Tems baby Makes History as “Wait For U” Debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100


If you needed a reminder that Afrobeat stars are still exploding in the biggest music market in the world, Future‘s collaboration with Drake and Tems on “Wait For U,” which debuted on the Billboard Hot 100, should be enough.

“Wait For U” debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 list. The song marks Future’s second Hot 100 – and his first as the main singer. It’s Drake’s tenth No. 1 and Tems’ first.

Wizkid‘s popular afrobeat anthem “Essence” featuring Tems reached the Billboard top 10 chart last year, becoming the first Nigerian song to do so.

“Wait For U” was released on April 29 on Future’s album I Never Liked You via Freebandz/Epic Records, and its official video premiered on May 5. The song is the 1,137th No. 1 in the Hot 100’s 63-year history, and the 61st to debut at the top.
