Burna Boy becomes the first and the only African artist to achieve the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America certification) gold certification with his solo songs; ‘Last Last,’ ‘On The Low,’ and ‘Ye.’

Last Last was produced by Chopstix with a sample of Toni Braxton’s 2000 R&B classic He Wasn’t Man Enough. According to Burna Boy, the track has brought in more money than any other song in his catalog. 

“I’ve made more money from Last Last than any other song in my whole career in a short time and I just dropped it like one month ago,” Burna revealed in an interview while clarifying reports about royalty sharing between him and Braxton.
“The 60% royalties that Toni Braxton takes is being misunderstood, she does not get 60% of the whole thing but just one little part,”
