Rema’s ‘Calm Down’ Sets New Record For Highest Charting African Song On Billboard Hot 100


April 19, 2023

Rema’s blockbuster remix with Selena Gomez has now reached a new high position of NO. 6, breaking the African Billboard Hot 100 peak record that he previously broke with a NO. 7 position.

Rema’s “Calm Down” climbed one spot from its previous peak of No. 7 to No. 6 in the chart week of April 22, 2023, extending its run for 32 weeks.

Since its release in February 2022, “Calm Down” has enjoyed enormous popularity on a global scale. This success was further enhanced with the release of the Selena Gomez-assisted remix, which gave Rema his Billboard Hot 100 debut.

The song’s music video has surpassed CKay’s “Love Nwantiti” to become the most watched Afrobeats song on YouTube.
