Rapper Fat Joe Of America Cites Tems’ “Free Mind” As The “Song Of The Year”

The smash song “Free Mind” by Tems has been dubbed the year’s greatest tune by Fat Joe. The Bronx native went on Instagram Live this past weekend to discuss a few other subjects, but he started the video by chanting the song’s praises while it played in the background.

The Terror Squad leader lauds the Nigerian crooner’s historic solo release, calling it “the biggest in the game.” “I played this because, to me, this is the song of the year.” The 52-year-old danced along to the music and added, “Song of the Year to me, I don’t know about you,” further establishing “Free Mind” as the undisputed hit of 2022.

The song “Free Mind” was first made available in September 2020 as a part of Tems’ debut EP, For Broken Ears, but it received more attention after she guested on Wizkid’s massive hit “Essence.” The song gained Gold certification from the RIAA and peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart. It also reached No. 46 on the Billboard 100. Not just Fat Joe has praised Tems in the past. Following the release of “Lift Me Up,” the lead track from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Tems received praise from Rihanna for her songwriting abilities.
