Riding the momentum of an impressive interlude on Drake’s Certified Lover Boy, Tems has come through to deliver her new EP If Orange Was A Place. Though short enough to be enjoyed in one cohesive sitting, “Replay” feels like an early standout, an uptempo melodic vibe that highlights her confident vocal presence and playful, intimate lyricism.
“Even on days, when they tried to arrest me, but if you live a lie, there’s no way you could get me,” she sings, her vocals blending beautifully with the lush production — even more so when she slides effortlessly into a lovely falsetto. “Pissed em off, they locked up in a celly / Then shock dem when they see me on the telly.” It’s certainly worth checking out, and if you like what you’re hearing, be sure to show Tems some love by checking out her brand new EP right here.
Even on days, when they tried to arrest me,
But if you live a lie, there’s no way you could get me
Pissed em off, they locked up in a celly
Then shock dem when they see me on the telly
