Burna Boy Achieves RIAA Platinum Certification With ‘Ye’
Nearly five years ago, Burna Boy set the airwaves on fire with a scorching “Ye,” and the repercussions continue in a big way to this day.
Because a track lifted from the African giant’s album Outside has crossed a new milestone in earthquakes.
This week, the infectious anthem became Burna’s first song to be certified platinum by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America). This feat recognizes her one million unit sales in the United States.
