‘Essence’ by Wizkid ft Tems, cracks the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 82.

The song marks Wizkid’s third appearance on the charts, after ‘One Dance’ famously hit No. 1 in 2016.

Nigerian superstar, Wizkid‘s song, ‘Essence’ became the first Nigerian song to hit the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The song which features another Nigerian singer, Tems, hit the Billboard Bubbling Under Charts for the first time.

This is a remarkable achievement for Wizkid and Tems, who are signed to the same label and for African music as a whole. However, this isn’t Wizkid’s first time on the Hot 100 chart.

He got into the chart via his features on Drake’s ‘One Dance’ which hit No. 1 in 2016 and Beyonce’s ‘Brown Skin Girl’ which peaked at #76 in 2019.

For Tems, this marks her first appearance as her launch gathers heat.
