‘Twice As Tall’: Burna Boy Makes Highest-Ever Appearance On Rolling Stone Chart
Nigerian Afrofusion singer, Burna Boy, has made his highest-ever appearance on the Rolling Stone’s top 500 artists chart after the release of ‘Twice As Tall’, his latest album.
The award-winning singer occupied the 128th spot on the chart which “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.”
In a blog post, the company revealed that Burna Boy’s new album pulled in a total of 14.8 million streams between August 14 and 20 in the United States.
The US-based magazine added that the success recorded by the 15-track project so far showed it is poised to better the strides of ‘African Giant’, the singer’s 2019 hit album.
“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,” it wrote.
“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 8.5 million.”
The development comes about the same when ‘Twice As Tall’ topped the world albums category of the Billboard music chart.
The project, which is the singer’s fifth album, was released on August 14, after failing to meet its July release date, and has continued its impressive run since then.
