Last year, Afrobeats frontrunners WizKid and Burna Boy came together for the P2J-produced “Ginger,” a track that ended up on WizKid‘s well-received fourth studio LP Made In Lagos. Today (Dec. 14), the two musical giants reconnect for “B.D’OR,” another P2J-backed offering that takes inspiration from the prestigious Ballon d’Or football (soccer) trophy:
“Penkelemess, come dey smoke cannabis, doctor say makе I pop one of this, make me fly likе say I’m Aladdin, come bring some kind melodies, omo Messi self no do pass at this, so many things inside of my jeans, I swear down e be things, e be things, penkelemess, con dey move like a disco, won ni ki ma lo latan, I be pose, I be actor, So therefore give me Ballon D’or…”
Wizkid’s fourth studio album Made In Lagos contains 14 tracks and features from Burna Boy, Skepta, Damian Marley, H.E.R., Ella Mai, Tems, and more. The week of its release, fans got to check out a new visual from the project for the P2J-produced “No Stress.” Before Made In Lagos, WizKid made his big label introduction with Sounds From The Other Side, a surely solid project that saw 12 cuts and assists from Ty Dolla $ign, Chris Brown, Major Lazer, Trey Songz, and more.
Last year, 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. As previously reported by REVOLT, Burna Boy spoke to Nigerian outlet PGM Club about how Diddy executive produced his album for free:
“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.”
Press play on “B. D’OR.”
