Zlatan and Burna Boy Drop Another Banger With New Single 'Gbeku'

The "Killin' Dem" collaborators have done it again.

Nigerian artists Zlatan and Burna Boy link up for another standout collaboration "Gbeku," from the former's upcoming album Zanku: The Album.

Following their hit release earlier this year with the massive "Killin' Dem," the two release another dance-worthy track complete with percussion-heavy production and lyrics that also serve as dance instructions. While "Killin' Dem" was made to zanku to, "Gbeku" introduces a new dance from the buzzing artist.

Check out a clip of him doing the dance below.


On "Gbeku," Burna Boy shines one the chorus, singing rhythmically in Yoruba while Zlatan delivers animated verses in his raspy vocals throughout. They prove once again that they make for a stellar musical duo.

Zlatan is on a roll, as the artist recently picked up three trophies at the AFRIMMA awards in Dallas. He released the humorous music video for "Yeye Boyfriend" last week, and with his debut album on the way soon, it's clear the artist is having a fruitful year.

Listen to "Gbeku" below.

He became a household name in the 2000s as he spearheaded the motswako movement, propelling it to the mainstream and solidifying his legendary status in the process.
