Burna Boy’s fifth Billboard Hot 100 appearance makes African history


January 24, 2024

Grammy-winning Afro-fusion star Burna Boy has logged his fifth entry on the Billboard Hot 100 as his collaboration ‘Just Like Me’ with American rapper 21 Savage & music producer Metro Booming debuted on 67 on the chart dated January 27, 2024.

This makes Burna Boy the Nigerian artist with the most Billboard Hot 100 entries. A record he shares with another Nigerian sensation Tems.

‘Just Like Me’ becomes Burna Boy’s fifth entry on the Billboard Hot 100 following the charting of his hit singles ‘Last Last’ (2022), ‘Sittin’ On Top Of The World’ (2023) featuring 21 Savage, ‘Talibans II’ with Byron Messia (2023), and his appearance on Justin Bieber’s ‘Love By You’ (2021).

Burna Boy also becomes the only African artist to debut at least one song on the Billboard Hot 100 in four consecutive years.

He was recently announced as one of the performers at the 66th 2024 Grammys to be held on February 4, a feat that will make him the first African to perform at Grammys live ceremony.
