His performance with other musicians such as Lido Pimienta, Poppy, Rufus Wainwright, and more will be livestreamed on GRAMMY.com on March 14.
Burna Boy aside this great honour of performing at the Grammys premiere ceremony also has a nomination at the 63rd annual ceremony.
He was nominated in the Best Global Music Category alongside Tuareg desert rock group Tinariwen, NYC afrobeat outfit Antibalas, Brazilian-American Bebel Gilberto, and British-Indian sitar player Anoushka Shankar.
The Best Global Music Category, previously known as the international category of Best World Music Album, was renamed to “make it more modern and inclusive.”
This is Burna Boy’s second Grammy nomination. His previous album, African Giant, was nominated at the 62nd Grammy Awards for ‘Best World Music Album’ but he lost the award to Angélique Kidjo.
