Ye” is the 7th track from Burna Boy’s latest Album “Outside” released January 26, 2018, and the song that made Burna Boy the most listened to the artiste in 2018 because the title was the same as Kanye West’s album.
The song sends a message to everyone hustling to make a living that they should know their craft and not listen to what people say. No one is going to help you, everybody wants to live luxury but they are not ready to work for it.
The song passes a message in a rap & hip hop way. Burna Boy sure knows how to get his fans going along with his flow, but Oluwaburna, we still do not get the meaning of the word Ye which he called over 90 times in the song.

It also won Song of the Year and Listener’s Choice at the 2019 Soundcity MVP Awards Festival.
