Nigerian superstar artiste, Burna Boy has made an exclusive list of music stars set to feature in Justin Beiber’s upcoming album, Justice.
The album is set for release on Friday, March 19, 2021.
Justice is Justin Beiber’s sixth studio album.
Equally important, Burna Boy, the self-styled African Giant, is the only African artiste to make the cut. The album features a host of top acts such as Khalid, Chance the Rapper, The Kid Laroi and Dominic Fike. Others are Daniel Caesar, Giveon, BEAM and Benny Blanco.
The inclusion of Burna Boy on the much-anticipated album continues a run of eye-catching international features for the Delta-born Afrobeats star. This year, Burna Boy has already worked with other foreign acts such as Sia, Headie One and Becky.

The development has seen many talk up his Grammy Award-winning potential, as many expect Burna Boy, who was nominated for the Best Global Music Album category, to bring home the award this year after losing out to Beninoise legend, Angelique Kidjo last time.
Already, talks of the upcoming project has begun to elicit huge buzz and excitement in the music industry; especially considering the heavyweight cast of collaborations on it.
In explaining the inspiration behind the album, Bieber says he is looking to play his part in healing the world.
The Canadian-born star made this known via his verified handle on the micro-blogging site, Twitter.
‘‘In a time when there’s so much wrong with this broken planet, we all crave healing and justice for humanity. In creating this album my goal is to make music that will provide comfort; to make songs that people can relate to and connect to so they feel less alone. Suffering, injustice and pain can leave people feeling helpless. Music is a great way of reminding each other that we aren’t alone. Music can be a way to relate to one another and connect with one another.
‘‘I know that I cannot simply solve injustice by making music. But I do know that if we all do our part by using our gifts to serve this planet and each other that we are that much closer to being united.
‘‘This is me doing a small part. My part. I want to continue the conversation of what justice looks like so we can continue to heal,’’ he tweeted.
