Album Review: "Love, Damini" by Burna Boy (8/10)

Burna Boy

Love, Damini

Bad Habit/Atlantic Records
Producers: Various

If you are unfamiliar, Burna Boy is a multi- award-winning (2020’s Twice As Tall earned Best Global Music Album Grammy) Afrobeat pioneer and a living legend. Love, Damini provides a global party, dancing through hardships and heartbreak. The album does not show too much variation—at 19 tracks, the songs repeat a familiar formula. Most impressive, alongside Burna Boy’s storytelling ability, is the range of artists who mesh so well as features, including: J Balvin, Kehlani, Ed Sheerhan and two songs with pioneers Ladysmith Black Mambazo
