Four years ago, Burna Boy & DJ Spinall teamed up for the indelible hit, "Gba Gbe E", which remains one of the defining songs in Burna's career. That's why it's such a shocker that the Burna-assisted "Serious" — the standout single off DJ Spinall's 2018 album, Iyanu — flew under the radar.
In recent times, we've witnessed a wave of DJs delivering star-led hits, and none have been more consistent than Spinall. That's why on the fantastic "Serious", Burna Boy doesn't hesitate to remind everyone that he and Spinall were the first to hop on this trend with "Gba Gbe E".
Against a bolshy and authoritative beat, Burna Boy samples nostalgic songs such as Busta Rhymes' "Dangerous" and "Cluck Cluck" by Product G&B, adding his afro-fusion feel to it. Clearly, he and DJ Spinall have great synergy, and we'll need them to continue making songs together.
