Nigerian international singing sensation Tems has scored her first solo entry on America’s Billboard chart with 2020 song ‘Free Mind’.
‘Free Mind’ was released in 2020 as part of her EP ‘For Broken Ears’ and has debuted at #90 in the latest issue of Billboard Hot 100 and it’s her first solo entry on the charts.
With the debut of ‘Free Mind’ on the Billboard Hot 100, Tems has become the second Nigerian artist to have four entries on the much hallowed Billboard Hot 100. She got her previous entries from guest appearances in Drake‘s ‘Fountain’, Wizkid‘s ‘Essence’, and Future‘s number one single ‘Wait For U’.
Tems is now tied with Wizkid who was the sole record holder with Drake’s smash global hit ‘One Dance’, Beyonce’s ‘Black Skin Girl’, Chris Brown’s ‘Call Me Everyday’, and hit single ‘Essence’.
Tems is the second Nigerian artisting making their solo debut on the Hot 100 charts, in as many weeks after superstar Burna Boy also scored a solo debut on last week’s chart with hit ‘LastLast’ at #86.
