Asake’s “Lonely At The Top” sits at No. 1, tallying 6.04 million on-demand streams (No. 1 on streaming) and 48.3 million in radio reach (No. 5 on radio). It becomes the record-equalling fourth No. 1 single off ‘Work of Art’ – a joint record with Asake’s debut album for most No. 1 entries from one album in the singles chart history in Nigeria.

“Lonely At The Top” is also the eleventh No. 1 single by Asake – the most for any artist in history and five more than the next best artist (Davido with 6). Omah Lay’s “reason” drops to No. 2 after topping the chart for three consecutive weeks while Seyi Vibez’s “Man of the Year” rockets to a new peak of No. 3 on the chart. “Man of the Year” tallied 2.76 million on-demand streams (No. 3 on streaming) and 33.8 million in radio reach (No. 14 on radio). 

Asake’s “Basquiat” drops to No. 4 after peaking at No. 2 on the Official Nigeria Top 100. Former 1-week No. 1 “Ojapiano” by KCee slips to No. 5. Rema’s “Charm” retreats to No. 6; it topped the chart for three non-consecutive weeks while Davido’s “FEEL” dips from No. 6 to No. 7. Asake’s “Amapiano” with Olamide ranks at No. 8. 

Shallipopi’s “Ex Convict” debuts at No. 9 with 2.6 million on-demand streams during the week of July 6 – 13. It received no radio airplay as it is banned on terrestrial radio in the country. Asake’s “Sunshine” rounds up this week’s top ten.
