The Leading Vibe (Tems) releases the If Orange Was A Place EP, Today September 15, 2021, Just as promised. After a year filled with highlightsâincluding a critically acclaimed debut EP, 2020âs ‘For Broken Ears’, and hit collaborations with Wizkid, Justin Bieber (âEssenceâ) and Drake (âFountainsâ)- Nigerian alté R&B singer-songwriter Tems leans into a newfound sense of creative freedom on her sophomore EP.

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

Her Sophomore EP- If Orange Was A Place consist of 5 tracks and one guest act; Brent Faiyaz. All tracks produced by Guilty Beatz except track 3, which was produced by Jonah Christian.


Through its five tracks, If Orange Was a Place creates ample space for Temsâ distinctive voice to shine as she navigates through themes of finding inner peace and staying true to self. âOrange is a vibe,â she explains. âIt 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&Bâone 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.

Track 1. âCrazy Tingsâ

âThis 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



Track 2. âFoundâ (feat. Brent Faiyaz)

âI 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



Track 3. âReplayâ

âThis 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. Itâs me reiterating who I am. The song was produced by Jonah Christian



Track 4. âAvoid Thingsâ

âI am someone who doesnât like unnecessary disputes that lead nowhere, and âAvoid Thingsâ is about my [desire] to provide solutions, but being met with resistance, madness and crazy things



Track 5. âVibe Outâ

ââVibe Outâ is the setting of the sun and getting prepared to move. It is what I call the âgingerâ and the burst of danceâ¦the sunset dance
