Tems to Get ‘Breakthrough Award’ at Billboard ‘Women in Music’ 2024

Tems, the Grammy-winning vocalist, will get the ‘breakthrough award’ at the 2024 edition of Billboard’s ‘Women in Music’ event.

The Billboard ‘Women in Music’ Awards are an annual event that recognizes prominent female artists, producers, and executives who have made significant contributions to the music industry and community.

The 2024 ceremony is set for March 6 at the YouTube Theatre in Hollywood Park, Inglewood, California.

Tracee Ellis Ross will host the event, which will be webcast live on March 7.

Billboard recently announced the winners, including the ‘Woman of the Year’ award.

Tems was named as the recipient of the ‘breakthrough award’.

Other categories include ‘powerhouse’, ‘hitmaker’, ‘icon’, ‘global force’, ‘visionary’, ‘group of the year’, and ‘impact award’.

“The Nigerian singer-songwriter and record producer is nominated for a Grammy as a co-writer of Rhianna’s smash “Lift Me Up” from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The smash, which entered the Hot 100 at No. 2 in late 2022, is nominated for best song written for visual media. A year ago, it brought Tems and her co-writers an Oscar nod for best original song,” Billboard wrote about Tems.

“Tems won a Grammy last year – best melodic rap performance for Future’s “Wait for U,” on which she was featured (along with Drake). That song topped the Hot 100 in 2022. Tems landed her first top 10 hit as a featured artist on Wizkid’s “Essence” in 2021. Justin Bieber was also featured on that smash.”

Born Temilade Openiyi, Tems has established herself as a prominent figure in the Nigerian music industry, earning several awards and accolades.

In September, Tems was honoured by TIME magazine and listed among their top 100 for 2023.
