The record was reportedly supposed to be on Tems' debut album.

Without releasing an album, Nigerian singer-songwriter Tems has undoubtedly proven that she’s a hitmaking machine. WizKid’s “Essence” opened the floodgates for her reign, eventually leading to a remix with Justin Bieber. However, her appearance on Drake’s Certified Lover Boy and the sample of her voice on Future’s hit record, “Wait For U” has led to an incredible amount of anticipation for what she has in store moving forward. At this point, she’s shaping up to be a superstar in her own right.

Unfortunately, fans have been waiting eagerly for her debut studio album, which has yet to see the light of day. However, a record from the project recently emerged online featuring an appearance from Drake. Over the weekend, a record titled “Only Me” surfaced online. The record was reportedly slated to appear on her debut album, which was initially due out in 2022. Hopefully, the leak doesn’t ruin any chances of the record seeing an official release in the near future.

There’s still no word on when fans could expect Tems’ forthcoming album to drop. The Nigerian star continues to ride off of the strength of her EPs,  For Broken Ears and If I Was An Orange. The former included the record “Higher,” which Future and Drake later sampled on “Wait For U.” Ultimately, this helped Tems secure the first Grammy of her career for Best Melodic Rap Performance. With the summer right around the corner, we hope that she has plans to release a new project soon, whether it’s her debut album or another EP. 

It’s unclear what’s happening at Drake’s studio but there have been a number of records that have emerged online in recent weeks. Collaborations alongside Lil Wayne (“Startrax”) and PartyNextDoor (“Bricks”) circulated recently, as well as a song called “Against The Wind,” which Drake seemingly repurposed for “The Remorse.” Additionally, his reference track for Beyoncé’s “Heated” also leaked. Overall, fans have been treated to an influx of music from the Boy this year. Besides the leaks, he debuted “Search & Rescue” and the Lil Uzi Vert-assisted, “At The Gates.” We can’t share Tems’ “Only Me” ft. Drake but it shouldn’t be hard to find online.
