Tems performs ‘No Woman, No Cry’ at the Global Citizen Festival

This November, Tems’ version of Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry” will appear on Marvel’s soundtrack. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. A portion of her version was featured in a trailer for the film, which was revealed in July, and an EP containing the song was released shortly after. This weekend, Tems performed the song live for the first time at the Global Citizen Festival in Ghana.

Alongside a backing band, Tems is seen in a fan-shared clip singing the song with his voice nearly matching the quality of the studio recording. The crowd reflects his energy, particularly when he arrives at the bridge, chanting, as Tems repeats, “it’s going to be alright, it’s going to be alright.”

Tems has come a long way in the last five years. In an interview with GQUK, revealed that in 2017, a year before he released his debut single “Mr. Rebel”, she lived alone and struggled financially.

“There were times when I wasn’t just broke, I was broke and hopeless,” she said. “I used to steal food. I used to go to my aunt’s house just for her to give me food to take home,” she says. “I just felt, what is the point of me existing right now? You have to remember those times. Because that person no longer exists.

Over the course of the past year, he’s collaborated with some of the biggest names in music, including Drake, Future, and Beyoncé. Not to mention that she has contributed to the soundtrack of one of the most anticipated movies of the year.
