“Sensational” has been building at multiple radio formats: It rises 11-9 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, 16-10 on Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay and 16-14 on Rhythmic Airplay and debuts at No. 30 on Adult R&B Airplay. On the all-format Radio Songs chart, it pushes 49-44.

Davido, from Osun State, Nigeria, has become one of the most prominent Afrobeats musicians of the past decade. He has released four studio LPs in his career: Omo Baba Olowo in 2012, A Good Time (2019), A Better Time (2020) and Timeless (March 2023). His two most recent albums reached Nos. 170 and 37 on the Billboard 200, respectively, marking his first appearances on the chart.

Davido has also posted 25 songs on the Billboard U.S. Afrobeats Songs chart. That’s the fourth most among all artists, dating to the list’s 2022 launch, after only Burna Boy (44), Asake (34) and Wizkid (27). Of those 25 hits, three hit the top 10: “Stand Strong,” featuring Sunday Service Choir (No. 9 in 2022); “Unavailable,” featuring Musa Keys (No. 3, 2023); and “Over Dem” (No. 10, 2023).
