TurnTable Top 50: Asake scores another No. 1 with “Peace Be Unto You”

The only artist to score multiple No. 1 entries in 2022

Asake has been Nigerian pop’s revelation of this year, jumpstarting trends, amassing acclaim and tangible accolades with each new release. The singer’s latest drop, “Peace Be Unto You,” has snagged the No. 1 spot on the TurnTable Top 50 chart in its debut week, tallying 6.18 million equivalent streams, 34.1 million in radio and 2.52 million TV impressions. This gives Asake his first solo No. 1, and his third overall, as his previous top songs were collaborations; “Omo Ope” with Olamide and “Sungba (Remix)” with Burna Boy.

The race for the No. 1 spot was a close one. Last week, Kizz Daniel and Tekno’s “Buga (Lo Lo Lo)” scored the most weeks at No. 1 in 2022, and while it received a major boost due to its recent video release, the song finally slips to No. 2 on the chart. Mavins’ “Overloading (OVERDOSE)” has consequently fallen to No. 3, after threatening to take over the top spot in the last few weeks. With 40.7 million in radio reach, however, it leads the component radio chart that makes up the TurnTable Top 50. This feat means Ayra Starr is the first female artists to send to two songs to No. 1 on radio, and Ladipoe becomes the first rapper to do the same.

Rounding out the upper part of this week’s TurnTable Top 50, SPINALL & Asake’s “PALAZZO” descends 3-4, while Burna Boy’s “Last Last,” which tops the TV chart for a fifth straight week, has gone down one spot to No. 5. Omah Lay’s “Woman,” which previously peaked at No. 5 on the chart, has fallen one spot from its previous week’s position to No. 7, and its preceded by Camidoh’s “Sugarcane (Remix)” with Mayorkun, Darkoo and King Promise which also moves down one spot to No. 6.

Lade’s “Adulthood Anthem” attains a new No. 8 peak this week, with 2.54 million equivalent streams and 22.7 million in radio reach. Zinoleesky’s “Loving You” drops two place to No. 9, while Davido’s “Stand Strong” with The Sunday Service Choir falls two spots to No. 10. For songs that just missed the top 10, there are several debuts, with Ckay’s “WATAWI” entering the TurnTable Top 50 at No. 13, Chris Brown’s “Call Me Every Day” with Wizkid starting at No. 14, Mayorkun’s “Certified Loner (No Competition)” debuts at No. 20, and Ruger’s “Girlfriend” also debuts at No. 27.
