Quite the pleasant surprise.

June 04, 2018

Kanye West's newly released ye, simply titled after the well-known shortened-version of his first name has caused some confusion among fans. As folks have been searching for the project all over streaming platforms, they've not only stumbled upon the new Kanye, it seems that searches are also bringing up a totally different result: Burna Boy's polyrhythmic "Ye" off of his early 2018 album "Outside."

The mix up hasn't disappointed fans though, one Twitter user shared that they listened to Burna Boy's album, "For shits [and] it was FLAAAAAMES HOLY FUCK." Burna Boy also jumped on Twitter himself to thank Kanye for the confusion, uploading a video while dancing to Yeezy's "Yikes." Burna also tweeted that his album streams were up 200% because of the mix up; "Ye" is currently Burna Boy's #3 song on Spotify and his top song on Apple Music.
