Twice As Tall’, an album by Burna Boy, an Afrofusion singer, has topped the world albums category of the Billboard music chart.
The US-based media company, which ranks songs and albums in different genres across the globe, broke the news in a post via its Twitter page on Monday.
“@burnaboy’s ‘Twice As Tall’ debuts at No. 1 on this week’s #WorldAlbums chart,” it wrote.
he feat comes at about the same time when the album debuted at number 54 on the Billboard 200 music chart.
“@burnaboy’s ‘Twice As Tall’ debuts at No. 54 on this week’s #Billboard200,” it added.
The development further stretches what has been an impressive run for the album — which is executive-produced by Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, a US media mogul and rapper, and Bosede Ogulu, Burna Boy’s mother — since its release.
The 15-track project, which is the singer’s fifth album, was released on August 14, after failing to meet its July release date.
Burna Boy, whose real name is Damini Ogulu, has continued to pull the strings since rising to prominence in 2012 after releasing ‘Like to Party’, the lead single from his debut album.
He became a sensation across the global music landscape after releasing ‘African Giant’, his hit album, in 2019.
‘African Giant’ had amassed positive review globally and snagged several awards including ‘Album the Year’ at the 2019 AFRIMA, as well as a nomination for ‘Best World Music Album’ at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards.
