Asake breaks Apple Music record with his debut album

Budding Nigerian singer, Ahmed Ololade better known as Asake, has made history on Apple Music with his debut album, Mr Money With The Vibe.

The YBNL act released ‘Mr Money with the Vibe’ on Wednesday, September 7 and it received widespread acceptance.

A week after the album dropped, it has bagged six record-making milestones on Apple Music worldwide.

‘Mr. Money With The Vibe’ recorded the biggest opening day for an African album in Apple Music history.

The album also broke the record for the biggest opening three days for an African album in Apple Music history.

In a record-breaking trend, 9 songs off the album got into the Global Daily Top 100.

Furthermore, in a feat never before accomplished by an African album, ‘Mr. Money With The Vibe’ reached Number One on the Top Albums Chart in 31 countries worldwide, including Nigeria, the U.K., and Ireland.

Multiple songs off of Asake’s album reached the Daily Top 100 in 60 countries worldwide, including 26 where they reached the top 10.

The leading songs off the album also reached Number One in 14 countries worldwide.

CorrectNG reported earlier that the rave of the moment talked about on the process of producing his debut album, MMWTV and input of his boss, Olamide.

During an interview with Ehiz on Apple Music Africa Now, Asake was asked how long it took to record the 12-track album.

The Terminator crooner said that his recording process is not programmed or scheduled because sometimes he can go a whole month without recording a single song, whereas there are days he would wake up and feel like making seven songs at once.

The young music act also said than he can choose to stop recording at random and it all depends on his mood.

He, however, said that making Mr Money with the Vibe was a stress free process because Olamide helped make it so.

Asake said everything went as planned while working on the project and he is happy with how it all turned out.
