Burna Boy revealed in an interview that Toni Braxton, an American R&B singer, receives 60% of the royalties from his latest single, ‘Last Last.’ Burna Boy revealed this while answering questions about how the song came to be on a podcast.
The Afrobeats megastar also revealed that, while Toni Braxton receives 60% of the royalties from the single, he was fine with it because his only concern was creating a great song.
The revelation sparked outrage on Twitter after @Nateusborne’s video went viral.
The Grammy winner revealed that he had always wanted to sample Toni Braxton’s 2000 R&B hit ‘He Wasn’t Man Enough,’ and he eventually convinced music producer Chopsticks to do so.
Since its release, ‘Last Last’ has achieved widespread success both in Nigeria and internationally, and it is the song’s popularity that contributed to the outpouring of shock on social media.
While Burna Boy is a successful digital artist, his live performances account for a significant portion of his earnings. Burna Boy, with a catalog and statesmanship that has helped him sell out arenas across Europe, wouldn’t mind foregoing a portion of his streaming pay if it meant making great singles.
