TurnTable Top 50: Ladipoe’s “Feeling” makes instant top ten debut

Burna's "Kilometre" remains No. 1

Ladipoe’s revival is here. The rapper/songwriter’s latest single, “Feeling” is a growing fan favourite and Ladipoe just might be in the running for song of the summer for the second year in a row. About a week after achieving the feat, “Feeling” is still at the top of Apple Music’s Top 100: Nigeria, but if you consider that metric insular, the song’s No. 6 launch position on TurnTable’s Top 50 chart is nothing to scoff at. Without an official music video, “Feeling” makes its top ten entry on the back of 770,000 streams across freemium streaming platforms and 35.01 million radio impressions.

For the second week running, Burna Boy’s “Kilometre” sits at the summit of the Top 50. The Grammy Award winner’s latest single has been garnering worldwide attention since its late April release, and its current chart-topping position proves that the song is receiving just as much love amongst listeners in Nigeria. This week, streaming numbers for “Kilometre” significantly reduced, however, it increased both Radio Airplay impressions and TV reach to remain No. 1 on the Top 50.

Wizkid and Tems’ “Essence” is at No. 2 this week, moving up one spot from its previous position. Blaqbonez’s “Bling” follows closely, ascending to a new peak of No. 3 as a result of increases in streaming activity, radio reach and TV reach. Cheque and Fireboy DML’s “History” spends a third straight week at No. 4, while Gyakie and Omah Lay’s “Forever (Remix)” rounds out this week’s top five, falling three spots from its previous No. 2 position. Jae5’s “Dimension”, featuring Rema and Skepta, continues to be a mainstay in the top ten, entering this week at No. 7 after falling two spots from its former peak position.

Adekunle Gold’s “It Is What It is”, the lead single from his upcoming album, enters the top ten at No. 8, rising three places from its No. 11 debut position last week. Rounding out the top ten for this week is Peruzzi and Davido’s “Somebody Baby” (No. 9), and Dangbana Republik & Bella Shmurda’s “Rush” (No. 10), which moves four spots up from last week.
