Less than 24 hours after its spectacular release, Asake and Olamide’s song “Amapiano” debuted on the charts. On May 23, 2023, Asake and his label boss Olamide released an unanticipated song titled “Amapiano” that stunned many fans. Less than a day later, it had taken over the charts.
Less than 24 hours after its release, “Amapiano” scored a number-one debut on the Spotify Top Songs Nigeria Daily Chart with over 100,000 listens. With fewer tracking hours, “Amapiano” is also ranked number 12 on the Nigerian Top 100 Songs chart on Apple Music. “Amapiano” embraces the Nigerian fusion of the well-known, identical South African genre and infuses it with Asake’s distinctive style.
A contagious fusion of upbeat beats, bright melodies, and catchy choruses envelops listeners in the song, making for an appealing musical experience. So when Asake’s second album, “Work of Art,” was announced, fans were ecstatic to learn that the project’s release date, June 15, 2023, had also been confirmed. TAs a result, the album “Work Of Art,” which has only had three tracks released, is quite prominent on the Apple Music Top Albums ranking.
Given how wonderfully his surprise release performed in less than 24 hours, it would be an understatement to say that Asake was utterly missed by his audience. However, the singer’s concert at the 02 Arena in 2023 has fans in the UK anticipating it as well.
