Burna Boy has landed a Grammy Award nomination for his new album Twice As Tall – his second in two years.

Twice As Tall has been nominated for the Best Global Music Album alongside four others.

They are “Fu Chronicles,” by Antibalas a Brooklyn based Afrobeat band, “Agora,” by Bebel Gilberto, a Brazilian singer, “Love Letters,” by Anoushka Shankar, a British Indian sitar player and “Amadjar,” by Tinariwen, a band in Northern Mali.

Twice As Tall released on August 14, 2020, is a 15 track album executively produced by American singer and songwriter Diddy and Burna Boy’s mum and manager, Bose Ogulu.

It features British rapper Stormzy, Senegalese singer and songwriter  Youssou N’Dour and Kenya’s Sauti Sol.

It also features American producer and singer Chris Martin on the hit Monsters You Made that went viral during the EndSARS movement and protests in October.

This follows a year after he was first nominated for his fourth studio album African Giant released on July 26, 2019.

Burna Boy lost the award to Angelique Kidjo who took home her fourth Grammy for her album Celia.
