Elsewhere on the Top 50; Adekunle Gold’s “High” with Davido returns to its No. 2 peak on the chart.

Plus, Burna Boy’s “Want It All” with Polo G debuts at No. 8 to give Burna Boy his fifth top ten entry in 2020 – the most of any artiste.

The Top 50 blends all-genre freemium streaming (Top Streaming Chart), radio airplay (Top Airplay Chart) and TV airplay (TV Top Songs Chart) in Nigeria. All charts will be dated and updated on Mondays, this week’s chart will be revealed on Monday, October 11, 2021

“Alcohol” tallied 6.07 million equivalent streams (up 86.2%) and 35.9 million in radio reach (up 67%).

In the process, it records the biggest streams by a song in a week since TurnTable Charts began tracking in July 2020, beating the previous record held by Davido’s “FEM” with 4.61 million equivalent streams.

Additionally, “Alcohol” becomes the most dominant No. 1 song ever in TurnTable Top 50 history, arriving with close to twice as many Top 50 chart points as the closest challenger, Adekunle Gold’s “High.” The juggernaut single holds a 1.6:1 lead over “High” on this week’s chart – the biggest ratio between a No. 1 and No. 2 song since the launch of the TurnTable Top 50 in November 2020.

As expected, it is now the song with the biggest total chart points in a week
