How soon before Rema's "Calm Down" joins the half a billion YouTube views club?

This week we found out “Magic System”, a group  from Abidjan, have a song with nearly half a billion views on YouTube – “Magic in the Air”. We then matched it to Nigerian Rema’s “Calm Down”. Looks like its only a matter of time before Rema’s song overtakes the former. 

You might say the comparison is not fair since Magic System’s song was published over 3,000 days ago and Rema’s song is less than 400 days on YouTube. BUT this is about which Afrobeat songs have a billion views? Do you have any suggestions of billion views songs on YouTube? Please let us know. 


What do you think?
