Work of Art managed to sell over 13,000 units in the US alone during its debut week, showcasing the album’s strong appeal and the artist’s dedicated fan base. The achievement marks Asake’s second appearance on the Billboard 200 chart, after his debut with his debut album, “Mr. Steady” had an impact on the music industry.
The Billboard 200 is a prestigious and influential chart that ranks the most popular albums in the United States based on various metrics, including album sales, airplay performance, and radio airplay. It serves as an important indicator of the artist’s commercial success and influence on the American music market.
Asake’s presence on the Billboard 200 demonstrates his ability to captivate audiences and gain traction outside his home country, as the album also peaked at No. 1 on the UK’s Apple Music Top Albums chart and No. 3 for the US as well.
With access to the Billboard 200 albums chart exclusive to the US alone, Asake joins the ranks of popular Afrobeats artists like Wizkid, Burna Boy, and others who also scored their best debut on the chart since the evolution of the afrobeats sound. This achievement cements his status as a rising star and opens doors to future opportunities, collaboration and continued success in the music industry.
