Tems has mapped out her Born in the Wild World Tour in support of her upcoming, much-anticipated debut album.

In addition to the tour dates — her first world tour — the Nigerian singer also revealed her Born in the Wild cover art as well as cemented a June 7 release date; the LP was originally expected out in May, but will now land a few weeks later.

Tems will kick off the world tour in Europe in June before the trek arrives in North America starting August 22 in Miami. She’ll then circle the U.S. (with a trio of Canadian dates sprinkled in) before the North American leg closes on October 1 in Los Angeles. From there, she’ll cross the Pacific for three shows in Australia.

Born in the Wild will arrive six years after Tems bowed with her debut single, 2018’s “Mr Rebel.” In the years since, she’s enjoyed a remarkable rise with hits of her own, including 2020’s “Damages” and 2022’s “Free Mind,” as well as her star-making feature on Wizkid’s 2021 smash, “Essence,” and appearance on 2022’s “Wait for U” with Future and Drake and a co-write on Rihanna’s “Lift Me Up,” plus her own EPs For Broken Ears and If Orange Was a Place. Last year, Tems released a pair of new singles, “Me & U” and “Not an Angel.”

Earlier this month, Tems shared the latest single of Born in the Wild, “Love Me Jeje.” Although the album is a month away from release, Tems has still not shared the complete track list.
