Born in the Wild features the singles "Me & U" and "Love Me JeJe," along with 16 other songs, including "Get it Right" featuring Asake" and "Free Fall" featuring J. Cole.

In a video on Instagram, Tems reflected on her process and the making of Born in the Wild.

"I definitely didn't know the shape that this album would take during this journey," the star says. "Most of my songs were coming from a place of not having freedom or not finding peace. Now I really feel like I have peace in my life.

"One thing I'm grateful for is the people around me," she adds. "My team, the group of producers that supports me, encourage me to keep learning. Never did I think I would experience that kind of support."
