The album has been received positively across the globe and is currently on a run of a record 50 weeks on the Billboard World Albums Chart with the single ‘Essence’ from the album peaking at number 9 a few weeks ago.
‘Essence’ already certified Platinum in the United States of America also has a remix which features Canadian singer Justin Bieber. The deluxe version of the Made in Lagos album released in August 2021has four additional tracks including the ‘Essence (Remix)’ and ‘Mood’ featuring Buju.
