‘Fall’, the 2017 hit track of David ‘Davido’ Adeleke has become the longest-charting Nigerian single in Billboard history.
Billboard charts is a platform which tabulates the relative weekly popularity of songs and albums in the United States and elsewhere.
The song made its Billboard debut in 2018 and recently made history as the first-ever Nigerian music video to reach 100 million views on YouTube.
The single has now been charted on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay charts for four weeks in a row, reaching its peak position this week at 29 — 10 places up from last week.
The Kiddominat-produced song went platinum in 2018 and has remained one of Davido’s most popular songs globally and internationally, following ‘If’, ‘Fia’ and ‘Like Dat’.
In an interview just before he sold out the O2 London Arena, Davido had stated,
”No, I have always wondered why is it ‘Fall’? out of every song, Fall is not even the song I wanted people to know before, but in America, they play it on the radio every 20 minutes and then it is just moving up quickly, The Billboard top RnB song, number 25 and it’s moving up.”
The singer continues to enjoy success on the international shores with more listeners requesting for the song on US radio stations with predictions that its place on the charts may rise in the coming weeks.
