Burna Boy made a solid hit with the single Ye and finally nailed it with outstanding visuals shot by Clarence Peters.
Ye is a single off Burna Boy‘s Outside album which was released earlier this year. This song which has the same title as one of Kanye’s single helped Burna break out of the Nigerian Market. Described as an Afrofusion, Ye mixes pop, dancehall, and Afrobeats into its own unique thing.
The video features High-end fashion and a nice Bentley. He obviously chose a Bentley over a G Wagon winks.
“It is a song that essentially shows the unrelenting nature of Nigerians (where I’m from). We thrive despite the leadership and circumstances. Everyone has big dreams that logically may or may not be achieved; Aspiring to have a Bentley, g-wagon regardless of their current situation. “I can’t come and kill myself” is an expression that means, you can’t dwell on things that aren’t working out or looking good, you only have one life after all. So the video was just a fun situation, I was trying to show the general idea behind that expression. Always strive to live your life to the fullest, as we hope for a better tomorrow.” says Burna Boy
