On the heartseekers albums chart, which is for emerging and developing international acts, Wizkid’s SFTOS is #5.

Four songs featuring the Nigerian singer have at various times in the past two days featured on the Billboard Twitter real-time chart.


They are ‘Come Closer,’ ‘Daddy Yo,’ ‘Naughty Ride’ and ‘One Dance’.

As of Monday, the EP was still on the R&B/hip-hop airplay chart — but it is presently off that chart

In 2016, Wizkid, who is now signed to RCA/Sony, earned his first Grammy award nomination for his collaboration with Drake.

Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Ty Dolla Sign are some of the international artistes who featured on his EP.


The ‘Daddy Yo’ singer, who recently won his second consecutive BET Award, is set to tour four US cities with rapper Future.
