Tems Releases Debut Album, “Born In The Wild”



'Born In The Wild': Tems releases debut album |

Afrobeats fans can finally silence their anticipation! Tems, the genre-bending Nigerian songstress, has unveiled her much-awaited debut album, “Born In The Wild.”

A Fully Realised Debut

Dropping on June 7, 2024, “Born In The Wild” isn’t just a collection of songs; it’s a meticulously crafted 18-track experience. Interspersed with two interludes, the album promises a diverse soundscape sure to keep listeners captivated.

Tems isn’t going solo on this sonic journey, though. Afrobeats heavyweight Asake and American rap icon J. Cole lend their talents to guest appearances, adding even more flavour to the mix.

Familiar tracks get a fresh look

Tems has already whetted fans’ appetites with some pre-release singles. “Me & U,” a powerful declaration of love and loyalty, has garnered critical acclaim and even scored two nominations for the prestigious 2024 BET Awards.

“Love Me Jeje,” a playful and infectious song, samples a classic track by Seyi Sodimu and Shaffy Bello, showcasing Tems’ respect for her musical heritage while adding a fresh, modern twist.

For those who can’t wait for the full album release, Tems has been offering tantalising glimpses of “Born In The Wild” during live performances.

Fans tuning into NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series were treated to a stripped-down rendition of “Unfortunate,” while viewers of The Tonight Show star Jimmy Fallon got to witness the electrifying energy of “Love Me Jeje.” These live performances are a testament to the raw emotion and captivating energy Tems pours into her music.

From rising star to global phenomenon

“Born In The Wild” isn’t just an album; it’s the culmination of Tems’ remarkable journey. This isn’t her first foray into the music world. “Born In The Wild” follows her critically acclaimed 2022 EP “If Orange Was A Place,” showcasing her artistic growth and evolution. But the real turning point came with her show-stopping performance on Wizkid’s global hit “Essence.”

That single performance catapulted Tems onto the international stage, and she hasn’t looked back since. Collaborations with music royalty like Beyonce, Drake, and Future solidified her status as a global phenomenon, even earning her a Grammy Award for Best Melodic Rap Performance.

A new chapter begins

“Born In The Wild” marks a pivotal moment in Tems’ career. It’s the culmination of years of dedication, talent, and unwavering passion. This highly anticipated album is more than just a collection of songs; it’s a statement of arrival.

With “Born In The Wild,” Tems is ready to solidify her place as a global superstar, and the music world is eagerly waiting to hear what she has to offer.
