TurnTable Top 50: Asake ascends to No. 1 after Burna Boy-assisted “Sungba (Remix)”

The third artist to score multiple chart toppers from a project

Last week TurnTable chart announced the addition of data from Apple Music, Spotify and Deezer to its cumulative numbers for the weekly TurnTable Top 50 charts, and other relevant component charts. Partnering with several record labels and distribution companies, the chart publication will now be able to assess Nigerian-based streaming numbers from those platforms, making TurnTable’s charts even more authoritative going forward. This new development will kick in and begin affecting the TurnTable Top 50 next week, while also serving as the basis for new album and artists chart.

For this week’s edition of the TurnTable Top 50, Asake leads the pack with “Sungba,” a somewhat expected outcome following the release of its Burna Boy-assisted remix. The song became an organic favourite in the days after the YBNL-signed singer dropped his debut EP, Ololade Asake, and it’s become a nationwide hit song. The new remix, as well as its boisterous video, has furthered the ubiquity of “Sungba,” helping it to a new No. 1 peak. It’s Asake’s second No. 1 on the TurnTable Top 50, joining Davido and Kizz Daniel as the third artist to record multiple No. 1 entries with a single project. With the remix recording a huge portion of the chart points, Burna Boy is also credited with the No. 1, making him the second artist to record a chart topper in three consecutive years.

Rema is at No. 2 on this week’s TurnTable Top 50 with “Calm Down,” scoring his highest charting entry on the chart. Skiibii’s “Baddest Boy (Remix)” with Davido moves down one spot to No. 3 this week, while remaining in the top five of the streaming, radio and TV component charts. After topping the chart for the last three weeks, Pheelz and BNXN’s “Finesse drops three positions to No. 4. Rounding out the top five, Fireboy DML’s new single, “Playboy,” makes its debut at No. 5, on the back of 2.29 million equivalent streams (No. 3 on streaming) and 20 million in radio reach.

Asake makes another top ten entry with “Omo Ope,” his former chart topper, which now sits at No. 6. Omah Lay and Justin Bieber’s “Attention” follows at No. 7, falling one place from its previous position. Holding their spots from last week’s TurnTable Top 50, Magixx and Ayra Starr’s “Love Don’t Cost A Dime (Re-up)” is at No. 8, while 1da Banton’s “No Wahala (Remix),” featuring Tiwa Savage and Kizz Daniel is at No. 9. Rounding out the top ten, TI Blaze’s “Sometimes” moves up three spot to No. 10, after previously peaking at No. 6 on the chart.
