Rema Breaks Wizkid’s Record with ‘Calm Down’ as Longest-Running African Song on Billboard World Digital Song Sales”

Nigerian sensation, Divine Ikubor, widely known as Rema, has achieved a remarkable feat by surpassing Wizkid’s record on the Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart. Rema’s collaboration with Selena Gomez, titled ‘Calm Down,’ has secured an impressive 18-week reign at the top spot, surpassing the 17-week run of Wizkid and Tems’ 2020 hit, ‘Essence.’

While ‘Calm Down’ slipped one position to No. 5 on the main Billboard Hot 100 chart this week, it achieved an extraordinary milestone. Last week, the song reached No. 4, marking the highest chart position ever achieved by a Nigerian song in the history of the Billboard Hot 100.

Moreover, ‘Calm Down’ also made its debut at No. 5 on the official Billboard Song of the Summer chart, making history as the first African song to ever grace the chart. Rema’s incredible success on the Billboard charts demonstrates his growing global influence and cements his status as one of Nigeria’s most promising musical talents.
