The young singer who was born in the Isale Eko part of Lagos State, Nigeria has without a doubt confirmed her profile as an hallmark and a very plausible wave curator. Tems, who spent her childhood brewing her natural resources and brooding her dreams has found herself mounting charts and gaining grounds not only in the hearts of her fans but in the their structured playlists likewise. The release of 2018’s “Mr. Rebel” was a breakout moment for the singer and it’s undeniable that that acted as a milestone for her to have gotten the attention she’s receiving now.
Tems comes out with a fully written and constructed statement declaring her readiness to overwhelm the industry with her newly released collection of sounds/EP titled “For Broken Ears.” This EP was specially designed to minister healing and solitude to her listeners, a sense of realism coupled with escapism is the highlight of this piece of work. While exonerating her new baby, she said: “This is for anyone looking for an alternative to the darkness. This is for those who needs a break from the toxicity they consume and supply on a daily basis,” Tems wrote on Instagram on the day of the album’s release. “This is for the Rebels because they expected us to follow them but we made our own path, by the Grace of God. This is FOR BROKEN EARS.”
Tems’ sound is unanimously modern and hip with a touch of high road freedom. Tems had earlier on shared a slice of the deliciously prepared album with her audio release during the week titled “Damages” which has presumptuously found a place and abode in the hearts if it’s listeners owing singularly to its peculiarity. The EP is laced with an interlude entitled after the singer’s initials-“Temilade Interlude.” Lead single “Damages” is the album’s most danceable track, and it comes with a video that functions as a documentary of what parties used to be like before COVID-19.
“The Key” which comes next is a dispensation of strength to people who might have been at some point disappointed by those they had held on to. The lyrical content sells it out-“When the world is going out, when the earth is going in, this is the mind, this is the light, this is the time, this is the way,” she sings. “I see the dream coming before me.” Other great tracks on this project may include “Interference,” “Ice T,” “Free Mind,” and “Higher.” Tems is really fighting the good fight, with her vocals as her ready and steady weapon, she’s channeling great minds alike on a path of mental freedom.
