Master KG’s hit song “Jerusalema” has been regarded as the most trending song across the globe.
On Tuesday, Shazam, an Apple Inc. application, used to identify music, movies, advertising, and television shows, had announced that the song which features South African vocalist Nomcebo is the most searched song on its app.
The upbeat gospel-influenced house song was initially released on 29 November 2019 and has since then earned the positive response of fans online. The music video was released on 21 December. “Jerusalema” was later included on Master KG’s second album of the same title, released in January 2020.
The song was eventually released on streaming services on 10 July 2020 after it went viral during mid-2020, garnering international reaction due to the #JerusalemaChallenge. The #JerusalemaChallenge spawned dance videos from many countries, including Italy, Spain, France, Jamaica and Canada.
A remix featuring Nigerian singer Burna Boy was released on 19 June 2020, which placed the song in the US Billboard charts.
