Rebel Gang music queen, Tems is out with a classical music cover to the song ‘Ordinary People‘ originally owned by John Legend.

It wasn’t until 2020 that Nigerian singer and MC Tems first heard about Juneteenth. “I’m sure it has always been a huge moment, but living in Nigeria, I felt like there was an added awareness last year with all the things that went on in the world,” she says.

“Freedom is important both as individuals and also as a people; learning there was a day that marked the freedom of Black people in the US shows how far we’ve come and also points to the work still to be done.”

For Apple Music’s Juneteenth-inspired Freedom Songs, a collection of covers and originals, Tems covered John Legend’s “Ordinary People,” a song that she says “speaks to me through its simplicity yet also its potency. The message cuts really clear because of it.”

Tems Ordinary People Lyrics

Boy, I’m in love with you
This ain’t the honeymoon
Passed the infatuation phase
Tight in the thick of love
At times we get sick of love
Seems like we argue every day
I know I misbehaved
And you made your mistakes
We both still got room left to grow
And though love sometimes hurts
I still put you first
And we’ll make this thing work
But I think we should take it slow

We’re just ordinary people
We don’t know which way to go
‘Cause we’re ordinary people
Maybe we should take it slow
Take it slow, oh-oh, this time we’ll take it slow
Take it slow, oh-oh, this time we’ll take it slow

This ain’t a movie, no
No fairytale conclusions
It gets more confusing every day, oh
Sometimes it’s Heaven sent
Then we head back to Hell again
We kiss, then we make up on the way
I hang up and you call
We rise and we fall
And we feel like just walking away
As our love advances
We take second chances
Though it’s not a fantasy
I still want you

We’re just ordinary people
We don’t know which way to go
‘Cause we’re ordinary people
Maybe we should take it slow
Take it slow, oh-oh, this time we’ll take it slow
Take it slow, oh-oh, yeah, this time we’ll take it slow
Take it slow

Maybe we’ll live and learn
Maybe we’ll crash and burn
Maybe you’ll stay
Maybe you’ll leave
Maybe you’ll return
Maybe another fight
Maybe we won’t survive
Maybe we’ll grow
We’ll never know
Baby, you and I

We’re just ordinary people
We don’t know which way to go
‘Cause we’re ordinary people, mmm
Maybe we should take it slow
Take it slow, oh-oh, this time we’ll take it slow
Take it slow, oh-oh, this time we’ll take it slow
We’re just ordinary people
We don’t know which way to go, yeah
‘Cause we’re ordinary people
Maybe we should take it slow
Take it slow, oh-oh, this time we’ll take it slow
Take it slow, oh-oh, this time we’ll take it slow
