Hot 100: Wizkid Earns First Solo Top 10 With ‘Essence’

Published: Monday 11th Oct 2021 by Sam

Wizkid has ample cause for celebration today.

For, the star’s summer scorcher ‘Essence’ has blazed its way into the top 10 of the Billboard 100 on the cusp of winter.

In the process, the Tems-assisted jam has earned the Afrobeats titan a career milestone.

Full story below…

On this week’s iteration of the coveted count, the Justin Bieber-assisted remix of ‘Essence’ climbs one spot to #10.

And while it marks the second time the Nigerian performer has impacted the top 10 (after nabbing a #1 as a feature on Drake’s 2016 smash ‘One Dance’), it serves as Wiz’s first time as the lead act.

For breakout star Tems, the release has earned her the first top 10 of her promising career. While for Bieber, ‘Essence’ becomes his 25th top 10. He also remains atop of the chart as a guest on The Kid LAROI’s ‘Stay.’

‘Essence,’ which is lifted from Starboy’s ‘Made In Lagos’ album, achieved the feat with a radio audience of 48.9 million, 11.2 million streams, and digital sales of 3,200. All accrued within the most recent US tracking week.

So deserved! Congratulations!
