Sittin’ On Top Of The World
Burna Boy (Ft. 21 Savage)
Burna Boy and 21 Savage appreciate ’90s female R&B more than us.
In my humble opinion, one of the best songs from this decade is “Last Last.” The way Burna Boy merges Toni Braxton’s vocals from “He Wasn’t Man Enough” with his own powerful vocals is amazing. Recently, Burna Boy tried to use that same exact formula for his new single “Sittin’ On Top Of The World” with 21 Savage.
“Sittin’ On Top Of The World” flips Brandy & Mase’s popular hit “Top of the World.” As a matter of fact, you get a chance to hear Brandy’s vocals from the original version. For the most part, though, Burna Boy does the cooking. Not only does he hit us with some infectious adlibs and strong vocals throughout, but his lyrics also indicate that he knows that Chilvary isn’t dead. As for 21 Savage, he hits us with a sly-ass verse that has him sounding like the dude that swept your woman off her feet. I don’t love the song, but I do appreciate the nostalgic feel it gives off.
Burna Boy needs a former female R&B star just as much as Bron needs shooters around him.
