Ahead of his highly anticipated 3rd studio album Outside, which is to be released on the 28th of January under Atlantic Records, Nigerian pop artiste Burna Boy has released a brand new single titled Heavens Gate, which features Grammy Award Nominated British singer Lily Allen.
Heaven’s Gate’s fast tempo is a departure from Burna Boy’s usual mid-tempo style and has a dancehall vibe that permeates the instrumental and Burna Boy’s vocals as he sings in patois. Injected with Lily Allen’s peculiar singing style, it is a fine blend of cockney vibes and Indian rhythm that gives the song a more diverse appeal.
Produced by Fred Gibson, Heaven’s Gate is accompanied by a colourful video with familial settings.
The video was shot on location in London, United Kingdom and features scenes where a mother cooks and dances in the kitchen and others where a family unwinds in the living room. These relatable visuals make the video unique and interesting.
