Tems drops new single 'Not An Angel' ahead of debut album


Nigerian singer-songwriter, Tems, has once again graced the airwaves with her latest offering, a captivating single titled, Not An Angel. This fresh release comes hot on the heels of her preceding single, Me & U, which sparked excitement among fans breaking a brief hiatus.

Not An Angel stands as Tems' second solo offering for the year. More than just a standalone track, it serves as a prelude to the much-anticipated debut album slated to drop in 2024. As she unveils this new single, Tems beckons her listeners to embark on a sonic odyssey that foreshadows the depth and diversity that her forthcoming album is set to offer.

The lyrical narrative of the track, Not An Angel, delves into the complexities of a love that has withered over time, portraying the singer's decisive choice to liberate herself from its emotional confines. With poignant lines such as "I don't need you looking for me, all you did was give me nothing," Tems candidly expresses the weariness of a love that failed to reciprocate. The song is a poignant reflection on the intricacies of relationships, where the artist skillfully uses her lyrics to articulate the emotions of disillusionment and the empowerment found in letting go.

The production of the track is a collaborative effort, with the veteran record producer Sarz joining forces with Tems to craft a the backdrop that seamlessly complements the emotional depth of the lyrics. The result is a song that captivates both the hear and the senses.
