Burna Boy and Lilly Allen have another single coming.
Earlier this year, the Nigerian Urban Fusion act featured Grammy nominee Lily Allen on the track, ‘Heaven’s Gate’ off his “Outside”album. It is one of the standout records of the project.
The duo are set to release yet another collaboration as the British singer has released the pre-order link for her forthcoming album titled “No Shame.”
The tracklist sees Burna Boy featured on the fourth track which is titled Your Choice.
Burna Boy is only one of three artists featured on the album, alongside Giggs and Lady Chann.

Nigerian afro-fusion star, Burna Boy has done his bit to address how Nigerian music is classified and the repeated mentions of “Afrobeat”, that genre of music associated with the late great, Fela.
In an interview with Radar Radio, the artiste corrected the show’s host who referred to him as the “King of this Afrobeat scene”, responding “First of all, let me correct you, it’s not afro-beat for me, it’s afro-fusion…“
“As far as I’m concerned only Fela Kuti does Afrobeat…“, the artiste added.
Burna was on the show to promote his recently-released third studio album, “Outside”, which we described as “a statement of intent from an artiste who has his eyes set on the rest of the world“.
In recent times, as music of Nigerian origin has gained greater acceptance and commercial success around the world, journalists and cultural commentators have struggled to classify this broad range of sounds into a genre that reflects the spirit and nature of the music.
