It was also revealed that most of the album was recorded during the pandemic, and Burna Boy and Diddy collaborated on an eight-hour jet lag via frequent Zoom calls and file transfers. Diddy provided musical contributions, including drumming by Anderson .Paak on songs, "Alarm Clock" and additional production by Timbaland on another "Wetin Dey Sup".
Diddy also makes his presence audible with voice-over intros on some songs, briefly featuring Burna Boy. But he said the music was about 80 percent complete, including all of the songwriting before he was brought in to provide him with "new ears" and his eye for detail. The album, he added, is “a modern but pure and unapologetic African work.
