Rema's latest achievement is nothing short of extraordinary, solidifying his place as a trailblazing force in the music industry. With his debut album 'Raves & Roses', he has achieved a remarkable feat by securing the record for the longest-charting African album on the illustrious Billboard 200 chart. Clocking an impressive 30th week on the chart, Rema has not only broken previous records but has also etched his name in music history. 


This impressive achievement showcases Rema's ability to exceed the prior record set by Nigerian sensation Wizkid and his RIAA Gold-certified fourth album 'Made In Lagos'. Yet, his victory extends far past the confines of his nation. Through breaking King Sunny Ade's four-decade-old record, Rema has garnered the recognition of being the Nigerian artist with the longest-running album on the US Billboard 200 chart.


King Sunny Ade's iconic album, “Juju Music,” had held this coveted position since 1982, a staggering 18 years before Rema's birth. The album's 29-week run on the Billboard 200 chart had set an unparalleled standard for Nigerian projects until Rema's 'Raves & Roses' emerged victorious, securing its 30th week on the chart. 


The Billboard 200 chart, which measures the most popular albums of the week in the United States based on multi-metric consumption, has borne witness to Rema's remarkable journey.
