The Nigerian artist Wizkid and his latest release ‘Essence’ has become the most Shazamed song in the United States.
It’s a major moment for both artists who are signed to the same label. The track itself has been receiving wide acclaim since it was released off his fourth studio album ‘Made in Lagos’, last year.
The announcement was made by Shazam on its website during a recent article it released detailing the top 200 Most Shazamed songs in the US. They beat out The Kid LAROI, Ed Sheeren, and Eurovision winners Måneskin.
It’s further evidence of streaming services giving life to songs of any age. This track was released a year ago and it’s now having a second wave of popularity. In fact, the track was recently remixed by Justin Bieber, which is likely what gave the track a boost in western audiences.
