Nigerian genius artist Burna Boy has handled his second Grammy assignment because of his “Twice As Tall” collection.
The artist was designated under the World Music Album close by different performers like Antibalas, Bebel Gilberto, Anoushka Shankar and Tianariwen.
This is the second year straight that the artist is getting a designation in this class.
With this nomination for the 2021 Grammy awards, he has another shot at bringing home the much-coveted award.
Twice As Tall is a 15-track album which was released on August 14th is a follow up to his critically acclaimed 2019 album “African Giant”.
Burna Boy says the album is “a journey through a bunch of emotions and energies at different points in time. It has now morphed into something bigger than me. It serves as a bridge for mankind to show that we’re all different but still very much the same.”
Burna travels through socio-conscious terrains throughout the project, harping on failed Afro-political agenda, underdevelopment, poverty, Western imperialism, among other Afro-tailored societal woes.
He acknowledged that the project is an extension of his Pan-African agenda on the Grammy-nominated African Giant album.
The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards is slated to hold on January 31, 2021 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. It will recognize the best recordings, compositions, and artists of the eligibility year, running from September 1, 2019, to August 31, 2020.
