As the Billboard Hot 100 reaches a new high, Nigerian superstar Rema has maintained his incredible success.
Since its debut, Rema’s song “Calm Down” has ruled the world. The tune has grown to be the most popular Afrobeats song in history thanks to multiple country charts, awards, and billions of plays.
Rema’s song “Calm Down” climbs two ranks to No. 4 on the most recent Billboard Hot 100, maintaining his record as the highest-charting Nigerian song and the second-highest African song in the chart’s history.

Rema’s “Calm Down” now has a new peak at No. 4, extending its run on the chart to 38 weeks and edging closer to the African record now held by South African icon Hugh Masekala, whose 1968 single “Grazing In The Grass” peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The song has made great gains after the release of the Selena Gomez remix of “Calm Down,” topping the charts in India, North Africa, and the Middle East, earning Rema a spot in the Guinness Book of Records.
