New Tinie Tempah Video Out Saturday, Debut U.S. Album Out In March
THIS IS GONNA BE EPIC! Tinie Tempah's NEXT single has been announced as the Ellie Goulding-assisted "Wonderman." According to Electroqueer, the single has a March 7th release date in the UK but the video is premiering this Saturday, January 22nd. "Wonderman" will be the fifth single lifted off of Tempah's debut album, Disc-Overy (DL Records Ltd./Parlophone), succeeding "Invincible" which features frequent David Guetta-collaborator Kelly Rowland (of Destiny's Child fame). I wasn't such a fan of Rowland's contribution to the album but add Ellie Goulding to a track and you have be HOOKED!
Tempah has really blew up in his native UK last year! Two #1 singles ("Pass Out" & "Written In The Stars" with Eric Turner)? Two Top Five singles? ("Frisky" with Labrinth & "Miami 2 Ibiza" with Swedish House Mafia), oh and not to mention Disc-Overy went Platinum in the UK, with over 300,000 albums sold. DAMN! Quite the year.
While, to date, "Invincible" has been Tempah's lowest charting single, peaking at #11, I don't think he has anything to worry about. Success seems to be following Tinie Tempah internationally, where single #3 "Written In The Stars" was certified Gold in both Australia AND New Zealand. American fans, don't feel left out! Tinie Tempah's Disc-Overy album is set to make it's stateside debut on March 22nd via Capitol Records. While we're all waiting, be sure to check out this fierce little trailer for the forthcoming "Wonderman" video. I bet the remixes for this one are gonna be off the hook! The single hasn't even officially been released yet and it's already charting on the Official UK Singles Chart at #45. I'll be back with more on the video this weekend after it premieres on Saturday. In the meantime, feast your eyes on the FANTASTIC Star Wars (?)-inspired artwork (above) and the trailer (below). Can't wait for "Wonderman!"
