Nigeria’s music export and Afrofusion pioneer Burna Boy premieres his first solo single following his Grammy Award-winning 2020 album, “Twice As Tall.” The song entitled “Kilometre” (written and performed by Burna Boy and produced by Chopstix) is available now with an accompanying high energy music video that features Burna Boy.

The groundbreaking Nigerian artist’s fifth studio album “Twice As Tall” proved an immediate sensation, earning more than 5 million worldwide streams within its first hour of release. Fueled by such singles as “Wonderful,” “Monsters You Made (ft. Chris Martin), “ Real Life (ft. Stormzy),” and “23,” the groundbreaking album – which features additional collaborations with Youssou N’Dour, Sauti Sol, and Naughty by Nature – debuted at #1 on Billboard’s “US World Albums” chart while receiving unprecedented worldwide critical acclaim.

Among its countless accolades, “Twice As Tall” received the 2021 Grammy Award for “Best Global Music Album,” having already made history as the first time a Nigerian artist received back-to-back nominations in the category (following 2019’s Grammy Award-nominated “African Giant”).
