Further solidifying his dominance in the music scene, Asake collaborated with Grammy and Academy Award winner H.E.R for the remix of his chart-topping hit single “Lonely At The Top“.
In 2023, he continued his remarkable musical journey, initiated in January 2022 with the release of his hit single “Omo Ope“. This journey reached its pinnacle, marking one of the most outstanding one-year runs in the history of Afrobeats.
The remix, launched on November 15, 2023, follows the song’s record-breaking chart-topping success in Nigeria, where it established a new record of 13 weeks as the longest number 1 song on TurnTable Top 100.
The inclusion of H.E.R. in the remix suggests Asake’s intention to replicate the Nigerian success of “Lonely At The Top” on the international stage.
The single, delving into themes of loneliness, emptiness, and distrust associated with success, is a standout track from Asake’s sophomore album “Work of Art”. It quickly became a fan favourite, gaining traction on TikTok and spreading to various platforms.
Asake’s 2023 has been nothing short of impressive, solidifying his position as one of the most sought-after artists in Afrobeats. Following the release of his sophomore album, the sensational superstar achieved a remarkable feat by selling out the prestigious O2 Arena.
Additionally, Asake earned a landmark achievement with his recent 2024 Grammy nomination for the hit single “Amapiano“, featuring Olamide.
The track received recognition in the Best African Song Performance category, further cementing Asake’s status as a rising star in the global music scene.
