Burna Boy’s hit track ‘Destiny,’ has been included in Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ inauguration playlist.
‘Destiny’ is the 13th track on Burna Boy’s Grammy-nominated ‘African Giant’ album.
Burna Boy, whose real name is Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, is the only Nigerian and African artiste on the playlist.
Burna Boy’s Destiny song is among 46 songs on the playlist, as the inauguration committee looks to keep at-home Americans in celebratory mood on Wednesday.
The 46 songs feature artists from across the music spectrum to honor the 46th President taking the oath of office.
The songs were also specially curated to fit the theme of the inauguration, which is “America United”.
The playlist is part of the Presidential Inaugural Committee’s push to provide opportunities for Americans to participate in the inauguration from home after the Covid-19 pandemic forced them to scale back traditional events, like the parade.
