Is The Best Burna Boy Song Since “Twice As Tall” – DO YOU AGREE?

Burna Boy’s latest single, “Last Last” is the top track in Nigeria for the third straight day.
For the first time in months, it looks like Odogwu might have something.

Before now, the Grammy-winning singer has struggled to put out an impressive single to follow up his 2020 album, “Twice As Tall.” After tweaking his sound a little to make the Grammy campaign work, he had trouble getting people to feel the real Burna again.

But with “Last Last,” slated to be the first single off his forthcoming studio album, “Love, Damini,” fans are again embracing the personal touch that Burna Boy brings with his music. This same approach hasn’t worked quite well for others, obviously.

The thing about “Last Last” is that it’s a song that almost everyone can relate to. The concept of “breakfast” (a symbol of heartbreak in Nigerian pop culture) being a national cake isn’t something new to any listener. And the very fact that Burna Boy is opening up, perhaps for the first time, about a heartbreak makes the song even more powerful.

Burna Boy used that opportunity to tell his story and make it known that he has been through a lot too, even though all seems to be going well for him. A failed relationship, and a near-death experience, are the two main themes on “Last Last.”

But away from the thematic expression, the lyricism is pretty simple. He stuck with simple words, simple slang, and catchy stuff. “E don cast,” “last last,” and “I need igbo and shayo” have all quickly become popular in the streets because these are things people would say ordinarily before. With a Burna Boy song, it sounds even more hip and fans won’t mind singing along to that.

“Last Last” has brought back the Burna Boy’s glory. Something songs like “Kilometre” and “Question” couldn’t do for him. This is perhaps his best song since the “Twice As Tall” era.
