Rema’s ‘Calm Down’ has become the most-watched Afrobeats music video on YouTube.

The track was released as one of the lead singles from Rema’s first album ‘Raves & Roses’ on February 11, 2022. The record has had huge international success since its debut, boosted by the Selena Gomez-assisted remix.

‘Calm Down’ is the fastest Afrobeats track to surpass 100 million views, having done it in less than three months.

Following the Selena Gomez remix, the song received worldwide popularity, peaking at No. 8 on the UK Singles Chart and No. 35 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The video has surpassed CKay’s “Love Nwantiti” to become the most-watched Nigerian music video on YouTube, weeks after it exceeded the 300 million views threshold.

The leading music chart journal TurnTable Charts broke the news on January 29, 2023.

With just under 23,000 views more than ‘Love Nwantiti,’ ‘Calm Down’ broke the previous Afrobeats record.
