Divine Ikubor, professionally known as Rema, the talent behind the hit song “Dumebi,” has once again made history with his chart-topping international sensation, ““Calm Down,” featuring the Grammy-winning American singer Selena Gomez.

Rema’s global presence skyrocketed with the release of the 2022 hit single “Calm Down,” featuring Selena Gomez. The remix reached an impressive No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and maintained the top spot on the U.S. Afrobeats Songs chart for an unprecedented 52 weeks. This monumental achievement not only marked Gomez’s first No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart but also secured Rema’s first chart-topping track. While Rema had previously achieved notable chart success, Gomez had come close with her song “Same Old Love,” which peaked at No. 3 eight years ago.

The remarkable success of “Calm Down” by Rema & Selena Gomez extends beyond charts and accolades; it has surpassed an astounding 1 billion streams on Spotify. This milestone makes it Rema’s first song and Selena’s sixth to achieve such a feat, solidifying its status as the first and only African song to achieve this monumental milestone.
