Brendan makes history on Top-20


The new music duo, Ons, make their entry into the RNews Afrikaans Top-20 this week with their debut single, “That song”.

Ruvé Erasmus and Marco van Deventer form part of this new music duo and wrote “Daai sitaje” together.

“That song” debuts on the top 20 in 9th place.

Eloff’s “Vlerke” loses its no. 1 place on the top 20 and falls by one place to no. 2.

Brendan Peyper reigns supreme in the top 20 this week with his latest single, “Soen soos wat jy dans”, which enters the hit parade in the first position.

Only a handful of artists, such as Jo Black and Appel, managed to enter the top 20 directly in the first position.

“Kiss like you dance”‘s music video has already been viewed more than 110,000 times since it was uploaded on YouTube a few days ago.
