On the heels of her #1 breakouts with Drake and Wizkid, emerging Lagos, Nigeria-based singer/songwriter Tems releases her brand new single “Crazy Tings” from her forthcoming EP out September 15th. In addition to the release of her new music, Tems is set to ignite the stage on her first U.S. headlining shows coming up the next few weeks in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago along with a set at Afropunk ATL.
Tems has been having a standout year since releasing her last EP For Broken Ears. Recently, Tems was featured on the standout track “Fountains” on Drake’s latest album Certified Lover Boy and was featured on “the song of the summer” “Essence” with Afrobeats star Wizkid, which recently released version featuring Justin Bieber. The original version just hit #1 at Urban Radio and #1 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart this week.
Tems is a singer/songwriter/self-taught producer that writes, arranges and produces her music with a genre-blending sound that fuses R&B with soul, reggae and more in her own unique way. She’s been covered and received praise from a variety of press outlets including Vogue, FADER, HYPEBEAST, Pitchfork and more. She’s also worked with various artists such as Khalid, Disclosure and Davido. Beyond music, Tems is a gifted clothing designer who has created some of the outfits she will be wearing on her forthcoming U.S. tour.
