Burna Boy’s ‘Ye’ certified gold in US

Published

on

‘Ye’, a track off Burna Boy’s third studio album ‘Outside’, has been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Bose Ogulu, the Grammy-award winner’s mother and manager, broke the news on her Instagram page on Tuesday.

With this new feat added to his outstanding international achievement, ‘Ye’ becomes the fastest Nigerian song to be certified ‘Gold’ by RIAA.

Burna Boy’s song also joins the list of Nigerian records to be certified gold in the US.

‘If’ and ‘Fall’ by Davido, Nigerian pop star, as well as ‘Come Closer’ by Wizkid, another Grammy award-winner, have all previously achieved the massive feat.

In the US, the RIAA awards certification is based on the number of albums and singles sold through retail and other ancillary markets, while a gold record is a single or album that sells 500,000 units (records, tapes or compact discs).

‘Ye’ had been released on August 6, 2018, as the sixth single from his third studio album ‘Outside’.
