“Tems stands in a league of her own because her sound is unlike any other. Her voice is exceptionally distinctive and original, reminiscent of the first time I heard Nina Simone. Both artists sing with profound emotion and conviction, making each word they sing resonate deeply. When Tems and I finally had the opportunity to meet last year at the Grammy Awards, we exchanged an outpouring of love and support.

I am confident that she will achieve great success because she possesses talent in writing, singing, and producing. My greatest wish for her is to become one of the biggest artists of her generation. Talent is one aspect, but how you treat people and yourself in this industry determines longevity, and I believe she will have a lasting impact because she is a beautiful person both inside and out.”

Tems is now gearing up for the release of her debut album, which both listeners and critics anticipate will propel her to even greater heights in her career.
