Watch Burna Boy’s New Video For ‘City Boy’
Burna Boy has shared the official music video for fan favourite song City Boys from his acclaimed, seventh studio album I Told Them… The City Boy video was directed by 20K with a quick cameo from Quavo and you can watch it in full below.
The global star again made history with the release of last month’s 15-track I Told Them… after it debuted at No.1 on the Official U.K. Albums chart, becoming the first international African artist to earn the title, and debuting at No.1 in 55 countries on Apple Music. He also went on to make his third appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 with the summer anthem Talibans II with Byron Messia.
Burna Boy’s immense success and impact on the global music scene throughout 2023 is highlighted by his recent seven nominations at the 2023 BET Hip-Hop Awards including Hip-Hop Artist of the Year, Best Live Performer, Lyricist of the Year, Best Hip Hop Video, Best Collaboration, Song Of The Year, and Hustler Of The Year.
I Told Them… was also accompanied by a special edition magazine. The exclusive piece is meant to serve as a collector’s item/special keepsake for fans. From front to back, the magazine featured never-before-seen content including a conversation between Burna Boy and RZA (of the Wu-Tang Clan), articles written by his grandfather (former manager of the legendary Fela Kuti), photos from throughout the making of the album, and more.
Earlier this year, Burna Boy chalked up another exclusive milestone with a sold-out show at New York City’s Citi Field stadium. Becoming the first African artist in history to sell out a stadium in the U.S., the Nigerian showman commanded a crowd of more than 40,000 fans, including celebs like Busta Rhymes, SZA, NBA star Mo Bamba, NFL star Larry Ogunjobi, and British rapper Dave, who also joined Burna Boy on stage for a special performance of their hit song Location.
