Previously a mystery, we have now uncovered how many songs are on the album. Love, Damini contained 19 songs and most of them have made headlines with two of them; “For My Hand” and “Last Last” recently receiving gold and platinum certifications respectively. If you were expecting the African Giant to level up with the same number of tracks on his new album, then you just missed it.

The Nigerian superstar has 15 tracks on his new album, just like he did with “Twice As Tall”. However, the 15 tracks are all looking pretty and promising as the titles portray. We can’t say how much we will get from the album but it is a big promise. There is also one bonus track included for your listening pleasure.

Which artists are featured on I Told Them?

Burna Boy never stops to make big things happen and he is not stopping just now. Exciting as the prospect of a new album could be for any fan of the Afrobeat beats champion, there is even more in store for lovers of his music. Burna Boy has assembled a strong contingent of international artists for I Told Them.

Appearing first on I Told Them is London-born Atlanta-based rapper 21 Savage. The “Bank Account” rapper is featured on track number 4 which is titled, “Sittin’ On Top Of The World”.

He is featured on the track titled, “Cheat On Me”.

Also, young Nigerian singer Balogun Afolabi Oluwaloseyi, known as Seyi Vibez is on the album with a feature on track number 11, titled, GIZA. Then one of the youths’ favourites, J. Cole joins the train with an appearance on track number 14, “Thanks”. The 38-year-old American rapper is one of the biggest names in rap music and a favourite of many, so it is no wonder Burna decided to feature him on the track titled, “Thanks”.

But that is not all as Jamaican-born Saints Nitts and Kitts-based dancehall artist Byron Messia also makes an epic appearance. The “Talibans” hitmaker appears on the last official track of the album, “Talibans II”. With all these big names on, I Told Them is expected to be a massive thing in the music arena for some time once released.
