Apple Music Reveals Top 100 Songs of 2022– Only One Nigerian Song Makes The List

Wizkid and Burna Boy

To mark the end of the year 2022, global music streaming giant, Apple Music has revealed its year end charts, and launched a couple of new subscriber-friendly additions to the service. As well as the Top 100 Global Songs, Apple shared its Top 100: Shazam, Top 100: Fitness, and Top 100: Most-Read Lyrics charts as playlists on the platform.

Topping the 2022 100 Global songs chart is The Kid Laroi and Justin Bieber collaboration, Stay, which released in 2021 followed by Harry Styles’ As It Was. Drake, Future, and Tems round up the top 3 with the absorbing Wait For U, off Future’s 9th studio album, I Never Liked You. It dropped this year.

The only other Nigerian to have their name near the chart is Burna Boy. However, Burna made the chart with his own work– the globetrotting Last Last. Last Last came in at 64th place behind American rapper, Travis Scotts’ 2016 smash hit Goosebumps featuring Kendrick Lamar.

Last Last, which samples Toni Braxton’s 2000 single, He Wasn’t Man Enough was the lead single off Burna’s 6th studio album Love, Damini. Fans first heard the song during Burna Boy’s sold-out show at the Madison Square Garden in New York this year. It released before Love, Damini, in May and a couple of weeks later, Burna debuted a self-directed video for the song.

This feat is no small one, and cements Burna’s status as a global star. Since his victory at the 2021 Grammys, his craft seems to have gone up a notch, and there’s clear indications now that Ye singer’s hardwork is not going unnoticed.

As part of the newly rolled-out year-end features, coined Apple Music Replay, members of the platform can now see their top songs, artists, albums, genres and more for the year. To see this, they have to visit replay.music.apple.com and log in with their user ID and password. The feature will run from today until December 31.
