Before the release of “Ire”, Adekunle Gold said the Seyikeyz-produced track will be “the soundtrack of your life”, and he was clearly on to something. It’s an immensely relatable song about the struggle to be the best you can be.

Speaking about what the song means to him on Instagram, Adekunle Gold said:

“‘Ire’ is a symbolic song about the hustle, the struggle, the loss, the beginning of faith and the journey to being me.”
