Hot Video Alert: Tinie Tempah feat. Ellie Goulding - Wonderman
Inspired by 70s American TV series The Six Million Dollar Man, the video for Tinie Tempah's new single "Wonderman," features Tinie in the title role. After being injured in space, Tempah is outfitted with bionic parts including an arm, leg, eye, ear not to mention super human spped and strength. Together, these new parts turn Tinie Tempah into an unstoppable force of good. A hero if you will. British singer/songwriter Ellie Goulding portrays a scientist assigned to oversee Tinie's transformation and progress throughout. While Goulding claims to have done her own stunts for the video, those scenes appear to have been cut from the final video as Goulding is only seen watching Tinie through a glass window or standing over him taking notes. No matter, the video is chock-full of death defying stunts, awesome special effects and two of my favorite British artists. All in all, a very solid video.
"Wonderman" will be released in the UK on March 6th via Parlophone Records. The Labrinth-produced single entered the UK Singles Chart at #45 - the week after Tinie's debut album, Disc-Overy came out. Here's hoping that, come March, the single has a nice, impressive debut on the charts. It definitely deserves it! If you're in the UK you can check out the video below (U.S. fans try HERE). Make sure you also check out Tinie and Ellie performing the song live last Thursday at the Brit Awards 2011 Launch Party. Wow Ellie! Quite the impressive drum solo. Maybe they'll both do the song live again at Coachella?
