MUSIC : TEMS – IF ORANGE WAS A PLACE [EP DOWNLOAD]

Tems comes again with another phase of EP tagged “If Orange Was A Place” after her first debut EP “For broken ears.

Tems assumption of if Orange was a place can be seen as a reflection of her thought and projects.

I have learnt to let go and just live life and just do what comes naturally to me,” she tells Apple Music. “It has helped me find a new freedom of expression and a new vibe that isn’t based on past experiences but present moments.”

She had just released ‘These Days,’ ‘Damages’ and her debut EP, For Broken Ears when she delivered a monstrous performance on Wizkid’s Made In Lagos. ‘Essence’ has since become a song of summer that might get multiple Grammy nominations. She has since worked with Justin Bieber, featured on Drake’s Certified Lover Boy track, ‘Fountains’ and gotten Adele to wax lyrical about her talent.

She has also started to show more sexuality, to diversify her appeal. She’s a beautiful woman, and it’s starting to get more amplified – that’s branding. But what she could represent – music and brand-wise, over the next three years – is probably still a huge conundrum. She’s not white, so she doesn’t have the luxury of tweaking her brand with every album like Billie Eilish.

IF ORANGE WAS A PLACE makes a ton of sense. More than the idea of creating a new stream of Tems’ consciousness in the minds of new fans, it’s also a needed experiment. Four records on the EP are produced by GuiltyBeatz while the other is produced by Jonah Christian. This is a deft blend of R&B and African pop music essence.

The placement of an R&B song like ‘Found’ featuring Brent Faiyaz, shows that the label understands that there is a chance for Tems to be an R&B princess. Instead of shutting it all out for Afro-pop infused music, they have gone for a mid-level, yet super-talented male R&B singer to open some R&B horizons for Tems.

Ordinarily, Tems would have needed a more extended artist development cycle with a few more underground releases. But in line with taking advantage of her current buzz – without taking advantage of it, they have released an experimental EP – instead of an album.

On a good day, now would have been the perfect time to drop a Tems debut album. But the label probably knows that Tems isn’t just a Nigerian artist anymore. To take advantage of that potential, she needs a foot on each terrain because she would need more than two Billboard hits as a featured artist to have a sustained career. She would need an identity that fans in the US can recognize her for.

The tendency to try out new things in order to have a denser brand, is apparent in the ‘Nigerianism’ of ‘Crazy Things,’ on which Tems extensively sings in Pidgin and pronounced ‘happening’ as ‘appuning.’ It’s probably from the understanding that language of delivery will determine the level of an artist’s success in Nigeria.

It also reflects in the R&B-infused type of Afro-Fusion, which is heavy on Afro-pop percussion, but with slower BPMs, which forms the essence of ‘IF ORANGE WAS A PLACE.’

This way, she could take advantage of the rising tide of Afro-pop in the US, while retaining her R&B essence.

Yet in the infancy of her career, where most people – including her and RCA – don’t know what she might be; and where she probably doesn’t even fully grasp the full concept of her being, she has three Billboard Hot 100 hits in under two months.

Through its five tracks, If Orange Was a Place creates ample space for Tems’ distinctive voice to shine as she navigates through themes of finding inner peace and staying true to self. “Orange is a vibe,” she explains. “It is the feeling of sunset and the sweetness of an orange. And when I think of those songs, I am transported to a different place where everything is warm and sweet.”

Lyrically and sonically, Tems (Temilade Openiyi) represents an alté sound driving a new wave of African R&B—one centred on mood, expression and originality, and one less concerned with trying to sound too familiar.

Below, Tems shares a snapshot of the “If Orange Was A Place EP“, track by track.

This song was inspired by the crazy amazing things that have been going on in my life, and it was made in Ghana. The beat was played to me by GuiltyBeatz and I was surrounded by orange light and alcohol. The vibes just flowed in afterwards.”

QUOTABLE LYRICS

All you do is lie and lie and lie
All you do is try and try and try
You don’t even know the kind of things
But you try to tell me all these things

Give me some time, I need peace
I’ma need space some days
And I’m just tryna do my thing
And I’m just tryna get my way

So you need someone to deceive
And you’re trying to think that I’m the one for you
But don’t you see? You’re not everything
And I know you’re not the one for me

Crazy tings are happening
Crazy tings are happening
If you need somebody’s craze
You fit chop somebody’s craze

I was in LA with Brent; he is such an amazing artist. He always knows how to bring a different perspective. The song is really about releasing different thoughts in my head and reconciling them with my truth.”

People always try to get involved
I feel like I’m done, don’t know where to run
People always trying to take a bite out of my mind
If you need a fight, maybe we could start
I feel I might just be coming undone
Tell me why you can’t be found?
It’s so unreasonable, I know you
Love is a difficult life
Maybe we should take it to the streets

[Pre-Chorus: Tems]
Basically, I might not be weak
Basically, I might not be falling
Basically, I might be used to this

[Chorus: Tems]
Ooh, I found myself, found myself, found
Ooh, I found myself, found myself, found
Oh, oh-oh, oh

This song was just my rebel side coming out. Again, this was just me expressing my thoughts on opinions and all types of energies I encounter. It’s me reiterating who I am. The song was produced by Jonah Christian.”

Keep the same vibe, you can’t ruin in my day
Oh, my voice is a mystery
Ride the wave of my history
I’ve been distant to keep my distance
Goodbye to a boring life
I like to seek but I’m never in sight
Even though I’m the type to ride
I like to care but e never reach fight
Swinging my waist like you never did see
And then I roll like I really get baked
And you can’t believe what you heard me about me
It’s the magic for me
They keep trying to reach me, yeah, yeah
It’s the magic for me
I make them weep ’til they run insane
So get me lit on a weekday
I’m on the way and my ways on a display
And I’ma shut ’em all down one of these days
It’s my time so put it on a replay

I am someone who doesn’t like unnecessary disputes that lead nowhere, and ‘Avoid Things’ is about my [desire] to provide solutions, but being met with resistance, madness and crazy things.”

MUSIC : LOJAY – MONALISA ft. SARZ [Mp3 Download]

Lojay’s Monalisa track seems to an outrageous tune as it was able to hit the wave amidst buzzing sounds in town you don’t just know how the melodious finds it’s way to your head and sticks there

Speaking on the ‘LV N ATTN’ EP, Lojay said:

We created a unique sound with the EP taking inspiration from sounds around the globe. It’s like nothing anyone has ever heard before. It’s a genuine representation of where I was at the time I was making it – going through heartbreak and experiencing a wide range of different emotions. Working with Sarz gave me the opportunity to channel these feelings though my music. I hope the world enjoys LV N ATTN as much as I enjoyed making it.”

Showcasing Lojay’s sublime vocals alongside Sarz’s slick production which blends contemporary Afrobeats with urgent Hip-Hop and sensual R&B sounds – and has established him as the go-to producer for heavyweight acts in Nigeria and across the globe such as Wizkid, Burna Boy, Skepta, Drake and Beyoncé) – the ‘LV N ATTN’ EP is set to be the essential soundtrack for the summer, filled with huge jams that will no doubt be on heavy rotation on radio stations and speakers everywhere across the globe.

Sarz said:

Sonically this EP is refreshing and brings a unique twist to the afro scene. We both had creative freedom making the EP and we hope you love it as much as we did creating it.”

With a musical style largely indicative of his Yoruba roots, Lojay’s previous releases included ‘Ariel’ in 2019 and 2020’s ‘Ogogoro’. The upcoming EP was borne out of Lojay’s determination to persevere through his own dark times during the start of the pandemic last year. Already a huge Sarz fan, after some reflection he decided to reach out for an introduction which led to a face to face meeting between the two acts. Despite Lojay hoping to collaborate on one song, Sarz decided that they would work on an EP together and a 3 month-long boot-camp in Lagos ensued. Helmed by the explosive singles ‘Tonongo’ and ‘LV N ATTN’, the new EP is a reflection on heartbreak and vulnerability, with a sonic journey that will not only make you get up and move but will redefine the parameters of Afro-Fusion sounds and aesthetics.
