Burna Boy has spoken to Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 about working with Ed Sheeran and his new album, Love Damini.

Burna was full of praise for Ed Sheeran after the pair collaborated on new single For My Hand, “Ed is probably the most amazing guy I’ve met in my life, man. He got me because he showed nothing but love from day one. You understand? So it’s something that was really natural, you get me? And it’s one of the ones where it’s just like back to back, you get me? It’s so natural. We made like five songs on the same day. That’s how organic it was. That’s it, man. The guy’s just such a genius, man. He just knows what’s what, and when. This was the last one we did, we started working on and he was like, ‘Yeah, this is it. This is the one. This is it.’You feel me? At the time I wanted one of… There was another one I thought, ‘Okay, this could be cool.’ You feel me? ‘This should be the one.’ You get me? And then we made this one and then boom, it was just next level.”

The rapper went on to talk about his new album, Love Damini, “This is like my birthday gift to me in a way, because there’s no better gift to give myself than something personal. And literally giving a part of myself to the whole world. So it’s really special.”

Burna also gave an insight into his personal philosophy, “We are all the same yet so different. People don’t understand that’s the beauty of planet earth, man. It’s the diversity and the fact that you can go and explore and find out and learn and implement and all types of… That’s the beauty of the world, man, right down to the beginning of time, from when they discovered boats, that they could go places and find land on boats. You understand? That’s what the world was about. It’s been about.”
