Asake’s “Lonely At The Top” Beats Record For Longest Running Song



Nigerian sensation, Asake has accomplished a remarkable milestone by tying for the longest-running number-one song on the Nigerian Radio chart.

After a phenomenal debut year in 2022, highlighted by a series of chart-topping singles and an outstanding debut album, Asake’s musical dominance has extended into 2023.

Asake’s smash single “Lonely At The Top” from his second album, “Work of Art”, has matched the number one record formerly held by Fireboy’s “Peru,” featuring Ed Sheeran, on the most recent TurnTable Radio list.

Between the chart week of September 15th, 2023, and September 21st, 2023, “Lonely At The Top” spent its tenth non-consecutive week at the pinnacle of the chart, equalling the record established by Fireboy’s “Peru” remix during 2021-2011.

Asake’s “Lonely At The Top” has become a fan favourite. This single is also on track to place a new number one record on the TurnTable Top 100 chart, which uniquely combines data from radio, premium and freemium streaming platforms, and television.

Surprisingly, this maga hit has tied Omah Lay’s “Godly” for the longest streak at the top of the TurnTable Top 100 chart with 11 consecutive weeks. The song is likely to surpass this milestone if it maintains its dominance in the upcoming week.
