Burnaboy, who has been nominated for four awards this year—Best Melodic Rap Performance for Sittin’ on Top of the World, Best Global Music Performance for Alone, Best African Music Performance for City Boys, and Best Global Music Album for I Told Them— returns to the Grammys stage three years after winning the Best Global Music Album for Twice As Tall at the Premiere Ceremony of the 63rd Grammy Awards. 

For the fourth year, Trevor Noah will serve as the Grammy Awards host. His best comedy album I Wish You Would is nominated for best comedy album. He is the only other Grammy host to receive a nomination in the same year Since Queen Latifah in 2005.

The 66th Grammy Awards are scheduled to air on CBS on Sunday, February 4 from 8:00 to 11:30 p.m. ET/5:00 to 8:30 p.m. PT. The event will also be streamed live and on-demand on Paramount+.

For the fourth year in a row, Fulwell 73 Productions will produce the show for the Recording Academy. Executive producers include Jesse Collins, Raj Kapoor, and Ben Winston.

This will be Burna Boy’s second Grammy performance. In 2021, he delivered a medley beamed from the iconic National Theatre owing to the pandemic.
