TurnTable Top 50: Pheelz & BNXN remain at the top with “Finesse” for a third straight week

Pheelz takes the top spot

For the third consecutive week, Pheelz and BNXN continue their impressive run on the TurnTable Top 50, with “Finesse” snagging a third consecutive week at No.1. The continent-spanning anthem caught the attention of the public when sensational singer BNXN dropped a snippet of the number, which spread like wildfire. Upon its release, it shattered glass ceilings and became an instant nationwide favourite, earning artiste-producer Pheelz his first number one. It is the third longest No. 1 song of 2022 on the TurnTable Top 50—behind “Baddest Boy (Remix)” with 5 weeks and “Peru” with 4 weeks.  

Skiibii’s “Baddest Boy (Remix)” with Davido holds steady at No. 2 for another week. Interestingly, it has occupied only the top two positions on the chart since its debut. Sensation of the year Asake isn’t losing any steam as the Olamide-assisted “Omo Ope” holds steady at No. 3, after peaking atop the chart for a week. Rema’s “Calm Down” moves up a notch to No. 4 on the TurnTable Top 50 after peaking at No. 3 on the chart. It continues to lead the radio chart for the fifth straight week. Following last Friday’s release of his debut album, Rave And Roses, “Calm Down” and a handful other songs off the 16-song set are poised to populate the top part of the chart on next week’s TurnTable Top 50.

Asake’s “Sungba” makes its long due entry into the top ten, leaping a staggering ten spots to a new No. 5 peak. Interestingly, the artist has just rallied Grammy-winning superstar Burna Boy for a remix to the already huge song, putting it in position to rocket up the chart in coming weeks. Also, this makes Asake the first artist to record multiple top ten entries on the TurnTable Top 50 with a debut project (EP or LP). 

Outside the top five, Omah Lay and Justin Bieber’s “Attention” tumbles down two spots to No. 6. Lil Kesh’s “Don’t Call Me” with Zinoleesky slides from No. 6 to No. 7 after peaking at No. 3. Magixx and Ayra Starr’s “Love Don’t A Cost A Dime (Re-Up)” soars  to a new peak of No. 8, earning Magixx his first top ten entry, and Ayra Starr her third. With this, Ayra Starr sets a new milestone, becoming the first female artiste to earn three top 10 entries on the TurnTable Top 50 chart; joining “Bloody Samaritan” which peaked at No. 1 and “Away” which peaked at No. 4.

1da Banton’s “No Wahala (Remix)” with Kizz Daniel and Tiwa Savage jumps seven places up to No. 9; it becomes the lead artiste’s first top ten entry, Kizz Daniel reaches the region for the fourth time while Tiwa Savage records her second top 10 entry. Zinoleesky’s “Rocking” ascends one spot to No. 10, returning to the top ten after a two-week respite. Just outside the top ten, Ajebo Hustlers’ “Loyalty” moves to a new peak of No. 18, Blaqbonez’s ”Commander” debuts at No. 19 while Victony’s “Apollo” moves to a new high of No. 20.
