Burna Boy’s ‘City Boy’ Clinches BPI Silver Certification in the UK

Grammy-winning artist Burna Boy continues his impressive streak as his hit single ‘City Boy’ secures a BPI silver certification in the United Kingdom, crossing the remarkable milestone of over 200,000 units in sales. This adds to the global superstar’s growing list of certifications and accolades.

The acclaimed track, part of Burna Boy’s seventh album ‘I Told Them,’ released in 2023, has been a standout success internationally. Produced by MD$ and Ruuben, ‘City Boy’ cleverly samples Jeremih’s February 2009 single, ‘Birthday Sex.’ Its infectious melody, catchy writing, and accompanying viral dance steps have contributed to its commercial triumph.

The single reached No. 14 on the UK Singles Chart and claimed the top spot at No. 1 on the UK Afrobeats chart. Burna Boy’s impressive BPI certification portfolio now includes platinum plaques for ‘Last Last’ and ‘YE,’ gold plaques for ‘On The Low’ and ‘For My Hand’ featuring Ed Sheeran, and silver plaques for ‘Real Life’ featuring Stormzy, ‘Anybody,’ and ‘Gbona.’


As ‘City Boy’ adds another certification to Burna Boy’s repertoire, the track is also in contention for the inaugural award for Best African Song Performance at the 2024 Grammy Awards, set to take place on February 5.
