The sounds of Afrobeats are making waves across genres, with Spotify’s recent list of the 100 Greatest R&B Songs of the Streaming Era featuring not one, but three Nigerian tracks.

Wizkid, a global Afrobeats superstar, landed at number 21 with his hit Essence, featuring the soulful vocals of Tems. The song’s infectious melody and captivating lyrics have garnered international acclaim, solidifying Wizkid’s position at the forefront of Afrobeats.

But Tems doesn’t stop there. She nabs two solo entries on the list, showcasing her own rising stardom. Free Mind sits at number 29, while Higher comes in at number 45. These tracks highlight Tems’ powerful vocals and ability to weave contemporary R&B influences with her Nigerian roots.

This recognition from Spotify underscores the growing influence of Afrobeats on the global music scene. With its television-worthy music videos, infectious rhythms, and soulful vocals, Afrobeats is captivating listeners worldwide.


Wizkid and Tems’ multiple placements on the list solidify Afrobeats’ place in the R&B conversation. Their success paves the way for other Nigerian artists and signifies a new wave of musical exchange between Africa and the global stage.
