  • After dating Stefflon Don for three years, Burna Boy took to Instagram on December 21, 2021, to tell the world they'd broken up. On "Last Last" the Afrobeats King addresses some of the struggles he faced after splitting with the British-Jamaican rapper.

    I no holy and I no denge pose like baba fryo
    My eye o don cry o

    Though he admits to not being a perfect boyfriend during the relationship, the heartbreak Burna Boy felt when it ended made him want to cry.

    On February 27, 2022, Burna Boy survived a nasty accident in Lagos' Lekki area with his new Ferrari 458.

    Now you crash your Ferrari for lekki Burna
    Na small thing remain, could have been all over
    My feelings still dey swing like jangolova

    Burna Boy blames his crash on still feeling emotionally unbalanced after the breakup. He compares his feelings to "janglova," a Nigeran word used to describe roller-coasters, merry-go-rounds, swings and other fun fair equipment.
  • On the chorus, Burna Boy details how he needs "Igbo" (weed) and "Shayo" (alcohol) to take his mind off the breakup.
  • Chopstix's production samples Toni Braxton's 2000 R&B hit "He Wasn't Man Enough."
  • Burna Boy debuted "Last Last" during his April 28, 2022 show at Madison Square Garden in New York. He became the first Nigerian artist to headline a concert at the 20,000-capacity arena.
  • Burna Boy released "Last Last" as the lead single from Love, Damini. The record peaked #14, surpassing Wizkid's Made In Lagos as the highest-charting Nigerian album on the Billboard 200.
