Ghanaian musician Stonebwoy has marked his debut on the Billboard US Afrobeats Songs Chart with his latest achievement.
The song ‘Life & Money,’ featuring Stormzy, debuted at number 47 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The song serves as the lead single off Stonebwoy’s 2023 album 5TH Dimension.
Notably, the musician has also recently released a remix of ‘Life & Money’ with US rapper Russ. This achievement comes just a few months after Stonebwoy’s 17-track album “5th Dimension” debuted at number eight on the Billboard World Reggae Album chart. This accomplishment occurred immediately after the album’s release.
This is the first Ghanaian album to score this success on the reggae charts. According to Billboard, the album was ranked “based on multi-metric consumption blending traditional album sales, track equivalent albums, and streaming (audio and video) equivalent albums.”
This is not the first time Stonebwoy’s work has scored a Billboard Chart appearance.
In 2017, his critically acclaimed album ‘Epistles Of Mama (EOM)’ appeared on the Billboard World Album Chart and in 2020 his single ‘Nominate’ made it to the Billboard World Digital Song Sales Chart.
Meanwhile, In May 2023, ‘Life & Money’ with Stormzy, claimed the No. 14 spot on the Official UK Afrobeats Chart.
