Burna Boy shares performances for Vevo Ctrl
Vevo announces Burna Boy as the next artist in their new Ctrl series with performances of “Anybody” & “Collateral Damage” premiering today. Vevo’s Ctrl series highlights the work of hard-hitting, cutting-edge musicians making an impact in today’s music scene – both emerging and established. These artists demand attention, and Vevo’s Ctrl shines a deserving spotlight. Shot in Vevo’s Brooklyn studio, Burna Boy’s performances follow sessions from Rick Ross, NAV, Flipp Dinero and A$AP Ferg.
Watch “Anybody” above & “Collateral Damage” below.
With his fusion of dancehall, reggae, Afrobeat, and pop, Burna Boy emerged in the early part of the 2010s as one of Nigeria’s fastest rising stars. The LeriQ-produced 2012 single, “Like to Party,” proved to be his breakout track and paved the way for his full-length debut, L.I.F.E., a year later. His international exposure widened with 2018’s “Outside” which hit #3 on the Billboard Reggae chart. In advance of his next LP, 2019’s African Giant, Burna made his first appearance at Coachella.
