Nigerian alternative R&B singer, songwriter and producer, Tems releases her six-tracked EP titled ‘FOR BROKEN EARS‘.

This comes a week after she released the audio of the lead single from the EP ‘Damages’ and a day after premiering the video.

Tems, whose real name is Temilade Openiyi, serves six beautiful tracks on this EP, producing four of them. This young talent also worked with Nigerian producer, Oddio and alternative music producer, Spax on two songs that make up the highly anticipated E.P.

Each of these tracks speaks about being free from Life’s different challenges and obstacles; a core reflection of both internal and external fears, frustrations, and challenges a person faces on the journey to being a true version of themselves.

With this EP, Tems bares her soul and shows her vulnerability and imperfections as a person first, before fine-tuning it all into a musical journey, aligning her among the fresh young artistes to look out for in the future, a future that is fast becoming a fusion of sounds from different music genres.

‘DAMAGES‘, the first video, off the EP released on Thursday, September 24, 2020, sees a sassy Tems letting it all hang out in the midst of the engaging pull of the talking drums, the chaos and the activity around her. She’s oblivious to it all as she oozes a confidence and growth that comes after investing a lot in unsure relationships and finally taking a stand.

Tems Damages Lyrics

Yeah
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
Classic
Back then when I was a new youngie
Surely you were tryna run on me
I’ve been, I been going on my own
I been, I been doing things unknown
Since day one you running right back
Save the drama you running off track
Is a one life, you tell me one life
One time, you tell me one time
Open your eyes, open your eyes baby
Can you be wise? ‘Cause you are my pride baby
I’m on a way I’m on the run baby
Leave me alone, leave me alone, take it back now
I put you on there
Say you want chance to hold it on me
I finna hold it back
Turn you right ’round
Taking my way
So tell me what you need from me now
I’m not what you need to be now
‘Cause I’m done with it now
No more damages now
Said tell me what you need from me now
I’m not what you need to be now
‘Cause I’m done with it now
No more damages no-no
(No more damage)
Back then when I was a baby girl
I was yours and you were my world
Tell me what you wanna do for me now
Take it down and I would hold you to run my race
Could you run it right there?
Run my race ’cause you take it right there
I’ve been down, I’ve been running right there
I’ve been out, could you take it back there?
Pull up tonight I’m might be risky
But Mr man forget the whiskey
But you still wanna get back with me
You tryna to be the one to deal with
Don’t call my phone, you’re not a mad man
You missed the way, inna the one chance
I live my life don’t need you with me
Yeah-yeah
So tell me what you need from me now
I’m not what you need to be now
‘Cause I’m done with it now
No more damages now
Said tell me what you need from me now
You’re not where I need to be now
‘Cause I’m done with it now
No more damages no-no
So tell me what you need from me now
I’m not what you need to be now
‘Cause I’m done with it now
No more damages now
Said tell me what you need from me now
I’m not what you need to be now
‘Cause I’m done with it now
No more damages no-no
(No more damage)

Tems damages lyrics

“Wanna lock me away? I’m winning. You wanna add to my pain? I’m shining,” belts Tems on “Try Me,” a feminist ballad that’s equally powerful as a stance against any kind of oppression: physical, mental or existential.

“Try Me” is the breakout single by the newcomer, whose other high notes of 2019 include her single “Looku Looku” and a feature on Lady Donli’s.

Enjoy Your Life.
