Davido’s ‘Fall’ breaks record as longest-charting Nigerian song on Billboard



One of the hit singles released in 2017 by David ‘Davido’ Adeleke, Fall, has landed the singer his highest entry on the Billboard music chart.

It is also the longest-charting Nigerian song on Billboard, after being on the chart for four consecutive weeks.

In its fourth week on the R&B/Hip-hop airplay chart, the single has risen to #29.

‘Fall’, produced by Kiddominant, was in 39th place as at last week.

A few weeks ago, Rolling Stone reported that the song was enjoying new-found success on US radio.

At the time, four new radio stations were said to have added ‘Fall’ into rotation, making a total of 36 stations playing the song.

The increased airplay has resulted in keener interest of listeners in the song and the artiste — and now, a continuous rise on the charts.

‘Fall’ is said to be one of the top 100 most Shazam’d singles in the US while it was a top 10 on Shazam in New York and Atlanta.

In December 2018, ‘Fall’ became the first Nigerian music video to hit 100 million views on YouTube.

The Daps-directed video also made history as the most-viewed Nigerian music video of all time on YouTube.

Just last week, Davido headlined a sold-out concert at London’s O2 Arena.

The 20, 000-capacity venue was packed to the rafters, with the likes of Idris Elba and Naomi Campbell in attendance.
