Wizkid’s Essence topped the Billboard World Digital Songs Sales chart for the week ending July 24th, 2021. This is however not the first time the singer has topped the chart, having seen his collaboration with Beyonce, Brown Skin Girl peak at no. 1 back in 2019.
Essence is however not the only Wizkid song on the Billboard World Digital Songs Chart. Songs from the singer’s last album, Made in Lagos are making their way rapidly up the chart as well. Smile, No Stress, and Ginger all peaked at Nos. 5, 4, and 10 respectively last year. In 2019, Fever and his feature on Olamide’s Kana both peaked at Nos. 10 & 4 respectively.
Wizkid himself recently described Essence as the biggest song in the world. Performing at his Wizkid Live Party in Abuja hosted at Hustle & Bustle, a nightclub in the Federal Capital Territory, Big Wiz requested that veteran Disk Jockey, DJ Spinall should play him the ‘Biggest song‘ in the world.
