The Nigerian star is nominated in the Best Global Music category.
African giant Burna Boy will perform at the Grammys 2021 pre-show, which will be live-streamed on GRAMMY.com on March 14 at 3 p.m. EST.
The premiere ceremony will be hosted by Jhene Aiko. It will begin with an ensemble of previous Grammy nominees, including Gregory Porter, the Afro-Peruvian Jazz Orchestra, Regina Carter and Kamasi Washington performing “Mercy, Mercy Me (The Ecology)” as a tribute to the late legend Marvin Gaye.
Burna Boy is nominated in the Best Global Music category at the 2021 Grammy Awards 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 Best World Music Album category, the category has been renamed to make it “more modern and inclusive.”
Other nominees include Beyoncé, Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion for Record of the Year, H.E.R for Song of the Year, Buju Banton for Best Reggae Album and more.
This is Burna Boy’s second Grammy nomination after losing to the iconic Angelique Kidjo in the last ceremony.
Considering the praise Twice as Tall has received, we hope this is the year he takes home the prize.
