Rema’s ‘Calm Down’ has had a steady ascent since its debut, making it the largest Afrobeats export abroad.

Rema has maintained his good run by scoring an unprecedented achievement with a No. 3 peak position on the Billboard Hot 100, with ‘Calm Down’ being the most played song on US radio.

The popular track topped the Billboard Radio Chart after garnering 97.68 million impressions in the United States, which was enough to knock Miley Cyrus’ chart-topping tune ‘Flowers’ from the top spot.

Rema’s ‘Calm Down’ with Selena Gomez previously made history as the first African song to reach the top of US Pop radio.

It is also the highest-ranking Nigerian song on the Billboard Hot 100 and the second African song, behind only South Africa’s Hugh Masekala’s 1968 hit ‘Grazing In The Grass,’ which peaked at No. 1.

As its extraordinary surge continues, ‘Calm Down’ is expected to fight for the No. 2 slot on the Billboard Hot 100 next week.
