Wizkid Makes Billboard’s Decade-end Charts Hot 100s

Ten biggest acts of the 2010s

Nigerian music star, Wizkid is no doubt one of the biggest music stars to come out of Africa and he is closing 2020 in a big way as he is the only Nigerian artist to be named by Billboard on its Decade-end charts 100s.

Thanks to his feature on Canadian rapper, Drake’s hit song, “One Dance” that placed 35th on the list.

The list comprises some of the biggest songs released in the 2010s and has musicians like Bruno Mars, Rihanna, Cardi B, Adele, Ed Sheeran, Travis Scott, Nicki Minaj, among many others making the list.

When the decade began, the Billboard 200 albums chart was based purely on weekly sales. In December 2014, as retail waned and streaming swelled, the survey switched to a hybrid methodology ranking multi-metric consumption, as measured in equivalent album units (with units comprising traditional album sales, track equivalent albums and streaming equivalent albums). In early 2017, most genre album charts followed suit.

Similarly, in 2010, the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart largely blended download sales and radio airplay. Streaming joined the list’s data feed on a widespread level in March 2012, and by late 2015 it became, on average, the Hot 100’s (and corresponding hybrid genre song charts’) dominant metric.

Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk!,” featuring Bruno Mars, reigns as the No. 1 Hot 100 hit of the 2010s, having commanded the weekly chart for 14 weeks in 2015.

LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem,” featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock, claims the Hot 100’s No. 2 decade-end spot, after it led for six weeks in 2011 (amid a 68-week chart run overall, the fifth-longest ever), while Ed Sheeran wraps the 2010s at No. 3 with “Shape of You,” a 12-week leader in 2017.
