Afrobeats songs that made an appearance on Billboard Hot 100 Chart
These are the Afrobeats songs that made an appearance on Billboard Hot 100 Chart.
The phrase “Afrobeats to the world” used to be, for the most part, a declaration of hope for the future of the genre and the artistry of those whose backs it was placed.
This is due to the fact that, although Nigerian music had received some attention on a global scale, these instances had either been infrequent or had featured migrants from Nigeria and its neighbouring countries, infrequently sub-Saharan Africans.
The main problem was that we had little presence on the international charts, little exposure to foreign media, and marginal inclusion at award ceremonies.
Afrobeats, Nigerian songs, and other musical creations from other African nations are now coexisting on the charts with songs from foreign megastars, which is a turning point in the story, thankfully.
While the artists driving this transition routinely sell out arenas in distant countries while entertaining individuals who, thanks to the fleeting nature of Afrobeats, are in that place and time speaking the same language.
To the point where the phrase “Afrobeats to the world” has now undeniably been realized, there has actually been a heartwarming spate of Nigerian music on worldwide charts recently, with an even wider list of artists gaining international acclaim.
