Burna Boy “Sittin’ On Top Of The World” on new single, big shows, more

Burna Boy has returned with a summer single, “Sittin’ On Top Of The World,”  which he released on June 1.

In the new song,  the Afrobeats star promises to share his riches and luxuries with a special lady.

“It’s your time, baby, get wild, baby / That’s the difference when you’re my baby / That’s how it is when you’re mine,” he sings on the chorus, encouraging his loved one to take the journey with him.

The song features a sample of “Top Of The World,” a 1998 Brandy song that also features rapper Mase.

The artiste, who is set to co-headline the 2023 UEFA Champions League Final Kick-Off Show on June 10, has been everywhere over the course of the past year  — Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty Vol. 4 fashion show, Coachella, Dreamville Music Festival, Afro Nation Miami, the 2023 NBA All-Star Game halftime show  — just to name a few events. 

Also, Jean Paul Gaultier, a fashion house strongly associated with the 1990s era, has conscripted Burna Boy to select his favourite archival styles, which were released on June 2.

This marks the Nigerian singer’s first designer collaboration, according to the Gaultier house, which teased the project by hosting a party at its headquarters for Burna Boy’s fans ahead of a Paris performance on May 20 attended by more than 40,000 people.

The two limited-edition styles, which come in four colorways, incorporate some inspiration for Burna Boy’s latest album “Love, Damini” — especially the heart-shaped details and the red lenses.
