Nigerian singer, Burna Boy has shared a shocking revelation of his hit song, “Last Last” and how American R’n’B singing legend, Toni Braxton benefits from it.
In the month of May, Burna boy released “Last Last,” ahead of his forthcoming album, Love, Damani.
The track, produced by Chopstix, features a sample of Toni Braxton’s 2000 R&B hit, “He Wasn’t Man Enough.”
Burna Boy who was a guest on Episode 174 of the Million Dollaz Worth Of Game podcast spoke about the song and how the sample happened.
According to him, he had always wanted to sample “He wasn’t Man Enough” and engaged Chopstix to work on it because he knew the producer could make it happen.
He described the experience as a special creative process.
The singer then proceeded to drop the bombshell that Toni Braxton earns 60% off the royalties thanks to the sample.
When he revealed the news, he and the interviewers proceeded to laugh about it.
When one of the interviewers consoled him about it, telling him that he makes more from selling out shows, Burna responded by saying he wasn’t complaining about it.
He stated that he doesn’t mind and hopes that she pays a visit to one of his shows.
When asked about the next genre from Africa he thinks might take over the world, Burna revealed that it would be Amapiano as it’s already taking over the global music scene.
He also stated that he wasn’t one to be freaked out by international collaborations when asked who he would love to collaborate with.
