Songs by two Nigerian artistes, Burna Boy and Tems, have been featured in Apple Music’s global song chart in 2022 as the giant music streamer released its end-of-year lists and provided listeners with data on their own most listened-to tunes.

“WAIT FOR YOU” by Future (feat Drake & Tems) placed third on the chart, while international carnival jam “Last Last” by Grammy Award winner, Burna Boy, placed 65th on the chart.

“Stay,” the smash hit by The Kid Laroi and Justin Bieber topped the song chart in 2022.

The data shows the growing presence of non-English-language tunes, with African songs on the rise on the Shazam chart as well as the global daily 100, while Japanese-language songs made big gains on the most-read lyrics chart.

“It’s really the rise of what was once very niche genres creeping into the mainstream, which is an exciting new development on the platform,” said Rachel Newman, global head of editorial.

Twenty-one non-English songs were in the global Top 100, more than double the number of songs last year.

Fifty-five Latin songs reached the Global Daily Top 100 in 2022 — up 22% from 2021. In 2022, six of the 50 J-pop songs to reach the chart placed in the top 10; last year none were in the top 10.
