The ‘African Giant’ has teamed up with the Streatham rapper before on the latter’s smash hit ‘Location’ from his 2019 Mercury Prize-winning debut ‘PSYCHODRAMA’. The track currently has over 456 million plays on Spotify and is one of Dave’s most popular tracks. The duo also performed the track together at Burna Boy’s record-breaking sold-out London Stadium show in June.
Now, Dave and Burna Boy have teamed up again on ‘Cheat On Me’. The underdog anthem follows the sampling trend from Burna Boy’s recent singles, flipping London singer Kwabs’ 2015 song ‘Cheating On Me’.
In the accompanying music video, the two friends can be seen in the studio and on stage, as well as Burna’s New York and other excursions abroad.
‘Cheat On Me’ serves as the third single the Nigerian juggernaut has dropped ahead of his highly-anticipated album ‘I Told Them’. In May, he teamed up with Atlantan rapper 21 Savage for the Brandy-sampling ‘Sittin’ On Top Of The World’ and, last month, he dropped the album’s launch single ‘Big 7’.
In the press release for ‘Big 7’, ‘I Told Them…’ is heavily inspired by the ’90s hip-hop, Wu-Tang Clan’s unity, and Busta Rhymes’ innovative creative eye. The album is the follow-up to last year’s ‘Love Damini’, his sixth studio album that hosted the monstrous hit ‘Last Last’.
Burna Boy’s 7th studio album “I Told Them” will be released on 25th of August 2023.
