Superstar singer, Burna Boy has released the cover of his much-anticipated 6th studio album- Love, Damini.

The birthday-themed cover shows Burna wearing a black suit on a white shirt; with several candles laced around two beautiful-looking cakes.

The album is set to be released on Friday, July 8th – a week after he celebrated his 31st year birthday.

The album cover was shot by Nigerian/American Photographer and Creative
Director, Mikey Oshai.


He disclosed that the project would highlight his personal struggles.
“Love, Damini is a personal body of work. It’s about the ups and downs, the
growth, the L’s and W’s.

“I’m excited to share this journey and roll [it] out with you all,” he had
written.


Burna Boy recently released the full tracklist of the album which features guest
appearance from Ed Sheeran, Popcaan, Victony, J Balvin, Blxst, JHus,
Kehlani, Ladysmith, and Black Mambazo.


The 19-track album includes already released songs “Kilometre” and
international hit/chart topping single-“Last Last”; which Burna Boy revealed in
an interview that American R & B star Toni Braxton gets 60% of the royalties
from the song- a sample of Braxton’s 2000 R&B hit, ‘He Wasn’t Man
Enough’.


The African Giant promised to drop new teasers off his forthcoming “Love
Damini” album every day until the 8th July official release date
He made this known in a tweet:


“Apparently I was born just after midnight, so I’m gna be dropping teasers
everyday till release at midnight #LOVEDAMINI


Keeping to his promise, he teased Track 5 “Cloak and Dagger” in a follow-up
tweet.

    album- “For My Mind” ft. Ed Sheeran at the British star’s Wembley concert
    last week.
