Tems Announces ‘Love Me Jeje’ Single After Debuting It at Coachella

Tems announced her new single “Love Me Jeje” on Monday (April 22), and it’s arriving sooner than you think.

“Love Me Jeje” will be available Friday, April 26. She performed it for the first time during weekend one of Coachella, where she coached the crowd through the “Love me jeje, love me tender” chorus.

Nigerian singer-songwriter Seyi Sodimu — who released his hit “Love Me Jeje” featuring Shafy Bello in 1997 — shared a video of Tems performing her song at Coachella on Instagram last week. “This made my day. The beautiful thing about music is that it transcends generations and connects us through time. Shoutout to Tems and her team, and congrats on a wonderful Coachella performance,” he wrote.

During her weekend one Coachella set, Tems had another surprise up her sleeve: She brought out Wizkid and Justin Bieber to perform their Billboard Hot 100 No. 9 smash “Essence.”


“Love Me Jeje” is the first single to be released after the Nigerian singer-songwriter-producer announced her debut album, Born in the World, would arrive in May. She released two singles at the end of last year, “Me & U” and “Not an Angel,” which both reached No. 3 on Billboard‘s U.S. Afrobeats Songs chart. She performed “Not an Angel” for the first time at Billboard Women in Music in March. Tems also received the Breakthrough Award from Savannah James.

“One thing that’s uniquely special to me is that I’m in a room full of amazing women and I’m standing with a continent behind me, I’m standing with the people behind me, and it makes me feel like I’m part of something just being in this room,” Tems said in her speech.
