As many expected, Beyonce‘s “Brown Skin Girl” featuring Wizkid and Saint JHN, has made a Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The song which is off “The Lion King: The Gift” album and also features vocals from Beyonce’s daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, debuted at number 76. ‘Brown Skin Girl’ is clearly a favourite off the album as it’s been a hot topic on social media and also gotten loads of radio play.
The Billboard Hot 100 rankings are based on sales, radio play, and online streaming in the United States. It comes as no surprise that “Brown Skin Girl” made the cut, as its powerful message of acceptance and validation has resonated with a lot of black women and girls.
‘Brown Skin Girl’ is Wizkid’s second Billboard Hot 100 entry as three years ago, he was a feature on Drake‘s “One Dance”, helping Starboy nab his first number 1 hit on the US chart.
This week’s Billboard charts also sees a record broken. Lil Nas X’s smash hit, “Old Town Road” reigns at No. 1 on the charts for the 17th week.
