Burna Boy teams up with J Hus for the groovy "Sekkle Down"

Coming on the heels of his track "Koni Baje," released last Friday, Burna Boy returns with "Sekkle Down." Both tracks appear on the aritst's forthcoming mixtape Outside.

The Nigerian reggae-dancehall artist teams up with U.K. act J Hus on this latest jam. The Caribbean tinged "Sekkle Down" (produced by Jae5) has the mid-tempo, minimalistic vibe that is currently catching fire. In usual fashion Burna Boy comes through with his unique brand of dancehall performance that has made him a star in Nigeria and beyond. He definitely knows his roots and doesn't hide it. J Hus's assist on the second verse is pure J Hus in his usual laissez faire performance and descriptive lyrics.

Influenced at a very young age by his father's dancehall and reggae records, the Port Harcourt city-born act has been steadily riding the wave of his unique brand of dancehall-influenced afrocentric music, a blend which he calls afrofusion. Fully formed as an artist who doesn't confirm to industry rules, Burna has taken strides to birth a sound that represents Nigeria, and more broadly, Africa. A little fun fact: He was recently featured on Drake's project More Life on the track titled "Get It Together" ft. Jorja Smith.
