Nigerian singer and Grammy Nominee, Burna Boy has made history as his “Twice As Tall” album debuts at number 54 on the Billboard 200, the highest charting Nigerian album ever on the Billboard 200.

‘Twice As Tall’ is Burna Boy’s fifth studio album which has occupied the thoughts of many around the world and due to that the new album is the best selling album this week in that category.

The Billboard charts took to its Twitter account to make the announcement that Burna Boy’s ‘Twice As Tall’ had moved up to number 54 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.


‘Twice As Tall’ at number 54 on the Billboard 200 albums chart makes Burna Boy the first Nigerian artiste to go that far on the chart.

This is a new peak position for Burna Boy after “African Giant” peaked at No. 104 on the same charts. Three years prior to that, Wizkid‘s “Sounds From The Other Side” had also peaked at No. 107 on the same charts. This also marks a new peak for any Nigerian album on America’s major album chart presence.

Before now, the album was number 1 in 48 countries on Apple Music during its first week of release.


Burna Boy currently has one of the largest fan bases of any African artist due to his unique style. In 2019, he had the most streams on Spotify and gained 5 million more in the first hour of his ‘Twice As Tall’ release.
