On Monday, December 16, 2019, a cut from Burna Boy’s appearance on ‘Rap Radar Podcast’ started floating on social media.
The Nigerian superstar finally made his appearance on yet another one of America’s premier interview platforms.
During the conversation, he was quizzed on how ‘Ye,’ his January 2018 smash hit was made. Burna Boy then narrated how got the beat while he was at Quilox, Victoria Island, Lagos and recorded the song at the same location.
“It’s so funny. I had finished recording the ‘Outside’ album and I had just bought a Bentley. I was in the club every other day and then, I was in this club called Quilox, right?
“The owner is my friend, his name is Shina Peller. So, he just comes up to me and he knew I was gone (high) already. I was already f******, alright (scoffs).
“So he pulls up on me and was like, ‘Yo, my guy (Phantom, the producer) just made this beat. I’m telling you, this is yours. I’m like, ‘”Bro, you have started this rubbish…’ He made them put the beat on his phone… First, we go outside to the restaurant and he plays it in my ear – I got hungry.
“Everything was in the club; there’s a restaurant right there, the studio is upstairs… it was a nice setting. So anyways, eventually we go upstairs and I start recording. The producer (Phantom) is there waiting…
“It didn’t take me 10 minutes. I spent the rest of the time listening to it. That’s how made ‘Ye’ in the club.”
