Burna Boy Shares New Song “Dangote” + Set to Launch US Tour

Today, Afrofusion artist Burna Boy returns to share a new song. “Dangote” is the first offering of new music from Burna Boy in 2019, opening a new chapter after a year that saw him release his celebrated 2018 mixtape Outside and showcase his borderless Afrofusion sound for the rest of the world. The new track showcases a more refined sound from Burna Boy, incorporating a saxophone and horns into an Afrofusion groove.

“Dangote” is the first taste to what will be a big year of new music for Burna Boy and precedes him embarking on a headlining US tour beginning April 1 in Boston, with shows across the country including performances at both weekends of Coachella.

Listen to the track below.

Born in Port Harcourt City, Burna Boy began producing music at just 10 years old, influenced by his dancehall and reggae-loving father. After graduating from school, Burna relocated to London for University, but dropped out and returned to Nigeria two years later to pursure his passion of music. Burna’s grandfather managed Fela Kuti for the first 15 years of his career, which helped shape Burna’s sound and his place in music as a representative of Nigeria, and more broadly Africa, to the world with the enigmatic genre he coined, Afrofusion.

Hear “Dangote” above and stay tuned for more from Burna Boy coming soon.

Upcoming Tour Dates:

4/1 – Boston, MA @ Brighton Music Hall
4/3 – Silver Springs, MD @ The Fillmore
4/7 – Chicago, IL @ Thalia Hall
4/10 – Denver, CO @ Bluebird Theater
4/14 – Indio, CA @ Coachella
4/17 – San Francisco, CA @ Slim’s
4/21 – Indio, CA @ Coachella
