“She’s got an amazing voice. Everything is special about Tems. Everything.”-WizKid as told in Rolling Stones.

Major congratulations are in order to #Tems and #Wizkid for their Hot 100 Top 10 Billboard October entry for the song “Essence” ft. #JustinBieber. This is the first time a Nigerian song has reached the Top 10 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Chart. This is also Tem’s first Top 10 and her first entry on the U.S. Billboard Chart altogether.

The Nigerian rising star broke out in 2018 with the release of her single “Rebel” and EP Broken Ears. Ever since then its been up and stuck for Tems! The voice and the vibes are undeniable. “Essence” stays on repeat for me and will definitely be the soundtrack to my next international vacation!
