Burna Boy and J Hus Link Up For This New Banger, 'Sekkle Down'

Burna and J Hus wrote your new favorite jam.

Burna Boy connects with British-Gambian J Hus—who's been buzzing this year with "Did You See" and his debut Common Sense—for "Sekkle Down."


The new track is as good as they come. It plays like a fine marriage of Burna's dancehall style, J Hus' laid-back delivery and a afrobeats-meets-Caribbean beat that's sure to get your feet moving while Burna sings about an Ethiopian girl he has his eye on (among others).

Burna Boy's just coming off releasing another impressive collaboration and must-watch music video with British-Ghanaian producer Juls in "Gwarn."

Check out the cover artwork for "Sekkle Down" above (who's been making these awesome covers for Burna lately, by the way?) and stream the new single below. Purchase the track on all outlets here.
