African Giant Review

by Timothy Monger

Arriving just one year after 2018's well-received Outside, African Giant is the fourth full-length from Nigerian dancehall-reggae star Burna Boy. At 19 tracks, it is an overall lengthier affair than its predecessor, with a globally diverse guest list that includes American rappers Future and YG, British singer Jorja Smith, Jamaican reggae royalty Damian Marley, and African vocal icon Angélique Kidjo, among others. Citing the album as his most personal release yet, Burna Boy continues to explore his distinctive blend of Afro-beat, dancehall, reggae, pop, and road rap.
