USA: Burna Boy’s ‘Destiny’ Only African Artist To Make Biden’s Inaugural Playlist!

Burna Boy’s ‘Destiny’ has been featured on the US presidential inauguration playlist which will usher into office President-elect, Joe Biden, and Vice President-elect, Kamala Harris.

The award-winning singer’s song ‘Destiny’ will be played alongside other international artists such as Dua Lipa, Tame Impala, and Kygo. The playlist was curated by American actress Issa Rae’s record label Raedio and Derrick Jones, better known by his stage name as DJ D-Nice. American artists included on the playlist include Beyonce, Stevie Wonder, and Kendrick Lamar. 

Raedio President Benoni Tagoe said the company was honored to create the playlist. “We know that music has the power to bring people together, and after a year of national challenges and division, we hope this collection serves as an indication of a new beginning, positive change, and a reminder that music of all types is a common language.

“These songs and artists reflect the relentless spirit and rich diversity of America,” said Presidential Inaugural Committee CEO Tony Allen in a statement. “They are the score to a new chapter and will help bring people together as the Biden-Harris Administration begins its important work to unite our country,” Allen said.At 29, Burna Boy is one of Africa’s breakout stars, and his music has been sampled and featured by some of the world’s biggest artists including Fall Out Boys, Jorja Smith, and Beyoncé. His album ‘Twice as Tall’ was nominated for Best Global Music album at the upcoming Grammy awards while his debut album ‘African Giant’ was also nominated for the same award last year.
