Burna Boy Premieres New Music Video for “23”
- The 2021 Grammy Award winner, Nigerian singer-songwriter Burna Boy has dropped a new music video for “23”.
The clip features several references to NBA icon Michael Jordan, whose jersey number gave “23” its name. Directed by Clarence Peters.
The song is included on his fifth studio album “Twice as Tall”, which was released last August. It was written by Skread and Burna Boy.
Burna Boy told Apple Music about the song, “This is shout to Michael Jordan, and the number he wore. And I think this came from when I was watching The Last Dance. I was watching that scene with Jordan describing the way he works and just how hard he goes to push those around him for greatness. I related to that so much. Even about how lonely that road is, because you may have started with a bunch of people, even some guys that were probably better than you! And that's really how it goes. There's so much sacrifice to this that people won't see.”
The album won Best Global Music Album at the 63rd Grammy Awards.
