Wizkid’s ‘Made in Lagos’ might be competing with other albums in the Global Music Album Category at the 2022 Grammys.
Billboard confirmed that the album, which has received rave reviews since its release, has been submitted for the category previously won by Angelique Kidjo and fellow compatriot Burna Boy in the 2019 and 2020 editions, respectively.
Confirming the submission, a recent Billboard article said, “Wizkid’s Made in Lagos is vying for a nod in the recently renamed best global music album category.”
‘Essence’, the hit single from the album, peaked at number 19 on Billboard Hot 100, while the remix, which features American singer Justin Bieber currently sits at number 12 on the chart.
The project, which was released in October 2020, has been on a chart-topping run and has broken several records, a major one being the longest-charting African album on the Billboard World Albums charts, as it has spent a total of fifty weeks on the chart.
