Fast rising global artist, Temilade Opaniyi, aka Tems, has made her first number one solo spot on America’s Billboard a week after the Nigerian songstress made her solo debut at number 90 with her 2020 single, ‘Free Mind,’ on the sought-after music chart.
The singer debuted at number one on the Billboard World Digital Song Sales Chart with her version of ‘No Woman No Cry’ rendered for the sequel of the ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ movie. Jamaican music legend Bob Marley sang the original version of the song.
She brought back the effect of the ever-green song, ‘No Woman No Cry,’ with her sonorous voice that relished the tear-jerking lyrical content and her resonant delivery that gave goosebumps.
Tems’ ‘No Woman No Cry’ version is from a new extended play (EP) by Marvel Studios ‘Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever.’ The new EP released Monday, July 25, has two other songs, ‘A Body, A Coffin’ by more and ‘Soy’ by Santa Fe Klan.
