Afrobeats has once again shaken the world as Legendary British singer, pianist and composer Sir Elton John has expressed his desire to make music with The African Giant; Burna Boy.
The Rocketman expressed his desire to work with Burna Boy on his Apple music 1 “Rocket Hour” session. The conversation ranged from the growth of African music and onwards towards his latest Album “Love Damini”.
Somewhere in the conversation, Elton John then mentioned how Burna Boy’s Music makes him happy and that he would be interested in making music with him in the near future. In his own words:
I’M ON A WORLD TOUR AT THE MOMENT.
BUT WHEN THINGS CALM DOWN, IF YOU EVER WANT TO DO A SONG WITH ME, I’D BE…
YOU ARE THE ONE ARTIST THAT I REALLY WOULD LOVE TO DO SOMETHING WITH, BECAUSE YOU REALLY MAKE ME HAPPY, AND YOUR MUSIC IS JUST SO FANTASTIC.
I’VE PLAYED EIGHT TRACKS OF YOU ALREADY ON THE ROCKET HOUR.
SO, WE GO BACK A LONG WAY ON THE ROCKET HOUR WITH YOU.
I WOULD LOVE ONE DAY TO CATCH UP AND DO SOMETHING IN THE STUDIO WITH YOU. IT WOULD BE AN HONOR FOR ME TO DO THAT.
For the kids in the back (As if I old, but I know this because I have great taste in music); Sir Elton John is as legendary as it gets, being in a conversation with him alone is BIG. The Rocket Man is waaaay up there!!! There are similarities between Burna Boy and EJ when it comes to their Charisma as well as their Larger than life image.
It is amazing to see this happening.
