The Nigerian singer-songwriter’s fifth album is out this Friday (Aug. 14) and features Stormzy and Coldplay’s Chris Martin among the 15-song tracklist. The collection follows last year’s Grammy-nominated African Giant.
Twice As Tall is executive-produced by Diddy, Bosede Ogulu, and Burna Boy. The record includes recent single Wonderful, while production includes contributions from Nigeria’s Spaceship Collective, Mike Dean, Telz, Timbaland, Jae5, and more.
Mostly recorded in Lagos during lockdown, the record is described in a press release as “a beautiful mélange of sounds… a pure, unapologetic African body of work [that] boasts of a global contemporary sound that is for everyone.”
