Burna Boy, Juls - Gwarn

Best New Music: Juls and Burna Boy are as cool as the arctic on “Gwarn”

Earlier this year, Burna Boy and producer, Juls gave us the first taste of an unmistakable sonic synergy on “Rock Your Body”, our best new music from May. In a way, this already pre-wires expectation for “Gwarn”, their latest collaboration, but there was no way to anticipate the track’s edgy smoothness or Burna Boy’s uber laidback sub-woofer delivery. Juls has always favoured the use of acoustics from his days with Mr Eazi, the sleekness of “Gwarn”, however, is in a lightness of touch, a deft skill the producer weaves along with Burna Boy’s melody chord-for-chord. With Burna on verse and hook and low drums to set the mood, the sensual central focus of “Gwarn” is decidedly preset. The rest of the track sails like a boat on the Nile, peaking at a guitar solo outro that feels like 4 AM in the morning. “Gwarn” tips into the same collection of Burna Boy’s bedroom music catalog, bearing mark of all the nuances fans have come to love of his under covers Afro-fusion blues.
