Coming up with hits after hits is not a lazy man’s work. It goes beyond putting up lyrics on a sheet. Good experience, good exposure, good contents and good delivery all play a vital role in bring a good song to life, they serve as spirits in a song. Burnaboy who was recently featured in Jerusalema remix had all these infused in his new hit single “Wonderful.”

“Wonderful” was released 26th June, 2020, from his upcoming ‘Twice As Tall Album, and this single was Produced by Telz.

Burnaboy has always had the palettes of creativity in combining different music genres to put up a good tune. No doubt this features manifested in the single “Wonderful.” Here, he mixed Afro fusion, Soul Reggaeton, and a bit of vocal texture, Kwaito music.

On this record, Telz created simple instrumentals with staccato melodies and a fast tempo reggaeton percussion. This made the song unique, as the sound and beat were a masterpiece of an ‘energy giving flow’. Burna’s vocals on the other hand were clear and audible, doing justice to the beat. This flow in the song was from a harmonious combo between English and other African languages within.

In keeping up with fans, Burna has always taken responsibility serving them with good music, and “Wonderful” has joined the numerous league of great songs.
