    Rema's 'Calm Down' Becomes First African Song to Hit One Billion US Streams

    Popular Nigerian singer, Divine Ikubor, popularly known as Rema’s hit song ‘Calm Down’ has made history as the first African song to earn 1 billion on-demand streams in the United States.

    According to American Music Stats Company, Chart Data, ‘Calm Down’ has earned over 1 billion on-demand streams in the US.

    “REMA’s “Calm Down” becomes the first Afrobeats song in history to earn over 1 billion on-demand streams in the US,” Chart Data tweeted.

    In August last year, ‘Calm Down remix’ with Selena Gomez became the first African song to hit the billion mark in Spotify’s history.

    The duo teamed up on the remix of Rema’s global hit ‘Calm Down.’

    The original version of ‘Calm Down’ was recognised by Guinness World Record as the first number one song on the world’s first regional streaming chart, MENA.

    In November 2023, Rema shuts down his “Ravage Uprising” 02 Arena show in London. The sold-out show of 20,000 capacity saw the likes of Nigerian celebrities and fans traveling all the way to London for the show that can described as yet another celebration of Afrobeats.

    Rema joined other award-winning Nigerian artistes like Wizkid, Davido, Burna Boy, and Asake who have already sold the arena.
