TurnTable Top 100: Ayra Starr’s “Rush” Is The No.1 Song In Nigeria

"Rush" becomes the first song by a female artist to debut at the top of the charts

After debuting on the TurnTable Top 100 last month, Ayra Starr has risen to the top of the charts with her new single, “Rush.” As the No.1 song of the week, the track tallied 4.66 million streams and 40.3 million in radio reach. Following the release of its accompanying music video, the track has also amassed up to 1.73 million airplay impressions on TV, making Ayra Starr the first female artist with multiple No. 1 songs in Nigeria (“Bloody Samaritan” also peaked at No. 1).

Following closely at No. 2 and No.3 on the charts this week is Asake’s “Organise” and “Terminator” respectively. Asake was the previous holder of the No.1 spot on the charts, however, this streak has now been broken by Ayra Starr who rises to the summit of the charts. Pheelz’s “Electricity” with Davido moves up one spot to No. 4 this week, from its previously held position at No. 5. Rounding up the top 5 this week is former 7-week chart-topper, “Bandana” by Fireboy DML and Asake.

At No.6 this week is Asake’s “Joha” which retains its position for another week in a row. It is closely followed by Bella Shmurda’s new single, “Philo” which features Omah Lay at No.7 this week. The record tallied 2.43 million streams and 27 million in radio reach. It is the seventh top 10 entry for Bella Shmurda and the tenth for Omah Lay.

Rounding out this week’s top ten is Wizkid’s “Bad To Me” at No. 8. Oxlade’s “Ku Lo Sa – A COLORS SHOW” re-enters the top ten at a new peak of No. 9, while Asake’s “Dull” drops to No.10. Elsewhere on the charts, Victony’s “Soweto” with Tempoe reaches a new high of No. 12 while Black Sherif’s “Soja” debuts at No. 19.
