Burna Boy To Feature On Stormzy’s Upcoming Album, “Heavy Is The Head”

Another high-charting single is on the horizon for the African Giant

Back in June, Stormzy made history as the first UK rapper to headline the longstanding British festival, Glastonbury. The top billing showcased Stormzy as a leader of the UK’s thrilling rap scene, and as a nod to that historic feat, the rapper has just announced a new album, ‘Heavy is the Head (H.I.T.H)’. The cover art sees him wearing a crown and looking down at the Union Jack stab-proof vest he wore during his triumphant set.

While the album is set to feature high-profile guests like H.E.R, Headie One and Tiana Major9, one of the more anticipated tracks is “Own It”, Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy. With the combination of Stormzy’s prominence, Ed Sheeran’s prestige as a commercial behemoth, and Burna Boy’s status as a crossover star, the cut could very easily soar up the charts quickly.

Earlier this year, Burna Boy collaborated with Dave on “Location”, a smash hit off Dave’s debut album, ‘Psychodrama’, which quickly rocketed up the UK singles charts. He’s followed up by collaborating with UK singers Jorja Smith and Mahalia, for infectious summer slappers, and he recently made a standout appearance on Wretch 32’s “All In”, off the rappers recent album, ‘Upon Reflection’. The reception and successes of these songs point to another 2019 win for Burna in the UK.

‘H.I.T.H’ is Stormzy’s sophomore album, following his 2017 debut, ‘Gang Signs & Prayers’. It is scheduled for release on December 13. You can take a look at the cover art and tracklist below.
