LOVE, DAMINI follows the African Giant’s Grammy Award Winning album, Twice As Tall, and was written as Burna Boy’s letter to his fans. Each track was significant due to real-life events that have impacted Burna. The record marks a coming of age into his and captures Burna Boy’s new sound as he turns the page on a new musical era. In his recent Billboard cover story, Burna exclusively spoke to the album’s meaning.

The single has reached nearly 2 billion streams worldwide and gained virality on TikTok. Burna Boy performed “Last Last” and “Kilometre” at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards.
