The Nigerian sensation delivers five exclusive tracks on the quasi-surprise EP that is dedicated to her closest fans.
Tems is on a roll. In the last few months, the singer went from being a local R&B favorite to an international sensation, appearing on tracks with North-American superstars such as Khalid and Justin Bieber, as well as featuring in Drake’s Certified Lover Boy, the biggest album debut of all time on streaming platforms. Following her debut solo project, For Broken Ears, released last year, she now releases If Orange Was A Place, teased two days ago with the single “Crazy Tings.”
The choice of this warm color in the record’s title resonates with the ambiance of the project, in line with the artistic direction of For Broken Ears. Over five tracks, Tems opens up, singing about seduction, hope and romantic deboirs. Her mellow Afrobeats and neo-soul cocktail blends perfectly with her singular vocals, which express nostalgia and desire in a unique way compared to the Afropop standards. Fully produced by the Ghanaian GuiltyBeatz, the EP also features American R&B star Brent Faiyaz on the melancholic “Found.”
If Orange Was A Place, available on all platforms.
