & Da Les “All Eyes On Me.” We're still waiting on official news about the follow-up to his hit-stacked follow-up to 2013 full-length L.I.F.E (Leaving an Impact For Eternity). Watch the Godfather Productions-directed video for "Rockstar" below and download the previously featured track.

A 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which rattled Mexico City on September 19, was felt as far down as Zapotalito, and the very next morning, its Black, Indigenous and poor Mestizo residents, who depend on the area's handful of lagoons for food and commerce, woke up to an awful smell and that terrible scene of floating fish.
