Burna Boy kicked off his performance of “On Form” in a red bejeweled coat and jeans. He then performed his 2023 single “City Boys” before dancers separated and unveiled an appearance from Brandy, sporting glasses, a black trenchcoat and red boots, for the 2023 single “Sittin’ on Top of the World.” The track samples Brandy’s 1998 single “Top of the World.”
Featured artist 21 Savage rounds out the performance in an all-red leather outfit. The song spent three weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Burna Boy’s performance followed the Grammys introduction of the best African music performance category, for which Burna Boy’s “City Boys” was nominated. Burna Boy went up against artists including Ayra Starr, Davido and Musa Keys, and Asake & Olamide, but the honor eventually went to Tyla, for her single “Water.”
