Nigerian music star Tems just released her debut album, “Born In The Wild,” on June 7th, 2024. It’s setting the world on fire! On that day, Tems shattered the record for a Nigerian female artist on Spotify. She reached 8 million streams. This accomplishment dethroned her record of 5.33 million streams for her album’s opening day, placing her as runner-up to Ayra Starr’s recent album.

Tems’ meteoric rise began with her feature on Wizkid’s global smash hit “Essence” in 2021.

“Born In The Wild” is a sprawling 18-track journey. It features collaborations with Nigerian superstar Asake and acclaimed American rapper J. Cole. To prime fans for the album’s release, Tems dropped two incredibly popular singles, “Me & U” and “Love Me Jeje,” which have already amassed millions of streams each. The phenomenal success of these singles is a testament to her status as a global music force, and “Born In The Wild” is on track to be a commercial juggernaut.

Furthermore, Tems’ achievements extend far beyond the realm of her chart-topping debut album. She’s a history-maker in the Nigerian music industry. In 2022, she became the first Nigerian female artist to win a Grammy Award. She was recognised for Best Melodic Rap Performance on Future’s hit “Wait For U,” featuring her and Drake.

Her talents aren’t limited to the music world; Tems also holds the distinction of being the first Nigerian artist to be nominated for an Oscar, thanks to her contributions to the soundtrack for the highly anticipated Marvel superhero film “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”

Lost And Found: Simi unveils tracklist for upcoming album | Fab.ng

Award-winning singer Simi has finally revealed the exciting details surrounding her upcoming album, titled “Lost and Found.” Simi took to her social media platforms to unveil the highly anticipated tracklist. This sparked a wave of excitement amongst her fans. She playfully engaged her audience, asking them to comment on which song they’re most eagerly awaiting.

The album boasts a total of 14 tracks. Simi isn’t afraid to collaborate with a variety of talented artists, and “Lost and Found” reflects this. Fans can expect features from some of Nigeria’s biggest names, including Asa, Lojay, Ebenezer Obey, and rappers Ladipoe and Falz.

To round out this impressive roster, Tiwa Savage makes an appearance, reuniting with Simi after their hit collaboration “Men Are Crazy.” The song is already a fan favourite and is available to stream on various platforms.

“Borrow Me Your Baby,” another pre-released single featuring Falz, has also been generating buzz online. The release of the tracklist only intensifies the anticipation for “Lost and Found.” The song hints at a potential blend of Simi’s signature sound with the unique styles of her collaborators.

Whether it’s the soulful harmonies with Asa, the smooth rap verses from Ladipoe, or the playful energy brought by Falz, “Lost and Found” promises to be a well-rounded album catering to a wide range of musical preferences. With established hits already out and a star-studded list of collaborators, Simi’s upcoming release is poised to be a major success.

Fans can get ready to experience “Lost and Found” on Friday, July 5th, 2024.

In an earlier Instagram post, Simi offered a glimpse into the heart of the album. She described “Lost and Found” as a journey of rediscovering her creative spark. The album, according to Simi, is all about reconnecting with her passion for “music, melody, and love stories.” This introspective approach hints at a potentially raw and personal listening experience.

Simi, however, doesn’t want her fans to get too caught up in the backstory. While the creative process might have been significant for her, she encourages listeners to simply enjoy the music itself. She urges them to “enjoy the album without putting too much attention on the circumstances that brought it to them.”

Instead, she hopes that listeners will connect with the emotions she poured into the music. She wants them to “feel all she felt while recording the songs in this masterpiece.”

This heartfelt message suggests that “Lost and Found” is more than just an album; it’s a culmination of creative exploration and raw emotion, waiting to be experienced by the world.

Kendrick Lamar Asks Drake To Return 2Pac’s Ring If He Wants Some Respect

Kendrick Lamar asks Drake to return 2 Pac's ring | Fab.ng

The war of words between rap titans Kendrick Lamar and Drake shows no signs of abating.

At a recent concert in Los Angeles, Kendrick Lamar threw down the gauntlet at Drake. This reignited the feud with a fiery performance of his diss tracks “Not Like Us” and “Euphoria.”

The electrifying atmosphere at the Forum on June 19th, 2024 was a testament to the impact of “Not Like Us.” The crowd, a sea of Kendrick supporters, roared their approval. They sang along to every word of the track that shattered streaming records on Spotify in the US. This wasn’t just a performance; it was a full-blown battle cry.

But Kendrick wasn’t content with just one diss track. During his performance of “Euphoria,” he took things a step further. With a few pointed lyric tweaks, he aimed a direct message at Drake with, “Give me Tupac’s ring back and I might give you a little respect” instead of “Matter of fact, I ain’t even bleed him yet, can I bleed him.”

This back-and-forth between the rappers has become a media spectacle. Fans eagerly await Drake’s next move and wonder how he’ll respond to Kendrick’s fiery performance.

According to Billboard, Drake bought the ring for $1 million and the Canadian rapper has constantly boasted about his purchase. He even flaunted it in the music video for his Kendrick Lamar diss track “Family Matters.”
