Almost five years ago, Burna Boy ignited the airwaves with scorcher ‘Ye’ and its resonance continues to this day in a major way.
Because the track, which is lifted from the African Giant’s album ‘Outside,’ has crossed a seismic new milestone.
This week has seen the infectious anthem become Burna’s first song to be certified Platinum by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America). The feat recognizes US equivalent sales of 1 Million units.

Burna’s big win comes as he gears up to rock the London Stadium with the UK’s first-ever solo gig to be headlined by an Afrobeats artist.
