Twice As Tall features a number of musical heavyweights and talents namely Senegalese musician Youssou N'Dour, Kenyan Afro-pop sensation Sauti Sol, British-Nigerian grime rapper Stormzy, Coldplay's Chris Martin and American hip-hop trio Naughty By Nature. The project was produced by none other than Diddy, Mama Burna (Bosede Ogulu) and Burna Boy himself.


In this latest album, Burna Boy experiments a lot more with what we've come to know as his signature Afrobeats sound. He borrows elements from different genres such as Afro-house, Afro-pop, rock and several others. We've definitely earmarked "Onyeka (Baby)", "Comma", "Time Flies" featuring Sauti Sol, "Alarm Clock" and "Wonderful" as favourites. The latter, was released shortly before the entire project dropped and has been setting the internet ablaze.

Speaking about the new project in a recent interview, Burna Boy says, "Twice As Tall is the album about a period of time in my life." He goes on to add that, "It's the album about the struggle for freedom. It's the album about life in general, real life, good times, bad times, happy times, sad times, great times."
