21 Savage has been called upon to add some Atlanta flair to the remix of Burna Boy’s new single, “Sittin’ on Top of the World” — check it out below.
“I can help you shit on anybody you ever hated (21)/ Put you in baguettes, got you feelin’ like you made it (21)/ Everything advanced, nothing that I do is basic/ Me and Rolls Royce on a first-name basis/ Liquor with no chaser (Yeah)/ Only give her hundreds, ’cause she hate seein’ new faces (21),” 21 Savage spits over the infectious track.
He continues: “Know she one of mine by the stones in the bracelet/ Love money, n-gga see her hollar, they don’t say shit (On God)/ She told me to pay for it, now she backin’ it up/ Used to date a ball player, but they wrappin’ it up/ Got her in the penthouse, and I’m smackin’ it up/ They gon’ point you to the top if you askin’ for us (21).”
Check out the remix below:
“Top of the World,” is the second record that Burna Boy has utilized from the iconic production catalog of Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, with the first being Toni Braxton’s 2000 hit, “He Wasn’t Man Enough,” which Burna flipped and made into the 2022 summer anthem “Last Last.”
Taking to Twitter last month, Bobby Digital sang the praises of the Grammy Award-winning artist, claiming that he has something that few, if any, other artists have. “Burna is carving out his own unique chamber. His new splash is something special,” he wrote.
The producer was a guest on Amazon Music’s Rotation Roundtables with Speedy Morman, Nyla Symone, Rob Markman and Gabe P in May. During the interview, Swizz made a bold statement about his role in bringing Afrobeats to the U.S. audience.
“See, the key thing that you said was you got on a plane and you went to Ghana and now you’re stuck on Afrobeats,” he said. “I introduced Wizkid to America. I was the first person to play his song. Me and my wife were on a trip and we danced to his song.”
“[I was the] first person to bring Burna Boy to the States. Actually, he had a Ruff Ryders bandana on and I introduced him on the stage. When I was playing Fela Kuti, people thought I was being too African, and that’s how ignorant the energy was at that time.
“But I didn’t let that stop me from moving what I’m moving because it is what it is. It’s all educational. So we can’t be scared of the educational journey of something that sound different or feels different. So for me traveling the world, it’s a whole like — I can’t wait for people to listen to Ebo Taylor.”
He added: “It’s piercing through, by the way. People are more open-minded — they just need the right entry point.”
