Grammy award-winning Nigerian singer, Burna Boy, is here with his seventh new single of 2023. This track is called, “Cheat On Me” and it was just released on August 22.
It features the likes of Dave, the UK rap phenom that has blown up this year. The two have previously worked together on Dave’s smash hit “Location.”
That track appears on Dave’s 2019 album PSYCHODRAMA, and it currently sits at over 456 million plays on Spotify. With that being said, it is no shocker that these two feel they can make another fire song in the studio.
This new cut, “Cheat On Me” is very mellow and fun with a chipmunk soul-inspired production. The high-pitched vocals are on the intro and chorus, “Ah, and I couldn’t see, I was cheating on, cheating on me.” It also has Burna’s signature Afro-type rhythm that is very pleasing to the ears.
Both he and Dave deliver emotional verses about having the finer things in life while being with those they care for the most.
Additionally, there is also an accompanying music video for “Cheat On Me.” It shows both artists enjoying their time making the song in the booth and laughing it up. There is also footage of the two performing on stage at a concert together.
There is a lyric in the song from Burna where he says, “Taking my n*** around the world,” and some shots of him in a jet and celebrating life with the people closest to him. That is always a nice sight to see and it pairs well with the vibe of the track.
