Burna Boy drops new visual for “Way Too Big”
The track is taken from Burna Boy’s latest album ‘Twice As Tall.’
Back in August, Burna Boy unveiled his fifth studio album Twice As Tall, which boasted 15 tracks and additional assistance from Youssou N’Dour, Naughty by Nature, Sauti Sol, Chris Martin, and Stormzy. Today, he drops off a new visual from the well-received project for “Way Too Big,” which is produced by Diddy, LeriQ, Timbaland, and MIKE DEAN, and sees the Nigerian star singing about his current fame and success:
“I dey tell you my guy, you know my style E no be jazz, them dey sell am for eBay, if you say you get the mind, and you wanna try, you go go die iberibe, it’s been a landslide for a long time, but them no wan believe me, all of una combined…/”
Directed by Meji Alabi, the clip started with a youth in Lagos smiling at something off-camera, before things switch to Burna Boy and his many wins taking place on screen — speaking at a press conference, trading punches in a boxing match, and various advertising deals. One particular scene also shows him recreating the larger than life artwork for Twice As Tall. The clip ends with a reveal of Burna Boy’s statue, which was what the youth was looking at and assuredly seeking inspiration from.
“Getting Diddy involved — first of all — me and Diddy are now one bridge. Then, it’s like a tree; it just keeps going. … and it goes far beyond that… because — guess what — Diddy didn’t take no money from me … He gets two points royalties, which he gives back to me, so I can take care of some other shit.”
