Billboard Hot 100: Tems becomes first Nigerian artiste to debut No. 1

Nigerian singer, Tems has made history as the first African artiste to debut at No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with her feature on “Wait For U” by Future alongside Drake.

“Wait For U” is a single from Future’s new album “I Never Liked You”, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart after its release on May 5.

“Wait For U’ debuts with 40.2 million streams, 7.9 million radio airplay audience impressions, and 6,400 downloads sold in the April 29-May 5 tracking week, according to Luminate.”
