The chart-topping song “Free Mind” by Temilade Openiyi, known as Tems, made its debut on the Hot 100.

This week, the song debuted at number 90 on the top American chart as one of the new additions.

Charts announcing the news on their verified Twitter account wrote;

Though Tems has previously charted on Hot 100 with ‘Essence’ alongside , ‘Fountain’ with Drake, and Future’s ‘ For ’ which debuted top of the chart, ‘Free Mind’ is her first entry as a lead artist.

Free Mind’ was released off Tems’ 2020 EP ‘For Broken Ears’.


Previously, “Free Mind” peaked at number one on the US Afrobeats Songs chart on 21 June 2022.

This good news comes days after the singer bagged another major bragging right by landing a feature on the soundtrack of Marvel Studios movie “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”

Marvel Studios released the first teaser to the long-awaited and highly anticipated movie on Sunday, and Tems performed a rendition of “No Woman No Cry” by the late reggae legend, Bob Marley.

Her manager, Muyiwa Awoniyi, confirmed that Tems was featured on the soundtrack on Twitter.

Grateful to the amazing people at @MarvelStudios. BIG LOVE to the legend Ryan Coogler.
It’s @temsbaby on the official Black panther 2 trailer. My father in heaven. Thank you once again

Rest in peace @chadwickboseman”
