‘Essence’, a song by Nigerian music stars, Ayo Balogun widely known as Wizkid, and starlet Tems, has debuted at no 82 on Billboards Hot 100 chart.

Billboard revealed this in a tweet on Monday evening.

Hot 100 rankings are based on sales (physical and digital), radio play, and online streaming in the United States.

‘Essence’, a track from Wizkid’s critically-acclaimed ‘Made In Lagos’ album, was released in October last year, with a music video coming early this year.

Former US President, Barack Obama, had also listed ‘Essence’ among his favourite songs from 2020.
