Alcohol, Joeboy’s latest single is taking the center stage, claiming the Number One spot on Apple Music Top 100 in three African countries.
Alcohol is said to be the hottest topping single right now across Nigeria, Uganda and Gambia respectively on Apple’s Music Top 100. It is set to become one of the biggest songs this year and gathering over 6 million streams in 7 days across all platforms.
The Joeboy single, which was released in late September is bound to be one of the best anthems to whine and unwind as we enter the last part of the year.
Joeboy has had a great year and continues to dominate the scene of Afro Pop on various countdowns across Africa, following the release of his vibrant debut album ‘Somewhere Between Beauty & Magic’, which is a good album to say but the least.
The single, which is another production from Nigerian producer Tempoe, offers fans a taste of the unique Afro-Pop sound and creativity that placed Joeboy on the map as one of the most exciting and promising acts on both the Afropop and international music scene according to Nija Vibe.
Joeboy tops the Apple Music Top 100 charts with his single “Alcohol”
The artist that was once known for recording cover songs in his college dorm has become one of Africa’s top-selling music exports, topping streaming charts and touring the continent while at that.
According to Nija Vibe, the single Alcohol captures the innocence of young love and the sting of youthful heartbreak, the 23-year-old crooner has carved his own lane within the increasingly crowded field of Nigerian pop stars.
This is not the first time Joeboy has topped charts. Months ago, the Nigerian music artist went No. 1 on Apple Music in Nigeria and Uganda with hits like “Baby” and “Beginning” — his first two solo singles — as well as top 10 spots in Kenya, Ghana and Zimbabwe.
His songs and talent have also earned him recognition outside Africa, landing him coverage and plaudits from Rolling Stone, CNN, Complex, Pitchfork and Billboard among others.
With his recent album debut, Joeboy continues to stay on top of the charts with a playlist of songs off his recent project showing off lovely visuals for tracks; ‘Lonely‘, ‘Focus‘, ‘Door‘, ‘Show Me‘ and ‘Better Thing’.
“Alcohol”, which was produced by Tempoe & mixed by Oxygene Mix is worth checking out.
