Burna Boy New Album Becomes Highest Ranked Ever On UK Official Albums Chart For An African

Few months ago, Burna Boy scored his first entry into the UK charts, thanks to his feature on Dave’s “Location”. Now, he’s made his way back, with his latest album, African Giant, debuting at No. 16 on the UK albums chart, making it the highest-ranking African album ever.

Like the Billboard charts are to music in America, the Official Charts, which are compiled by the Official Charts Company, tabulate the relative weekly popularity of songs and albums in the UK, separating them into the ‘Official Singles Chart’ and the ‘Official Albums Chart’. 

Ever since Outside was released, Burna Boy’s music has been thriving all around the world, so this milestone comes as no surprise. African Giant has also debuted at No, 104 on ‘Billboard’s 200’ chart, showing that his music is really being appreciated worldwide.
