Tinie Tempah is a hard working man! The rapper, who leads the award ceremony with 4 nominations at this year’s Brits, is gearing up for full on promotion of his first US single, the #1 UK single “Pass Out.” This promotion includes an already confirmed appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, not a bad start! After “Pass Out” the US will receive his other UK #1 “Written In The Stars” which features Eric Turner. I like that Tinie is releasing “Pass Out” (which does not have a feature) so then his success will be truly determined on his own, and not the featured artist. Not that Eric Turner has a ton of swagger in the US, but people may find his part catchy versus Tinie’s actual rapping. This could be a big indicator of his success in America.
In the UK, Tinie is riding high with the success of current single “Invincible” which features Kelly Rowland, and is getting ready to release his 5th single “Wonderman” featuring Ellie Goulding. I’ve included the pretty cool cover art at the top of this post which looks just like a movie poster which is just how the music video is shaping up to be! Tinie & Ellie put on their best acting faces for the upcoming “Wonderman” video which could turn out hilariously cheesy or actually pretty cool–and based on their talent & how pretty Ellie looks, I’m going with the latter.
Check out the music video’s trailer after the cut and the single cover at the top. What do you think of everything Tinie-related? Is he going to break the US?! I’m not 100% sure he can…we’ll have to see!
