Tems has been on some wildfire shit this year as her feature on Wizkid’s Essence helped shoot the song to fame in the US. Landing a feature on Drake’s Certified Lover Boy album is another cherry on Tem’s sundae. Quite clearly, Tems didn’t come here to play. Here are 8 Tem’s songs that prove she is not your mate.
1. Try Me — Tems
This 2018 song shot Tems into the limelight quicker than she could say “o porr”. The hit snuck on many of us and three years down the line, I still want to randomly burst out screaming “Why you wanna try me?” in the middle of the market square.
While we were still trying to figure out 2020 and the pandemic, our caring queen gave us this sweet jam to use as background music for the times you wanted to have a mental breakdown. A top jam, for sure.
3. Soon — Blackmagic ft Tems
The guy who gave us Repete put Tems on Soon, the opener to his third album, Blackmagic Version 3.0. Once again, she shows her ability with a rendition that almost reminds you of Sade Adu. Also, let me use this opportunity to remind you that Blackmagic is GOATed.
4. The Key – Tems
This jam introduced us to Tem’s dexterity and ability to switch it up. It’s definitely a jam you won’t forget easily.
5. Trouble — DRB LasGidi ft Tems
Her sonorous chorus played no small part in giving this song the acclaim it deserves.
6. Looku Looku — Tems
This 2019 single introduced us to Tem’s ability to hold a note. The song is almost entrancing in its softness. Tems sabi ball. It’s a song about a man whose hoe ways led him to ruin. Because he be looku looku baby.
7. Mr Rebel — Tems
Our babe’s 2018 follow up to her hit single Try Me was a banger in its own right. She really flexed her songwriting muscles on this one quite comfortably.
8. Tales by Moonlight — Show Dem Camp ft. Tems
You know if Show Dem Camp is on it, it’s got to be a jam. Tems plays her part in this Afro vibes song.
