Burna Boy announces new album ‘Love, Damini’ 2 years after ‘Twice as Tall’

Burna Boy has said that his next album, Love, Damini, is dropping in a matter of months.

The Nigerian sensation, according to reports, announced the project while headlining New York’s iconic Madison Square Garden on Thursday night. Love, Damini is set to be released in celebration of his 31st birthday in July; fans can pre-save the album in advance.

The new project comes two years after the release of his fifth studio album, Twice as Tall (2020), which earned his highest placement on the Billboard 200 chart, debuting at No. 54 on the list. His previous album, 2019’s African Giant, debuted at No. 104 on the list.

Billboard reports that Burna Boy’s album Twice as Tall topped the World Albums tally, where it charted for 12 weeks. African Giant was also a top 10 hit, peaking at No. 6 on the World Albums list, where it charted for a whopping 36 weeks. Burna Boy has also appeared on the Top Triller Global chart five times, with his collaborative track “Miss You Bad” with fellow Nigerian artist Mr. Eazi earning the No. 1 spot earlier this month.

Thursday night’s concert marked the first time a Nigerian artiste has headlined Madison Square Garden.
