Nigerian Afro-fusion sensation and globetrotter feature alumni Burna Boy has dropped a collaborative track titled Heaven’s Gate to coincide with the release of his Outside mixtape on January 26. Featuring Lily Allen, the song marks the fourth single he’s released since being signed by Atlantic Records.

Heaven’s Gate is a fast-paced number with a dancehall influence that tells the story about going the extra mile to protect the things he loves the most. The video sees Burna Boy dancing and singing along in the presence of family and friends—in the living room, kitchen, barbershop, etc—and is concluded with a snippet of his J Hus collaboration, Sekkle Down.

The Lagos native is a star on the rise, attracting an ever-growing fanbase with his own brand of Afro-fusion, which he describes as a blend of dancehall, R&B, hip hop and Afrobeats.
