What was the inspiration?
In May 2022, Burna told Billboard that the inspiration behind his album is his personal sign off style.
“That’s how I like to sign all my letters, because I didn’t know the proper [signoff].”, says Burna Boy, “It’s a bit personal [because] it’s bringing you into my head on my birthday — when you turn 31 and ain’t got no kids, everything is going good and bad at the same time. You reflect and then you get as lit as possible. Then you sleep and wake up and reflect again. I’m reflecting on everything — what I’m doing and what’s happening where I’m from. Where I’m from is a part of where I’m going.”
The album’s summer tour will kick off on July 17 2022 in Barbados, followed by stops in Chicago, Houston, and Atlanta
