The song of the summer, ‘Essence’ by Wizkid featuring Tems, has reportedly gone Gold in the US after raking in 500,000 sales in the country.
The song is by far the most successful African song this year. It has topped almost every Afro beat Chart and even penetrated other genres since it was released.
It bagged its first major milestone when it appeared in the top ten songs on Apple Music in the US; which set a record by becoming the first African song to achieve that. The song is by far the most streamed Afrobeats tune on many music platforms.
