Rema’s “Calm Down” spends one year on US Billboard chart

Nigerian singer, Divine Ikubor, known as Rema, has broken another record as his song “Calm Down” with Selena Gomez became the first song in history to spend one year on top of the Billboard US Afrobeats Songs chart.

American data collection company, Chart Data disclosed that the song has spent 52 weeks as number one on the Billboard US Afrobeats Songs chart.

It peaked number three on the main chart, Billboard Hot 100, and reached number one on the Canadian Top Songs chart.

Credible News recalls that Rema’s “Calm Down” entered into the Guinness World Record as the First No.1 Hit on the world’s first regional streaming chart, The Official MENA Chart.

‘Calm Down’ debuted at No. 1 when the MENA Chart was launched by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry on November 29, 2022.

Another Nigerian sensational singer whose song achieved a milestone was the legendary musician, King Sunny Ade.

Sunny Ade’s critically-acclaimed album, “Juju Music” in 1982 spent 29 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart and was the longest-running Nigerian project in the chart’s history until it was displaced by Rema’s debut album “Rave & Roses”.
