TurnTable Top 100: Ayra Starr earns two spots on the top 20 this week

Tyla's "Water" also debuts at No.34

There’s no denying that Ayra Starr is one of the most formidable breakout stars from the past few years. Since her debut on the scene in 2020 under the Mavin label imprint, the global star has continued to record level-breaking wins from her near residency on the charts owing to her delectable music and relatable lyrics, as well as her irresistible charisma and star power.

It’s this consistency in delivering outstanding output that has led Ayra Starr to this moment in her career. This year, she’s been lyrically peeling back the curtain to reveal new levels of artistry with singles that are constantly in rotation, expanding the sound of Afropop and disrupting what the world knows of the genre.

This week, Crayon’s “Ngozi” featuring Ayra Starr rises from its previous peak at No.5 to No.3 on the charts this week. The track which featured on Crayon’s debut album also tops the radio chart for the first time with 51.4 million in radio reach. Elsewhere on the charts, Ayra Starr’s “Rhythm & Blues” enters into a new peak of No. 19.

Coming in at No.1 for another week is Asake’s “Lonely At The Top” which tallied 2.1 million on-demand streams (No. 3 on streaming) and 48.6 million in radio reach (No. 2 on radio). As a result of its record wins on the chart, it logs a historic 12th week at No. 1 to become the all-time longest chart leader in singles chart history. Asake’s “Lonely At The Top” 12th week at No. 1 comes without the song topping any of the component charts – it dips No. 2 on radio after breaking the record for most weeks at No. 1 and ranks at No. 3 on the streaming chart

Mohbad’s “Ask About Me” slips to No.2 this week as it tallied 2.45 million on-demand streams (No. 1 on streaming) and 27.9 million in radio reach (No. 7 on radio). The track also made history last week by becoming the first posthumous No. 1 single in Nigeria. Burna Boy’s “City Boys” holds at No. 4 after peaking at No. 2 while Mohbad’s “Beast & Peace” slides to No.5 on the charts.

Davido’s “FEEL” rebounds into the top ten with an entry at No.6 by jumping from its previous position at No.39 following the release of its official music video. The song peaked at No. 3 on the Top 100 so far. Mohbad’s “Pariwo” with Bella Shmurda dips to No.7 while “Peace” by the late artiste is also down one spot to No. 8. Rounding out this week’s top ten; Omah Lay’s former 3-week No. 1 “Reason” rebounds at No.9 while Ayox & Zlatan’s “Walking Dead (Tribute to Mohbad)” falls to No.10 this week.
