Burna Boy’s “Twice As Tall” Ranks at No. 7 on NY Times ‘Best Album of 2020’

Published

Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu keeps reaching new heights and milestones as the days pass by. The self proclaimed African Giant fifth studio-album – “Twice As Tall” was released on August 3rd amid the corona virus but that did not stop it from being massively played and enjoyed by fans of his music all around the world.

The current ranking of albums by American Journalism firm, NY Times is a proof of the above statement. NY Times ranks Burna Boy’s “Twice As Tall” album among their Top 10 albums of 2020, placing it 7th on the list.

The excerpt from NY Times reads: 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.

This can be added to the achievement shelf (as it may) for Burna Boy; last week (November 23-29) Burna Boy was nominated a second time in successive years for the Grammy Awards and recently his “Twice As Tall” album became the most streamed Nigerian album on Spotify for this year with over 60 million streams.
