Thus far, Burna Boy has taken this year to break his yearly album cycle. Building on the success of a stellar 02 Arena concert and recent collaboration with Don Jazzy on Question. He releases the introspective single, Want It All.
Produced by Smoke Ono and Sean Silverman with an accompanied photostory visual by Adrian Yu in Los Angeles, USA, Burna’s diasporic groove and Polo’s marathon pain rap might seem like they’re at odds, but Want It All proves that they slide together seamlessly as Burna takes us to a somber atmosphere where he was roaming the streets of Port-Harcourt to becoming the first Nigerian solo artist to win a Grammy award while Polo G adds icing to an already baked cake by coming in with a hard-hitting verse plunged up with Rapid fire’s 808 as he navigates his struggles to the top.
The African Giant and Polo G’s team up becomes more magnificent as they boost this charming track and visual with cooing backup vocals of choristers towards the end of the visual, evoking an avalanche of emotions.
Profound as Want It All, this song weaves itself around you, and is given life in understated video images with blinging ornaments but powerful nonetheless in delivering its message.
On this collaboration, Burna Boy says: “I’ve been watching him for some time, and I just knew this had to get done, but it had to get done in the perfect way where the whole world gets to feel the reality of both of us.”
