WizKid has had one of the biggest records of 2021, with “Essence.” This featured fellow Nigerian artist, Tems. It’s been consistently doing well on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and now, has reached a new milestone.
According to Chart Data, Essence is now number 10, on the Hot 100. This now makes the single the first Nigerian song to reach the top 10 in Hot 100 chart history.
Essence originally appeared on WizKid’s fourth studio album, “Made in Lagos,” in October 2020. That project initially debuted at number 28, on the Billboard 200 chart. The remix for Essence went on to be released in late 2020, which also included Justin Bieber.
