Calm Down by Rema smashes YouTube’s Afrobeats record

The song & music video of “Calm Down” by Rema now created history as it has the most views on YouTube of any Nigerian song. It surpassed CKay’s “Love Nwantintin Remix” with Joeboy and Kuami Eugene just a short while ago.

On February 11, 2022, the song was made available as one of the lead singles from Rema’s debut album, “Raves & Roses.” The record has had enormous success on a global scale since its release, which was amplified by the remix featuring Selena Gomez.

The Afrobeats song “Calm Down” became the first to reach 100 million views in less than three months, making it the fastest to do so.

Following the Selena Gomez remix, which saw the song peak at the eighth position on the U.K. Singles Chart and No. 35 on the Hot 100 of the U.S. Billboard, the song also received praise from other countries.

A few weeks after reaching 300 million views, the video eclipsed CKay’s “Love Nwantiti” to become the most-watched Nigerian music video on YouTube.
