Burna Boy releases the official music video for “Real Life” which features UK act, Stormzy.
The video captures the life of an average black teenager in the United Kingdom, from the choices he makes to the results of his actions.
It is centred around a set of twins, one training to be a footballer and the other, a seemingly unambitious street boy.
The video, shot in London by JM Films, is a heart-wrenching depiction of the song’s lyrics, with Stormzy’s verse;
”Yes, we are blessed but it’s harder to see sometimes….” and George the Poet’s spoken-word message from his ‘Real Life’ poem, balancing out Burna Boy’s message and all coming together to deliver a thought-provoking and deeply intense short film. Watch Burna Boy Real Life video below;
”Real Life” is one of the tracks housed under Burna Boy’s critically acclaimed body of work, the “Twice As Tall.”
