• All the records broken by Burna Boy on this week’s chart

Recap of a record-breaking week on the chart for the African Giant

The release of Twice as Tall cemented Burna Boy’s status as the leading artiste in Africa, debuting on several albums and singles chart in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America. Expectedly, the dominance continued at home where the artiste broke several records including becoming the first artiste to surpass 1 million views in one week on YouTube NG (based on views solely from Nigeria).

While record keeping and chart aggregates have eluded the Nigerian music industry for years, TurnTable Charts is gradually providing a solution to this, with the Top Airplay Chart and Top Streaming Chart – the former launched on July 9, 2020 and the latter launched on July 14, 2020. ( Top Triller Chart Nigeria has since been added to the list of charts on August 21).
