The world famous entertainment magazine Rolling Stone has named it the Best African Song of 2022 in its latest issue.
Influential entertainment publishing house Rolling Stone has released an exclusive list of the 50 Best Afropop Songs of 2022 in a list tagged “Best Afropop Songs of 2022”. The list consists of the biggest songs from Africa that dominated the entire year of 2022.
The list saw Nigerian artists take center stage and occupy the highest number of positions on the chart, but what got many excited was the fact that Rolling Stone magazine named Burna Boy’s Nigerian hit “Last Last” the biggest song of 2022.
Rolling Stone explained the reason for this choice, and it was:
Burna Boy’s crusade to the top of world music has been as inspiring as it has been relentless. In support of the four genre-defining projects he’s launched in the past five years, Burna has spent most of that time on the road, performing at venues ranging from stadiums to parties, and spreading the Damini gospel. It’s fitting, then, that “Last Last,” his inevitable summer anthem-turned-song of the year, is a cathartic acknowledgment of the sacrifices he’s made along the way (i.e., saying “bye-bye x, for the love of [his] Life”). Via a truly witty heart to Toni Braxton’s Chopstix’s “He Wasn’t Man Enough,” Burna delivers an instant Afropop breakup song that will have us crying out for “igbo and shayo” for years to come.
Oxlade also came in at number two with his record breaking “Ku Lo Sa,” Asake at number three with “Sungba (remix)” featuring Burna Boy and Ayra Starr at number four with smash single “Rush”.
