From its initial release, “Calm Down” captivated global audiences with its infectious melody, impeccable production, and Rema’s distinctive vocals.

The song, featured as one of the lead singles on Rema’s 2022 debut album ‘Raves & Roses,’ achieved widespread commercial success, reaching unprecedented heights after a remix featuring American popstar Selena Gomez.

Now in its 68th week on the Billboard Pop Airplay chart, ‘Calm Down’ has surpassed the previous record held by Harry Styles’ ‘As It Was,’ making it the longest-charting song in the history of the chart.

This remarkable feat adds to the list of accolades for ‘Calm Down,’ including being the first African song to claim the top spot on the Billboard Pop Airplay chart, the first African song to endure 52 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, the longest-running No. 1 song in the history of the Billboard Afrobeats songs chart, and the first Afrobeats song to exceed 1 billion streams on Spotify.
