Rising music sensation Tems is back with a new magnificent official video for her single ‘The Key‘
The new official video for ‘The Key‘ finds the Nigerian songstress as our triumphant leader on a mission to save the world. Eagerly anticipated as one of the most sought-after debuts in contemporary R&B, Tems’ For Broken Ears instantly topped the iTunes charts in four different countries upon release displaying the excitement around the multi-talented artist.
Tems has collaborated with a slew of exciting artists such as Khalid, Davido, Disclosure, and DRB as well as landing the coveted title of Apple’s newest Africa Rising Artist. Meanwhile, her feature on Wizkid‘s new track “Essence” has been No.1 on the BBC 1Xtra Airplay Chart for over 4 weeks and currently sits on the A-List.
The new EP For Broken Ears is a startling introduction to a fully formed creative force who refuses to play by anyone else’s rules. The deep richness to her vocal, reminiscent of Koffee or Tracy Chapman, undeniable hooks, and an additional blend of soul and language that is uniquely hers. From the carefree and vibey “Ice T” through to the introspective, vulnerable “Higher,” the EP runs through the full spectrum of human emotion yet always remaining both relatable, honest, and genuinely fun.
While still at the very early stages of her career Tems has already been given the title of a trailblazer, visionary, and innovator for her contribution to the current culture landscape in Nigeria. She’s played a huge part in the transformation of the conservative culture becoming the fittingly titled rebel gang leader – representing anyone who refuses to live up to traditional norms and the status quo. Raised on a diet of Aaliyah, Aṣa and Frank Ocean, her sound is a concoction of genres while also feeling totally new and youthful.
