Davido becomes the first artiste to record a No. 1 entry in three calendar years; 2020 with three off A Better Time, 2021 with “FOR YOU” and “Baddest Boy (Remix)” in 2022.

In addition, Skiibii’s “Baddest Boy (Remix)” with Davido becomes the most popular ever in chart history, breaking the record recently set by Fireboy DML & Ed Sheeran’s “Peru” on chart dated January 3, 2022 (“Peru’s” previous record was a result of massive airplay while “Baddest Boy (Remix)” is due to huge streaming numbers due to multiple versions of the song being available).
