‘Last Last’, the hit track by Burna Boy, has continued its impressive run on the Afrobeats chart in the United Kingdom (UK).
The song, which tells the tale of broken relationships, topped the latest edition of the chart again.
BBC Radio 1Xtra announced the latest chart in a Twitter thread on Sunday.
“Thanks to everyone that submitted their votes.. @burnaboy is sitting comfortably at Number 1 as he takes the spot again on this weeks Official UK Afrobeats Chart. Congratulations to the African Giant,” it wrote.
‘Buga’, the collaborative song by Kizz Daniel and Tekno snagged the second spot on the chart while ‘Sugarcane’ by Camidoh, Darkoo, and Mayorkun was ranked third.
‘Palazzo’ by DJ Spinall and Asake secured the fourth spot with ‘Kwaku the Traveller’ by Black Sherif completing the top five.
The Afrobeats chart examines the top 20 songs in the genre in the UK on weekly basis.
Organisers had earlier said the initiative, launched in 2020, is aimed at further promoting Afrobeats to a global audience.
“For long, Afrobeats artists have had to work tirelessly to get their voices heard. Now, African music is finally being seen as a leading sound that global superstars turn to on a regular basis,” Kofi Kyei, who is part of the chart’s creators, had said.
“The Official UK Afrobeats Chart will help open up the culture to new audiences, giving emerging artists the opportunity to be heard whilst celebrating the sound of a continent that has gone global.”
