After securing the number one spot in the UK album charts for ‘I Told Them’, Burna Boy has unveiled the music video for one of the songs on the project, ‘City Boys’. Directed by 20K, the music video follows Burna around locations in New York, demonstrating more of a US influence in his latest work.

‘I Told Them’ is the latest chapter in Burna’s illustrious career thus far, with the artist becoming a leading light in Afrobeats and Afropop. This year in particular has seen the musician take another leap in terms of popularity, selling out stadiums on both sides of the Atlantic and growing his audience with catchy, vibrant songs that blend the genres of Afrobeat, R&B and Hip-Hop.

There is no debate now that Burna Boy is one of the biggest artists on the world stage, collaborating with huge artists and becoming a star in his own right. This has been highlighted by his seven BET Award nominations, as the artist is finally seeing recognition from the mainstream.
