NIGERIAN SINGER TEMS, ONLY AFRICAN ARTIST TO FEATURE ON DRAKES NEW ALBUM CLB

By  | 

Nigerian fast rising singer/songwriter Tems features on Canadian rapper Drake’s sixth studio album, which is scheduled for release today. The album is titled CLB (Certified Lover Boy). Drake made the announcement on a couple of billboard adverts which were inserted in Lagos Nigeria, that reads “Hey Nigeria, Tems is on CLB.” Tems later confirmed the news on her Instagram account, she captioned the image, “mans said Nigerians must see Tems in large font!”. Tems is on a song titled ‘Fountain’.

2021 has definitely been an amazing year for Tems which saw a record she featured on break new grounds for Afro beats. She featured on Wizkids ‘Essence’ off the album ‘Made In Lagos’ and it has gone on to achieve major success all over the world. The record has become a hit in the United States blowing up across North American charts and even getting a Justin Bieber remix, it has become the first Afro beats record to enter the Billboard Hot 100 charts. It has continued to rise in the charts to Top 20 and is currently the number one song on the Billboard R&B charts. On August 31, 2021, the Nigerian singer become BET Amplified Artist of The Month of August 2021. The singer is not stopping at all; she recently revealed that she will be dropping more songs in 2021.

Drake has of course featured and collaborated with a number of Nigerian artists in the past, most notably with Wizkid on “One Dance,” “Come Closer” and more.

Tems is the only African to feature on Drake’s new album, and other notable features include Lil Durk, The baby, TY Dollar sign, Yebba, Young Thug, 21 Savage and allegedly Jay Z is also on the album but that is yet to be confirmed.

Tems’s success of her 2019’s ‘Try Me’ saw her emerge into a big name in the music industry. So it is no surprise that Drake is not the first Northern American artist she has worked with and he certainly will not be the last with one of her previous collaborations being DJ Khalid on his song ‘Know Your Worth’ alongside Davido.
