Download Temi DollFace's 'Just Like That (Story)'

Temi Dollface returns with the electronic-infused hip-hop jam "Just Like That (Story)."


Nigerian songstress Temi DollFace returns this week with the electronic-infused hip-hop jam "Just Like That (Story)." Temi made an impact in 2013 with the 1950s commercial-themed visuals for her debut single offering "Pata Pata," a lighthearted dance track about breaking up. Since then, the star and her signature style have crossed into the fashion realm covering magazines and performing during MTN Lagos Fashion and Design WeekTemi recently dropped her latest offering "Just Like That (Story)." the first single from the songstress' forthcoming album. She flexes her studio skills in co-producing the track with Jo Pee, cooking up something reminiscent of powerhouse duo of Timberland & Missy Elliot, as well as Destiny's Child. In "Just Like That (Story)," she raps and sings about the allurement and deception of money over their eclectic smorgasbord of snared bass and syncopated beats. Download the single below and, for more, check out our interview with Temi Dollface from last year.
