Fall Out Boy announces release date for ‘Mania’ and a Burna Boy feature

Afro-fusion to the world.

There has never been a better time to be a fan of music in Nigeria. Internationally celebrated homegrown artists are not only now a norm, their presence in the mainstream space has also created a feedback loop for collaborations with genres outside of the soundscape.


Burna Boy is currently enjoying some of this spotlight for African music, has fronted himself as an Afro-Fusion artist. As such, it is not is not odd that after working through collaborations with A.I on “Chilling Chillin”, Juls on “Gwarn”, and more recently, with Jidenna, on “A Little Bit Of More” remix, that Burna’s new collaboration would be with American rock band, Fall Out Boy.

Fall Out Boy has Burna Boy as a feature on their highly anticipated 7th studio album, Mania, maintaining the Afro-Fusion singer’s growing reputation for knowing how to be at his best when he’s genre-blending. The ten track album was originally scheduled to arrive in September, but was delayed by the band because it wasn’t ready. They revealed via their cheekily named IsManiaDoneYet.com website on Monday that the album is done and will finally be released on the 19th of January.

Of the 10-tracklist, “Sunshine Riptide” featuring Burna Boy is the only track with a featured artist. You can see the full tracklist below.
