Off of Beyonce‘s recently released album, we get to sample this song titled “Ja Ara E” on which she featured Burna Boy, the reigning BET International Artiste of the year and they made a good pair on this.
Produced by Beyonce herself, this song is one of the standout songs among those that had African artistes on them. In most of the songs, delightful as they are, you get the feeling that they had to abandon their normal selves and style to fit an international audience. Not Burna Boy.
On this song, the African Giant stayed true to self and you can hardly tell that he is singing for a different audience on this as he did it the same way he would have done for any Nigerian audience and fans will no doubt appreciate this.
The song title loosely means to wisen up and this had been a frequent theme in Burna Boy‘s songs. He is either telling you to loosen up or telling you, like on this, to wisen up and get up or get left behind. We love this one and recommend listening.
