Meanwhile, Burna Boy is one of the nominees this in the category for the ‘Best Global Music Album’ category for his ‘Twice As Tall’ album, which was released on 12 August 2020.

He was nominated alongside Tuareg desert rock group Tinariwen, NYC afrobeat outfit Antibalas, Brazilian-American Bebel Gilberto, and British-Indian sitar player Anoushka Shankar. Previously known as the international category of Best World Music Album, the category was renamed to “make it more modern and inclusive.”

This is Burna Boy’s second Grammy nomination after losing to the legendary Angelique Kidjo during the last ceremony in 2020. Considering the praises Twice as Tall has received, there are chances that he will take home the gong this year.

During the main award show, music fans will be given unprecedented digital access to GRAMMY Awards content with GRAMMY Live, which will stream internationally on GRAMMY.com and via Facebook Live, the exclusive streaming partner of GRAMMY Live.
