Burna Boy, a Nigerian Afrobeat and Afrofusion artist, is having a good run with his hit song “Last Last,” which has broken Wizkid’s “Essence” record in the United States.
The CEO of Spaceship Entertainment was not exaggerating when he stated that the number-one song has earned him more money than any of his previous top hits.
The African Giant’s most recent album, “Love, Damini,” contains the 2022 hit “Last Last,” which has sold over 500,000 units in the United States of America, marking yet another major career milestone for him.
Burna Boy’s “Last Last” becomes the fastest Afrobeats song to reach Gold status in the United States, only 121 days after its release.
As a result of this achievement, the song is now eligible for a Gold Certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). ‘Last Last’ is also the first Afrobeats song to sell over 500,000 units in less than 17 weeks.
Burna Boy has officially broken the record set by Wizkid with ‘Essence,’ which took over 17 weeks to receive a gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)
