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.
