Soulful Singer Tems Sets The Record Straight In New Single, ‘Try Me’


Singer, songwriter, and up and coming producer, Tems, is back with a banging new single, ‘Try Me’.

The talented singer, popular for her earlier singles ‘Mr. Rebel’, ‘Looku Looku’ and ‘Falling’ – a collaboration with rapper Ladipoe, takes us on an emotional journey with her deep and soulful voice.

Tems’ passionate, powerful, yet soothing vocals, gives listeners a peek into her mind. She allows listeners to tap into her frustration, and takes them on a journey through her process of overcoming her challenges, and reclaiming her power. Accompanied by the sound of strings and a light bass in the background, the Isale Eko native sings about being held back from truly growing, moving forward, and shining on her own terms.

The singer’s unique and distinctly urban sound is infused with a mixture of alternative RnB and Neo-Soul. The delivery of her message on the track makes it clear that music is her true form of emotional expression.

With musical inspirations like Lauryn Hill, Asa, Burna Boy, Amy Whinehouse and Frank Ocean, it’s no surprise that the Nigerian songstress is able to capture a deep wave of emotions in one heartfelt performance. By the end of the song, having showcased her remarkable vocal range, she declares that no one will suppress her or her shine, despite their efforts to ‘try her’, embodying the saying that what doesn’t kill you, will only make you stronger.

‘Try Me’ is an incredible addition to the singer’s already impressive catalogue. With this track, Tems continues to show that she is one of the top emerging sounds coming out of Nigeria, and with her quality of music, she is capable of redefining the Nigerian music scene one musical note at a time.
