Burna Boy’s sought-after presence cross continentally is no longer a secret or developing story. It is a known fact considering the number of features the self-proclaimed African Giant has scored and the caliber of musicians he has partnered with. A couple of days ago, British musician and Grammy Award Winner, Sam Smith expressed their adulation for him and in quick succession, shared My Oasis, a syrupy ode to unreciprocated love articulated in their unique, signature and award-winning vocals.
Sam Smith leads the group with a charming but tragic verse floored by sweet keys and a sprinkling of Flamenco Guitars that builds up to the low bass that gives way to its intoxicating chorus which then morphs into Burna Boy’s verse. Matching Sam Smith’s sleek delivery, Burna turns in a very short but impactful verse that lingers even as the former carries on with the rest of the song.
An unlikely group, Burna Boy and Sam Smith do an impressive job convincing us that music has no boundaries and is only united by a common interest.
