Pheelz scores a new hit
Pheelz scores a new hit
In what has seemed imminent for a while now, Pheelz and BNXN’s “Finesse” has debuted at No. 1 on the Turntables chart. The record had gone viral before its release, thanks to immense patronage on TikTok. That virality has helped boost its streams, which Turntables calculates at 9.28million equivalent streams, making it also the No. 1 on streaming this week. At No. 9, it had 35.5million in radio reach.
Pheelz consequently becomes the first performer to reach No. 1 on the Top 50 as both a lead artiste and producer. It’s not his first however–he topped the chart for seven weeks with his production on Teni’s “FOR YOU”. BNXN has featured on No. 1 before (as BUJU) and he’s now he first artist to reach that mark with different names. With little movement in the charts, Skiibii’s “Baddest Boy (Remix)” with Davido slips to No. 2 after topping the chart for five consecutive weeks while Asake’s “Omo Ope” goes two steps down after leading the chart last week.
Debuting at No. 4 is Omah Lay and Justin Beiber’s “Attention”, which is Omah’s seventh top ten entry and Justin’s third. Both had previously featured on No. 4 with “Peaches (Masterkraft Remix)” in 2021. Rema’s “Calm Down” goes from 3 to 5 but remains top of the radio chart for the third week, with 62.3million in radio reach. Lil Kesh’s “Don’t Call Me” remains at No. 6 for another week in the top ten (the only song to spend every week of 2022 in the top 10) while TI Blaze’s “Sometimes (Remix)” with Olamide stays at No. 7 for successive weeks.
Completing the week’s top ten is BNXN’s refix of Blaq Diamond’s “Italy”, which elevates the chart at No. 8 while CKay’s “Emiliana” re-enters the top ten at No. 9. Khaid’s “WITH YOU” debuts on the top ten, rising to a new peak of No. 10. Dropping out of the top ten, Fireboy DML and Ed Sheeran’s “Peru” is at No. 13 this week but its legacy on the chart is impact–it’s the longest charting song on the top ten, being on there for 29 weeks prior to this one.
