Davido Becomes the Second Artiste to Record 1 Million Views on YouTube NG in a week
Davido joins Burna Boy as the only two artiste to record over 1 million views in a week on YouTube NG; YouTube NG refers to views coming solely from Nigeria.
This follows the release of “FEM” official video on Thursday, September 10 which propelled Davido into the company of two; the artiste recorded 1.02 million views during the tracking week of September 11 – September 17, 2020. This is only behind’s Burna Boy’s 1.12 million views recorded during the tracking week of August 14 – August 20, 2020 (the first-week of Twice as Tall release).
“FEM” itself recorded 807,000 views – a new record for highest views by a song in a week in both 2020 and history (YouTube chart record for Nigeria dates back to Apr 27 – May 3, 2018).
The record for highest views by a song in a week for 2020 was previously held by Cardi B's "WAP" featuring Megan Thee Stallion while the record for highest views ever by a song in a week was previously held by Wizkid's "Fever."
Other songs by the artiste enjoyed a boost due to the buzz of “FEM” including “1 Milli,” which enters the Top 100 back at No. 48 this week.
“Betty Butter” and “Lowo Lowo” both feature Davido and are in the Top 100 at No. 26 and No. 55 respectively. The views from both songs are factored into the artiste’s total in a week.
Other songs like “Fall,” “Blow My Mind,” “Assurance,” and “IF” enjoyed a boost but most views came from other countries (further analysis of YouTube views based on location will be revealed later in the week).
(Naira Marley’s 642,000 views during the tracking week of Dec 27, 2019 – Jan. 2, 2020 is counted towards 2019)
The 804,000 views of “FEM” will be factored into its weekly numbers for TurnTable Top Streaming Chart, which combines Audiomack, Boomplay and YouTube. The song is pacing to debut at No. 1 on the chart that will be revealed on Tuesday, September 22, 2020.
