‘I Could Have Done Better On Essence With Wizkid’ – Tems

Soulful Nigerian singer, Temilade Openiyi  better known as Tems, says she could have done better on ‘Essence’, her joint track with Wizkid.

Tems spoke about the song during her feature on Apple Music’s ‘The Dotty Show’, She said: “Even the day I recorded that I was still like, ‘I can do better. I think I can do better. Send me the beat and then let me do it again’. And they were like, ‘no, this is great’. And I was like, ‘yeah, but I want to add some more’.”

“I was still even trying to top it and they didn’t let me. I was happy with it. I always like to challenge myself. “I used to be such a perfectionist. I was like, ‘no, I can do much better’. But I just gave up and I was like, ‘you know what? This is fine’. But yeah, I had no clue. Wiz was like, “No, this is mad.” And I was like, ‘I mean, okay. Cool’.

Asked about a viral video of Kylie Jenner, US media personality, singing along to ‘Essence’, Tems said she had also started hearing the song being played in places she least expected.

“That was good. When I was in Los Angeles, I was hearing the song in the most random places. I did not even know that people there knew the song.  It was quite an experience”, she said.
