Burn Boy Here to 'Pull Up' Standards
26 July 2019
By Kabura Ng'ang'a
Towards the end of last week, Burna asked on twitter if we were ready for new music on Monday of this week. We the fans were ready for the drop but definitely not braced for the drip. One day late but still, not ready. Burna Boy dropped his new heat ‘Pull Up’.
Pull up is a love story told against simple instrumentation with a bit of complex arrangement. The whole song is layered on some percussions and strong hints of an acoustic guitar. It borrows some adlibs from Nelly and Kelly’s dilemma hit song, ‘oooh’ that drop within the song and create what sounds like another instrument altogether. The whole song is Burna dropping some assurance to his love interest that he is there to stay and watch the love blossom into something she can also trust.
Pull up is a pull from his forthcoming album ‘African Giant’ which he is teasing to drop on the 26th of this month. Are we ready for Burna’s drip though?
