Nigerian Afrofusion star, Burna Boy made his highest-ever career appearance on the Rolling Stone Top 500 Artists chart this week, landing at Number 128.
This followed the release of Twice as Tall, his fifth album, which is executive produced by the rapper-producer P. Diddy.
The Rolling Stone Artists 500 chart ranks the most-streamed artists of the week in the United States, taking into account audio streams across an artist’s entire catalog during the tracking period.
According to Elias Leight of Rolling Stone, Burna Boy pulled in a total of 14.8 million streams between August 14th and August 20th in the U.S.
The singer’s numbers for Twice as Tall show steady growth since last year’s Grammy-nominated African Giant, which has earned more than 100,000 album-equivalent units in the 13 months since its release.
Twice as Tall debuted at Number 54 on the Top 200 Albums Chart, amassing 11.4 million audio streams Stateside, an increase of around 50 percent relative to African Giant‘s opening week of 8.
