M.anifest Enlists Burna Boy for New Single 'Tomorrow'

Check out the music video for the feel-good track, from M.anifest's upcoming project 'The Gamble.'

Ghanaian rapper M.anifest enlists Grammy-nominated Burna Boy—who is fresh off a standout feature on Stormzy's "Own It"—for his latest song and music video "Tomorrow" from his upcoming album The Gamble.

The mid-tempo love song is the latest collaboration from the two artists, who worked together on the socially-charged track "Another Story" from Burna Boy's African Giant album. The artists are at a change of pace on "Tomorrow" which sees them singing lovingly about living life to the fullest, since "tomorrow isn't promised," atop airy production.


The colorful music video sees the artist in a tropical setting, serenading their love interests. Burna Boy shines on the chorus, while M.anifest delivers verses that highlight his skillful flow. The video was directed by Apagnawen Annankra and Scilla Owusu.

M.anifest has remained consistent throughout 2019, working with several artists and appearing earlier this year on Tim Westwood where he dropped a memorable freestyle that had many talking once again about his skillful lyricism. The artist is set to drop his new album The Gamble this Friday, November 28 so be on the lookout for it. It's his first release since 2016's Nowhere Cool, which received positive reviews.

Check out the music video for 'Tomorrow" up above.
