#BumpThis: Burna Boy’s “My Money, My Baby”

November 18, 2019

There’s so much new music being released that it’s hard for even the most loyal fans to wade through the trash to find the gems. That’s why we’ve created #BumpThis – a Friday series that features new songs, by and featuring Nigerians, that you absolutely need to hear.


Burna Boy — “My Money, My Baby”

Burna Boy has had a monumental 2019, mostly due to the success of his career-best album, African Giant. Well, the afro-fusion star has continued his winning streak, appearing on the star-studded soundtrack for upcoming Oscar-hopeful, Queen & Slim. 

On the Afrobeat track, “My Money, My Baby”, Burna Boy samples Fela’s “Shakara”, and the outcome is unsurprisingly fantastic. His performance on the song has a raw, freewheeling nature to it, making it one of the most instantly memorable things he’s done this year.

Since Queen & Slim follows the story of a black couple on the run from the police — reminiscent of the iconic tale of Bonnie and Clyde — it makes sense that “My Money, My Baby” is all about Burna Boy and his lover becoming felons after he kills someone.
