Burnaboy is set to release his new album, ‘African Giant’ in August this year, after having a listening party in the US a few weeks ago. To promote the album, Burna had a major radio interview and appearance on Apple Music’s Beats 1 show hosted by British radio host, Julie Adenuga.
Burna has also been chosen as Apple Music’s up next artist, with an exclusive film dropping on the 16th of this month. Just yesterday, the award-winning singer announced to fans via his social media that they could now pre-order the album.
‘African Giant’ is Burna’s fourth album, and a follow-up to his January 2019, EP, Steel and Copper that he released with DJDS. During his interview, Burna talked about starting his year in Ghana and realizing (just during the interview) that his music reaches a diverse demographic.
He said he usually makes music for himself and does not consider it to be work, but instead, sees it as art. He also said the purpose for this album is to share a part of himself with the fans. He said, “I feel like the album is giving you a part of me at a time in my life.” Then he went on to say that he does not feel any sort of pressure about his music.
He even gave a brief glimpse into his life growing up. He said he was born into a family that liked music and surrounded by a little bit of everything but he played football as a goalie for a while. He added that he gave up on football because playing as a goal-keeper, he felt like he wasn’t really adding value.
