He’s also set for the release of his upcoming album, African Giant.

Speaking with Julie Adenuga, Burna Boy had this to say:

I’m super excited to be part of the Apple Music Up Next campaign, Apple continuously comes up with new initiatives to support artists globally and push the African culture. It’s an honour to be a part of this and with my African Giant album coming out soon, the timing is perfect.

My granddad was a DJ in Lagos; all the records would come to him first, I would find myself being inspired by things that I’ve heard as a kid: Nigerian music or African music, some French music or some Jamaican music. When it’s time for music to be made, it’s almost like my ancestors just come into me and then it’s them.”
