Tems made history with her fifth entry on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with Beyonce‘s song ‘Move’ debuting at number 55 on the chart dated August 13th, 2022.

Appearing on the album of a global powerhouse with Beyonce is a landmark moment for Tems who is already enjoying a great run after debuting at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 with her contributions on Future’s “Wait For U”.

She also became the first African woman to win a BET Award when she won the Best New Act at the 2022 BET Awards.

Her contributions to the album came in ‘Move‘ where she appeared alongside Grace Jones.

‘Move becomes her fifth entry after her guest appearances on Wizkid‘s ‘Essence’ which peaked at number 9, Drake’s ‘Fountain’, and Future’s ‘Wait For U’ which debuted at number 1. She also scored her first solo entry recently with her 2020 single ‘Free Mind’ debuting at number 90.

Tems have now broken her four-entry tie with Afrobeats heavyweight Wizkid with whom she previously held the record for most Billboard Hot 100 entry by a Nigerian artist.

Tems has won BET Award for Best International Act in 2022, BET Award for Best Collaboration 2022 among others.
