Burna Boy’s: Unveiling the Secrets Behind ‘I Told Them’ Album


In a recent interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, BurnaBoy, the celebrated Nigerian singer and Grammy award-winner, opened up about the deep inspiration driving his forthcoming album, ‘I Told Them.’ During the interview, he also paid tribute to the late rapper Sidhu and renowned creative designer Virgil Abloh.

Burna Boy delved into his personal journey, his evolving perspective on Afrobeats, the pursuit of his unique success, and his remarkable collaborations with J. Cole and RZA from the Wu-Tang Clan, all in anticipation of his seventh studio album.

When asked about what sets ‘I Told Them’ apart, Burna Boy shared, “It kind of showed me exactly the way I wanted to express what I was feeling and what my unit was feeling. The spirit of my unit. This is a side that people don’t really get to see because I don’t really care for anyone to see.”

He continued, “But I felt like this time, this is a way… How do I put it? A more understandable way to pass that feeling and that energy across. And at the same time, showing you that’s… Not you. Showing everyone, really, that the combination of worlds is something that we haven’t really capitalized on. Because at the end of the day, once we’re all unified, everything else, the fruits of that just take care of everything.”

Burna Boy also shed light on the significance of the album’s title, stating, “They say a lot of times that prophets are not really recognizing their own home and shit. So this one is for the part of my own home and the people in my own home who didn’t believe or doubt it, or still doubt, or any type of thing.”

He emphasized that the album is not only for his doubters but for everyone who has followed his journey from the beginning. “You can go back to my old tweets and stuff,” he added. “I basically predicted everything that’s happening now. So this is basically that. It’s fun to tell people something is true, and they doubt it, and then they end up seeing it. There’s no greater feeling.”

When it comes to recognition, Burna Boy has a unique perspective. He expressed, “I’m not going to say I don’t want credit because everyone wants credit for what they do and shit. For me, it’s more like I want credit from places where it actually matters.”

He elaborated, “That’s the type of shit I want. I want to go somewhere where it’s like they see the work and they see everything, the journey, and everything, and they’re like, ‘This is amazing. Yeah, congratulations.’ That’s the type of shit that means something.”

Burna Boy emphasized that such recognition often eludes him in his home country, where it might not carry the same weight as in other places. He values acknowledgment from those who have no vested interests, as it truly signifies his artistic achievement.

In conclusion, Burna Boy’s journey and the inspiration behind ‘I Told Them’ reflect a profound artistic evolution, a desire for meaningful recognition, and a commitment to unifying diverse musical worlds. As fans eagerly await the release of his seventh album, it’s evident that Burna Boy’s impact on the global music scene continues to grow.
