Rema’s “Calm Down” Peaks at No #8 On Billboard Hot 100 Chart

Rema follows in the footsteps of Wizkid to become the third Nigerian artist with a Billboard Top 10 entry.

At this point, we all have to agree that Rema is the “Prince of Afrobeat”, as he becomes the third Nigerian Afrobeats singer to have a song peak on Billboard Top 10.

Fast-rising Afrobeats star, Rema took to his social media accounts with an emotional message to celebrate this mind-blowing career landmark after his collaboration with Selena Gomez “Calm Down” peaked at No #8 on the Billboard Hot 100.

With over 38 million monthly listeners on Spotify and this massive career achievement, We all have to agree that, the rave Lorde Rema is the pacesetter for the new generation of Afrobeats artists, just two Nigerian artists have entered the top 10, Wizkid was the first artist in 2016 sitting on the No #1 spot with “One Dance” featuring Drake and “Essence” featuring Tems peaked on the No #1 spot.

“Trying to hold in the tears, I know how hard I worked to get my sound here, I’m grateful to God for how far I’ve come. Love to the ones who believed, love to the Queen @selenagomez ✌🏾❤️” He wrote on Instagram.

Congrats to the fast-rising talent.
