Tems sets record for daily Spotify streams by a Nigerian female artist

On June 7, 2024, boosted by the release of her debut album 'Born In The Wild', Tems accumulated 8 million streams which is a record for a Nigerian female artist.

For the opening day of her debut album, Tems recorded 5.33 million global streams which placed her second behind Ayra Starr who recorded 6.3 opening day streams for her recently released sophomore album 'The Year I Turned 21'.

Since achieving international success in 2021 courtesy of her dazzling contributions to Wizkid's global hit 'Essence', Tems has become one of the fastest-rising artists globally.

Her highly anticipated debut album 'Born In The Wild' packs 18 tracks and two collaborations with Nigerian superstar Asake and American rapper J Cole.

Ahead of the album release, Tems dropped two singles 'Me & U' and 'Love Me Jeje' which have recorded over 99 million streams and 32 million streams respectively. Both songs have been her most listened to on Spotify in the last 28 days.

The success of the lead singles is a testament to her super status and global popularity captured by the 21.4 million user-generated Spotify playlists her songs have been added to in the past 12 months.

Tems holds several records in the Nigerian music industry including being the first Nigerian female artist to win a Grammy awards when she won in 2022 for Best Melodic Rap Performance courtesy of Future's 'Wait For U' which features her and Drake.

She's also the first Nigerian artist to be nominated for the Oscar awards for her efforts in the soundtrack for Marvel's 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever'.
