TurnTable Top 100: Young Jonn scores his first No. 1 with “Xtra Cool”

Tiwa Savage & Asake's "Loaded" also debuts at No. 3

Young Jonn has one of the most inspiring narratives in Nigerian pop in recent times. After nearly a decade of holding back on his abilities in front of the mic, mainly focusing on his prowess as a hit-making producer, the artist has embraced being a star singer and it’s proving to be a fruitful move. Last month, Young Jonn released his second EP in six months, ‘Love Is Not Enough, Vol. 2’, headlined by its late September lead single, “Xtra Cool”, which has steadily grown into smash hit status.

After two weeks in the No. 2 spot of the TurnTable Top 100 chart, “Xtra Cool” has finally overtaken Kizz Daniel’s “Cough (Odo)” to reach the top of the chart. Not only is it a new peak, it’s the first No. 1 song for the Chocolate City-signed Young Jonn. With the latest Kizz Daniel smash dipping to No. 2, Ayra Starr’s former No. 1 song, “Rush”, taking a step down to the fourth spot, and Asake’s “Joha” holding for another week at No. 5, the only new entry into the top five this week is Tiwa Savage and Asake’s delightfully irreverent and uber-infectious “Loaded”. Teased by Asake a few weeks back, the highly anticipated song tallied 3.27 million streams and 41.4 million in airplay reach, on the way to its top five debut.

The rest of the top ten is filled with familiar songs from the last edition of the TurnTable Top 100. Bella Shmurda and Omah Lay’s “Philo” stays at No. 6, so does Pheelz and Davido’s “Electricity” at No. 7. After opening in the fourth spot, Wizkid’s “Money & Love” drops to No. 8, but could see a boost following the Friday release of the singer’s new album, ‘More Love, Less Ego’. Johnny Drille’s “How Are You” moves a spot down to No. 9 this week, while Blaqbonez and Jae5’s “Back in Uni” rounds out this week’s top ten just as it did last week.
