Burna Boy’s sixth studio album is finally here, a little later than expected.
The Nigerian singer-long-awaited songwriter’s follow-up to 2020’s Twice as Tall, Love, Damini, came out on Friday. Burna, whose real name is Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, announced the project in April and later confirmed that it would come out on July 2, which would be his 31st birthday. After the original release date passed, Burna told fans that the album would come out a week later than planned.
Love, Damini has 19 songs, including the singles “Kilometre” and “Last Last,” which were already out. On the project, Kehlani, J Balvin, Khalid, Popcaan, J Hus, and even Ed Sheeran, who is on “For My Hand,” all make guest appearances. Last week, Burna and Sheeran sang the song at Wembley Stadium and released the official music video for it at the same time as Love, Damini.
Burna talked about the album in a May interview with Billboard. He talked about how the title and overall theme of the album came about.
You can now stream Love, Damini on Apple Music and Spotify. Burna will go on a summer tour to promote the album. The tour starts on July 17 in Barbados and makes stops in Chicago, Houston, and Atlanta.
