As of Tuesday, August 24, Wizkid’s fourth studio album, Made In Lagos, snatched No. 1 spot on the Billboard world album chart.
Naija News recalls that the Nigerian singer, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, who is better known as Wizkid or Big Wiz had released the album last year October.
While Made in Lagos is still making waves in the music industry, not resting on his oars, Wizkid has told his beloved fans to calmly await the release of Made in Lagos deluxe album.
This is coming even as the singer and songwriter are gearing for his album tour.
The project slated for release on Friday has a total of 18 songs with four additional tracks to the initial album, Naija News understands.
Notable in the additions is ‘Essence’ (remix) and ‘Mood’, featuring upcoming artiste, Buju.
Wizkid had featured Nigerian singer, Tems in his song ‘Essence’. The record-breaking release became the first Nigerian song on the Billboard Hot 100 and Global 200 music chart in July.
To add to the accolades already received with the release, Wizkid in early August featured Canadian star Justin Bieber on the remix of Essence.
Popularly referred to as the song of the summer, the remixed version of Essence also sits at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard world digital song sales chart as of Tuesday.
The album which has spent a total of 41 weeks on the World album chart had debuted on the number two spot in November 2020.
It was also the first African album to debut on the Spotify Global Album chart at top ten positions barely a week after its release.
