Burna Boy – “Way Too Big”
The title of this track off his latest album “Twice As Tall” speaks for itself, Burna is way too big, cool and smart to be moving with some acts and exchanging words or proving his worth. “Because I’m way too big, way too big to be fucking with you, And be moving with you, mmm, Because I’m way too smart, way too smart to be falling in your trap”
Wizkid, Adekunle Gold, and Omah Lay need to be protected at all costs because they could be arrested for murdering this song. This was the collaboration we never knew we needed because its a huge hit. The track produced by Blaise Beatz is a perfect blend of Afrobeat and the raving Bop sound.
“Bad Influence” crooner Omah Lay starts the record with his cool hypnotizing vibe as Wizzy baby took over to show he is still the Daddy Yo that makes ladies Manya. AG Baby on his own part brought the Chemistry between him and Blaise Beatz on his hit song ‘Something Different’ (which we all loved) into play to spice up the new record and turn it into a Bop jam.
