Burna Boy Wins Best Global Music Album For 'Twice As Tall'

Burna Boy Twice as Tall won the award formerly known as Best World Music Album over records by Tinariwen, Antibalas, and others.

Burna Boy won Best Global Music Album at the 2021 Grammy Awards. His album Twice as Tall won the award over records by Antibalas (FU Chronicles), Bebel Gilberto (Agora), Anoushka Shankar (Love Letters), and Tinariwen (Amadjar). The win marks Burna Boy’s first Grammy Award after being nominated last year. At the end of the Premiere Ceremony, Burna Boy performed music from Twice as Tall.

In November, the Recording Academy announced plans to change the name of Best World Music Album to Best Global Music Album, saying it’s a step toward “a more relevant, modern, and inclusive term.” The statement added: “The change symbolizes a departure from the connotations of colonialism, folk, and ‘non-American’ that the former term embodied while adapting to current listening trends and cultural evolution among the diverse communities it may represent.”
