The singer’s hit song, ‘Calm Down’ made history as the first No.1 Hit on The Official MENA Chart
Nigerian music star, Divine Ikubor aka Rema, has made it to the Guinness World Book of Records.
The singer’s hit song, ‘Calm Down’ made history as the first No.1 Hit on The Official MENA Chart (the world’s first regional streaming chart).
This was made known in a post shared on the singer’s statistics Twitter account on Saturday.
The statement read, “Calm Down by #heisrema marks entry on the Guinness Book as it has won the First No.1 Hit on The Official MENA Chart (the world’s first regional streaming chart) Record.”
Rema’s ‘Calm Down’ debuted at No. 1 when the MENA Chart was launched by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry on November 29, 2022.
Rema was recognised for securing the first number 1 hit on the world’s first regional streaming chart and first-ever official chart in the Middle East and North Africa.
The singer has been steadily on the rise ever since his debut, counting on an ever-growing fanbase and racking up international fame.
At the moment of writing, “Calm Down” stands at almost 388,000,000 streams on Spotify, while its viral remix with US artist Selena Gomez achieved a whopping 717,512,920 streams on the same music platform.
The 2022 international hit made history when it skyrocketed to the top of The Official MENA Chart, shortly after the launch of the chart itself.
At a party, the singer meets a girl in a yellow dress that stands out from the others and decides to try to get closer to her.
The hit bagged several nominations and steadily placed at the top of international charts, reaching Top 3 in Belgium, France, Portugal and Netherlands (amidst other countries).
