‘Calm Down’ begins its 27th week on the chart and overtakes Wizkid’s ‘Essence,’ which peaked at No. 9 thanks to the enormous success of the Justin Bieber remix, as the second-highest charting Afrobeats single. However, Tems remains on the chart with Future’s “Wait For U,” which holds the No. 36 position and has been there for 39 weeks.

On the US Afrobeats Tracks Chart, this week’s top 10 Afrobeats songs saw little change.

As it approaches its 48th week on the chart, Rema’s “Calm Down” remix continues to hold the top spot for another 25 weeks. The second-placed song, “People,” by Libianca, continues at No. 2, followed by “Higher” by Tems, No. 3, “Rush” by Ayra Starr, No. 4, and “Essence” by Wizkid, No. 5.

Burna Boy’s “Last Last” falls to No. 6, Ckay’s “Love Nwantiti” ascends to No. 7, and Burna Boy’s “Alone” falls to No. 8. Both “Peru” by Fireboy and “Kulosa” by Oxlade are still in the top 10 songs. This week sees the premieres of Ayra Starr’s “Sability” at No. 14, Spyro’s “Who’s Your Guy” at No. 27, and Pheelz’s “Pheelz Like Summer” at No. 44.
