According to reports from the chart news website Chart Data, Tems, a well-known Nigerian artist, has already amassed more than a billion Spotify streams overall.
By crossing the one billion Spotify stream threshold, she joins Burna Boy, Wizkid, CKay, and Davido as Afrobeats artists. Burna Boy, Wizkid, and CKay are the other musicians who have accomplished the accomplishment.
Tems’ career has taken off since she featured on Wizkid’s worldwide hit single “Essence,” which later had a Justin Bieber remix and reached at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100.
On his 2021 album “Certified Lover Boy,” Drake featured her on the song “Fountain.” Along with Drake, she would also appear on Future’s “Wait For U,” which debuted at the top of the Billboard Hot 100.
She most recently appeared on Beyonce’s dance album Renaissance, namely the song “Grace.”
The fact that Tems has surpassed the one billion stream milestone on Spotify is evidence of her popularity on a global scale and her ascent to the top of the list of Afrobeats exports.
Tems has also had some success on her own, with her track “Free Mind” spending 17 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 after debuting there two years ago.
After revealing that an album is already in the works, she would like to maintain the momentum. All indications point to the album drawing interest from her expanding global fan base.
