Burna Boy adds new mix to the viral 2024 hit song "Tshwala Bam."

Tshwala Bam, a song by South African artists TitoM and Yuppe, caused a viral dance craze that took the world by storm since its release in February, amassing over 11.5 billion views on TikTok.

However, the track’s inferno is burning even hotter now with an explosive new remix featuring Nigerian afrobeats king Burna Boy.

Rumors of the high-profile collaboration began swirling after a studio clip leaked showing Burna vibing out with TitoM, Yuppe, and S.N.E. during the South African trio’s visit to Nigeria. The anticipation intensified in the following weeks after that. Fans worldwide yearned to hear the Grammy winner’s unique touch on the global amapiano smash.

Now released on May 15th, it’s safe to say that the official “Tshwala Bam” remix didn’t disappoint. Burna Boy just has a knack for injecting an effortless cool into everything he touches, and this song is no exception. He rides the rhythms with a swagger that elevates the original’s already electric energy.

Of course, this isn’t Burna boy’s first huge remix rodeo. He proved his ability to globalize hits with his immensely popular remixes of “Jerusalema” by Master KG and “Sungba” by Asake. But there’s something extra special about the way he’s tapped into the volcanic “Tshwala Bam” craze. Ensuring it continues popping up across dancefloors worldwide.

The remix has gone viral itself, hitting #1 on the Nigerian Apple Music songs chart and amassing over 5,000,000 Spotify streams. This is not a big surprise though. Mainly because the record has dominated global charts like Shazam’s Top 200 and multiple countries’ Spotify Viral 50 lists.

For the South African trio, having Burna aboard was a no-brainer. As Yuppe expressed,

“Working with Burna Boy was an exhilarating experience. He brought his unique touch while ensuring a comfortable, collaborative environment.” TitoM also added, “To take the original to greater heights, we sought a collaborator with both global appeal and a commitment to elevating the song’s essence. Burna Boy was the perfect fit.”

The “Tshwala Bam” remix arrives as Burna’s momentum shows no signs of slowing. He’s currently tearing through the second leg of his “I Told Them…” world tour on the back of his latest smash album. The Nigerian legend has also secured two major BET Award nominations for this year. Nominations for Best Male Hip Hop Artist and Best Male R&B/Pop Artist.

With every move he makes, Burna Boy keeps reminding us why he’s afrobeats’ reigning king. Overall, the “Tshwala Bam” remix is definitely a surefire worldwide anthem that you can tune into and appreciate.
