Chart Data, A music review account on Twitter has now verified that the song, Essence, featuring Tems has now officially sold over 1 million units in the U.S.
Essence, an Afrobeat song, off Wizkid’s most recent body of work, “Made In Lagos” is the 11th track released on the 30th October 2020. Essence became the official “Summer Song” despite being heavily criticized by fans and critics alike.
The song also features Tems, a 26-year-old singer, songwriter, and record producer.
In July, “Essence” broke onto the rather ‘difficult’ American charts, debuting at Number 82 on the Hot 100 and Number 84 on the RS 100.
However, following its unpredicted remix with Justin Bieber, the song is not toping on both charts.
