Nigerian singer Burna Boy has thanked American rap sensation Kanye West for unintentionally boosting the streaming of his (Burna Boy’s) song “Ye.”
Concise News reported that the “Heartless” artiste released his latest album with the same title “Ye” on June 1 but the album became available on music platforms the following day.
While West’s fans searched for his “Ye,” which was unavailable, many stumbled on Burna Boy’s song and downloaded it.
His own song is from his latest album titled “Outside” which was released in January, 2018.
After holding listening party of the album in Lagos and London, Burna Boy’s song was downloaded by several West’s fans.
It should be noted that Burna Boy achieved his best on the Billboard music charts with this album.
He was able to clinch the third spot on the Billboard reggae chart with “Outside.”
