Boonoonoonoos, Boney M's 5th album was released in November 1981. Orignally scheduled for release in 1980, but due to poor single sales in some European countries Frank Farian decided to revise the album.

In order to promote the album Boney M. flew to Jamaica in 1981, to record a TV special, perform live in concert with Rita Marley, shoot photos for the album cover, and record the song Silly Confusion, one of the last to be recorded for the album. The resulting TV special is available on the Boney M. DVD Fantastic Boney M. - on stage and on the road.

This album features some classic Boney M. tracks - We Kill The World, which hit the #1 spot in Spain and South Africa, as well as making the UK top 40 reaching #39 & Maliaka the first Boney M. single in 5 years not to make the German top 10. On this album Bobby sings the rap parts in the track Thats Boonoonoonoos. Atlantic Records, planned to release Jimmy as a single in 1982, but eventually shelved these plans.
