• Davido Becomes the Second Artiste to Record 1 Million Views on YouTube NG in a week

Davido had a record-breaking week to remember on YouTube

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).

WAP

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.
