The explosion of various social media challenges and trends centred around a specific piece of music or simply a verse, specifically on short form videos, has not only driven discovery of new music and artists but has also helped catapult several African artists into the spotlight.

To celebrate the songs that have captured global attention,  Spotify unveiled its Internet Famous playlist – a compilation of the top songs driving the latest #challenges.

 

No internet famous collection for 2021 would be complete without the addition of love nwantiti by Nigerian Afrobeats and R&B singer CKay.  The song that has had the world making up their own lyrics while sound-tracking multitudes of videos across the world raked up over 152 179 500 streams globally on Spotify in 2021.

 

South Africa’s now famous gospel-influenced house song export from Master KG – ‘Jerusalema became a viral sensation in early 2020. The track gave rise to the #JerusalemaChallenge, which saw global personalities such as Christina Ronaldo, Janet Jackson, Leslie Jordan and more participating.  The perfect blend of African sounds was solidified when Master KG collaborated with AfroBeats star Burna Boy on the ‘Jerusalema’ remix.  This collaboration saw millions of fans singing along to lyrics in local isiZulu and Nigeria’s Yoruba languages.

 

The Jerusalema (feat. Burna Boy & Nomcebo Zikode) [Remix] and ‘love nwantiti’ are only two of the tracks featured on Spotify’s Internet Famous playlist,  which also includes several local hits that have been the creative driving force for music lovers and content creators alike.

 

Enjoy ‘66’ by Felo Le Tee, Myztro, ‘SQUIDE GAME – AMAPIANO’ by Kvng Vinci, Young Stunna and ‘Adiwele’ featuring Kabza De Small and fellow Scorpion King DJ Maphorisa and more

 

The dance challenge inspired by emerging DJ Lungile ‘Uncle Waffles’ Zwane also appears on the playlist.  And it wouldn’t be internet famous without the latest song to take South Africa by storm, ‘Nkao Tempela’ by Ch’occo, Mellow & Sleazy.

 

Stay in the know with the continuously emerging viral songs blowing up on social media by simply liking the Internet Famous playlist to save it to your library and discover why these tracks are being played on repeat worldwide!
