Turntable Top 50: Black Sherif Is No. 1 For Third Consecutive Week

Blacko stays on top

Last week, we reported Black Sherif’s dominance on the Turntable Top 50. This week, the 20-year-old Ghanaian artist has extended that lead, going three weeks straight at number one. “Kwaku The Traveller” got 4.41million streams, remaining No. 1 in streaming but going down 27.7% from last week’s numbers. With 42.6million in radio reach, it went No. 2 on the charts, seeing an increase of 24.2%. Right now, only Gyakie and Omah Lay’s remix of Forever has spent a longer time at the summit of the Turntable charts, with four weeks.

On No. 2 is Rema’sCalm Down, tallying 45.5million in radio reach. Nine weeks at the top, it is now the longest No. 1 on the radio chart in 2022. And just a week behind the all-time record held by Fireboy DML and Ed Sheeran’s “Peru”. Swapping last week spots, Asake’s Sungba (Remix) drops to No. 3. Playboy by Fireboy DML reaches a new high of No. 4, getting 40.8million in radio reach (No. 3 on radio, up 17%) and 2.2 million equivalent streams (No. 4 on streaming, up
13%). Former No. 1, Pheelz and BNXN’s Finesse, occupies fifth place in this week’s charts.

Skiibii and Davido’s Baddest Boy (Remix) drops one spot below, to No. 6. Asake and Olamide’sOmo Ope is in seventh place. Darkoo and Black Sherif’s Always” remains at No. 8 for the third consecutive week.

Rounding out this week’s top ten is a couple of re-entries. Omah Lay and Justin Bieber’sAttention moves three places from No. 12 to No. 9. TI Blaze’s Sometimes with Olamide elevates from No. 11 to No. 10. Just outside the top ten, British rapper ArrDee’s Come & Go hits a new peak of No. 12, which is not at all surprising following his recent appearance at the Homecoming festival.
