Wizkid's 'Essence' Makes RollingStone's Best Songs of 2021 List | SEE DETAILS

Another recognition coming the way of Wizkid today as his global smash hit, Essence has been declared as the best song of 2021 by RollingStone in a new list released today.

RollingStone has just released their list of the best songs of 2021 and at the very top of that list is none other than Essence by Nigerian superstar, Wizkid. The list was released on Monday, the 6th of December 2021.

Essence which is popularly acclaimed as "the song of the summer," is a song off Wizkid's Made in Lagos album, which was released in 2020. The afro-pop tune which features talented Nigerian songstress Tems, is a soothing mid-tempo song that has taken over the music scene on a global scale.

Away from this recent feat, Essence has earlier hit different milestones, including breaking into the top 10 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 (making it the highest-ranking African song ever to appear on the chart), scoring over 60 million streams on Apple Music, entering the US Apple Music top 10 as the first African song to do so, among other records.
