their scene-stealing collaboration

This week, Davido and Focalistic’s hit record “Champion Sound” makes its top ten debut. Making its entry at No.9 this week, the song garnered 1.02 million equivalent streams and 39 million in radio reach. It is Davido’s fifth top ten entry of 2021 and thirteenth overall in the top ten.

“Champion Sound” also becomes Davido’s record 30th total entry on the Top 50 and record 18th entry as a lead artist. The song is Focalistic’s first in the top ten and second overall, following the No. 15 peak of “Ke Star (Remix)” – also with an assist from Davido.

Elsewhere in the Top 50 charts, “Sip (Alcohol)” logs its eighth week at No. 1 on the TurnTable Top 50 – making it the longest No. 1 song of 2021 on the chart. “Sip (Alcohol)” tallied 2.8 million equivalent streams (up 21.4%), 43.7 million in radio reach (down 18%) and 11.3 million in TV reach. It is now second on the list of longest No. 1 in chart history, behind only the 11-week reign of “Godly.”

Adekunle Gold’s “High” with Davido is steady at its No. 2 peak on the Top 50 while Reekado Banks’ “Ozumba Mbadiwe” holds at its No. 3 high for another week. Timaya’s “Cold Outside” with Buju stays at No. 4 for a fourth consecutive week. Fave’s “Baby Riddim” rises to a new high of No. 5 on the chart; it tallied 2 million equivalent streams (up 41.8%) and 34 million in radio reach (up 20.1%).

At No. 6 this week is Mayorkun and Victony’s “Holy Father” which ascends to a new peak after tallying 50.8 million in radio reach (up 15.5%) and 1.04 million equivalent streams (up 92.6%). Fireboy DML’s “Peru” rises to No. 7 this week and it’s followed by former chart-topper “Lie” by Kizz Daniel at No.8. Kizz Daniel’s latest EP ‘Barnabas’ also floods the chart with six new entries and becomes only the fifth project to send all songs on it to the TurnTable Top 50. Closing out the top 10, Ayra Starr’s “Bloody Samaritan” retreats to No.10 this week. Just outside the top ten, there are a couple of debuts by Kizz Daniel including “Eh God (Barnabas)” at No. 13 and “Pour Me Water” at No. 20.
