‘Site 15,’ the recently released album by Ghanaian duo, R2bees has debuted on the BillBoard World Chart.
The 15-track project featuring King Promise, WizKid and Burna Boy debuted on the chart at number 10.
It makes the ‘We Dey Vibe’ acts the fourth Ghana-based Ghanaian artiste to achieve the record after Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale and Samini.
The project was released on March 1, 2019.
Initially set for release in August 2018, it was pushed back after the group signed a deal with Universal Music Group, the world’s biggest music company.
Pae Dae, one half of the group claimed they pulled out of the deal at the last minute during a recent interview.
“We were supposed to do a record deal with Universal Music in the last quarter of the year. They were supposed to come on board but we pulled out last minute because we have been doing this for a minute and we have doing it on our own,” explained the act.
“Although they gave us 100% creative control we felt like we wanted to do what we wanted. If we were upcoming artiste, then it would have been a great deal but we have a solid fan base now and our streaming numbers are amazing so I told Mugeez we did this all by ourselves and we don’t have anything else on the side and so lets do it ourselves. And also we had already shot videos and so we didn’t know what a label could for us.”
