American daily newspaper, New York Times, has joined the top media house’s leagues to recognize Burna Boy on the great work out in his album ‘Twice As Tall’ as it’s ranked number seven in the world.
It would be recalled that Burna Boy released the album some months ago, and it has
become one of the most-streamed albums of 2020 across all streaming platforms.
The album has earlier been recognized by the Recording Academy who nominated it for
‘Twice As Tall’ has now been ranked among the best album of 2020 in a list that saw
Taylor Swift, Sufjan Stevens, Moses Sumney, and some other big artists listed.
Writing about Burna Boy’s album, the New York Times wrote:
The Nigerian songwriter Burna Boy calls his music Afro-fusion, not the more specifically Nigerian term Afrobeats, and “Twice as Tall” lives up to that broader mandate with a profusion of sleek, diverse, constantly inventive grooves that traverse Africa and its diaspora.
Through its 15 songs, Burna Boy is by turns exuberant, pensive, confessional and political.
The bitter, furious single he released soon after nonviolent anti-corruption protesters were killed by soldiers, “20 10 20,” made a compelling postscript.
