‘Made in Lagos’ album catapults starboy Wizkid into Billboard’s Chart history

The fourth studio album which is also the second major label album from Wizkid titled ‘Made In Lagos’ has re-entered the Billboard World Album chart.

According to Charts Africa, the album which was released on October 30, 2020 was ranked at #15 on this week’s chart. “.@wizkidayo “Made In Lagos” album re-enters the Billboard World albums chart at #15…,” tweeted Charts Africa.

‘Made in Lagos’ is a body of work that features guest appearances from British artists Skepta and Ella Mai, American R&B singer H.E.R., Jamaican artists Projexx and Damian Marley, and Nigerian artists Burna Boy, Tems, Tay Iwar and Terri.

The 14-track album has generally been commercially successful, breaking several African streaming records within a week of release. It became the first African album to debut on the Spotify Global Album chart, and within the top ten at that.

The album surpassed 100 million streams across five platforms nine days after release which is arguably a huge milestone for an Afro-pop artist.

‘Made In Lagos’ album debuted at #15 on the UK Albums Chart and #80 on the US Billboard 200, while ‘Ginger’, a song Wizkid teamed up with Burna Boy became the only charting single off the album in the first week of release, peaking at #67 on the UK Singles Chart.

This chart entry made Wizkid the first Nigerian artist with two UK Singles’ entries from two albums.

‘Ginger’ also became the first number one song on the newly launched TurnTable Top 50 chart, the first in Nigeria.

Other popular singles off the ‘Made In Lagos’ album include ‘Smile’ featuring H.E.R, ‘No Stress’ and ‘Blessed’ that Wizkid features Jamaican singer Damian Marley.
