Sia has revealed that she has teamed up with Burna Boy for a remix of ‘Hey Boy’ from her new single, coming out later this week.
In order to make the announcement today (January 12), Sia announced that both the song and the video will be coming this Thursday (January 14). With “Pucker up,” she simply captioned the message.
The original song will feature on Sia’s upcoming February 12 album ‘Music’, which was composed to accompany her forthcoming film of the same name.
Initially released back in November of last year, ‘Hey Boy’ was followed by other songs, co-written with Dua Lipa, ‘Together’ and ‘Saved My Life.’
Now, in order to promote the album, the multiple award-winning singer, who has belted out hits like ‘Chandelier’, ‘Cheap Thrills’, ‘Titanium’ with David Guetta and ‘Diamonds’ with Rihanna,’ will now be dropping a brand new version of her already released song ‘Hey Boy’ featuring rapper Burna Boy. The songstress took to her official Twitter account to share the big news with her fans. She shared an animated poster along with the caption, “Pucker up Kiss mark “Hey Boy” ft @burnaboy song + video out Thursday – Team Sia.” Burna Boy also took to Twitter after a gap of few hours to share the good news with close to his five million followers. He captioned the post as, “’HEY BOY’ @Siafeaturing Myself dropping Thursday. Definitely One of my Favourites.”
Sia’s film ‘Music’ has been combined with a movie-inspired 14-track album that will hit the internet on February 12, 2021. However, on January 14, 2021, the latest version of the song ‘Hey Guy’, which is very much part of the new album, will hit the internet.
For their partnership, Sia and the 29-year-old hip-hop artist shared a shared artwork. The cover art is a funky and futuristic poster with a super-cool animated avatar featuring both the artists. Much as she does in her real life, Sia covers her eyes in the poster with her hair and looks confident and sexy when holding the mic. On the other side, Burna Boy was given a funky avatar and a really tall cartoon bear. As he dons a bright orange suit with a thick gold chain that says his name in bold letters, Burna Boy’s animated avatar looks dapper.
Just four tracks from the 14-track album were dropped by the singer earlier. She confirmed the album with the release of the song ‘Hey Boy’ in November. The project also contains singles such as ‘Together’,’ Bravery to Change’ and ‘Saved My Life’.
Sia and Burna Boy’s partnership came as a surprise to many users on social media. To share their enthusiasm, their loyal fans rushed to Twitter. One fan wrote, “I can’t wait, Burna boy and sia,omox100000000000000.” Another said, “Oh my God!!” Burna Kid Featuring Sia!!! Errrr! Errrr! The way I still imagine Shatta Errrr’s Collabo!!
