Tinie Tempah premiered today the music video for “Invincible”, the official fourth single taken from his debut album “Disc-Overy”!
I’ll go straight in and talk about the new music video…well…it’s basically Tinie ‘recapping‘ all the success he’s achieved in this very short period of time. Sold-out gigs, fan loving, #1 hits, etc, mixed with scenes of Mr Tempah at an ‘undisclosed’ location – wearing a flashy and pretty extravagant suit – singing the tune. I was hoping to see more of Kelly Rowland in the video , only caught a few glimpses of her. Quite disappointed with that aspect!
Invincible featuring Kelly Rowland – is shaping as a massive opportunity in regards of a crack at the American market in my opinion, the fact that he chose this single rather than the Ellie Goulding assisted track Wonderman only goes to prove this theory. It just goes to show how far Tinie Tempah has come this year, he is well on his way to increasing his popularity with every move he makes! Good luck to him , he deserves every bit of success going!
Tinie definitely could have another hit on his hands here!!!
RIRI IS Back!!! The single has arrived and boy is it good! It doesnt disappoint for sure! After all the tough times Rihanna has encountered in the past year you get the feeling she just wants to have some fun! With this new track its the perfect kind of track you can dance along and have a lot of fun to!
After a brief encounter with some deep dark downbeat and pretty emotional music during the Rated R era its a welcome return to some upbeat music! Some would say she’s come full circle by going back to the upbeat sounds which propelled her initally into the limelight and gave her huge success!
On the first listen of this track I was quite shocked that Stargate(producer of previous hits “Rudeboy” , “Take a Bow” etc) were the producers of the track because its not your average typical Stargate kind of production! It follows a similar theme many top artists are following these days with the euro pop style a strong focal point! Its a bit of a dancefloor smash thats for sure! I can just imagine this song blasting out in the clubs right now. Some would point to the fact that Rihanna is simply trying to copy the likes of Gaga by going for this style but Rihanna has played around with this style of music previously and most notably in the pre Gaga era. I think she’s just simply realised that this formula is working in the world of pop today like every other!
This will be certainly be a hit amonst all the top radio stations, without a doubt , i get the feeling they will be hastily arranging a new addition to all their playlists! Gotta deserve a spot on the A playlist surely? Its actually reminscent of the David Guetta produced “Commander” as it has the same sort of dance vibe to it!. “Only Girl” is a big ravey dance hall number complete with a big belter of a chorus from Ri Ri with her shouting out the the strong catchy lyric ” “Want you to make me feel like I’m the only girl in the world”! I think a lot of people will like it because quite simply its a song which is relatable and current!
You certainly cant argue with Rihanna’s ability to keep churning out these tracks! Very catchy, almost certainly destined to be another smash! “Only Girl” is the lead single from Rihanna’s upcoming studio album due out in November, which is rumored to be titled Loud. Loving it. Only Girl’ looks to return to Rihanna’s radio-dominating sound, and in a big way!
About the new album, Rihanna had this to say:
I didn’t want to go backward and remake ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’. I wanted the next step in the evolution of Rihanna.”
I’m gonna miss the ‘Rated R’ era too, but NOTHING compares to the album I just made.
Looking at the tracklisting for a debut album and you see the likes of Kelly Rowland & Ellie Goulding and of course the amazing Labrinth then you immediately get the feeling Tinie Tempah is already in the big time! He’s gathered some cracking collaborations for his upcoming album “The Disc-Overy” which is certain to be a big hit and extend his amazing year even further!
This duet will be included on the Londoner’s upcoming debut album “Disc-Overy” which hits stores on October 4th. Tinie has kept details of the album under lock and key until recently but the details are coming out now and they are exciting! In his short career Tempah has already scored two Top 3 hits in the UK with “Pass Out” and “Frisky”, and it all points out he will have another smash hit once the third single “Written In The Stars” gets released later in September.
Right then so what about the tune! I kind of like it, Kelly has been assigned to chrous duties but she does it beautifully!! I love the fact he is able to call on the likes of Kelly Rowland to sing on his songs! All in all the song is pretty good, and you never know it could get released as a future single! Who knows ey? It’d be great promo for Kelly too in the UK!
Production comes from Ishi who was responsible for Written In The Stars, and it’s definitely a similar sound. Personally I’m looking forward to Wonderman (which features Ellie Goulding) as Labrinth’s production has been really on form as of late.
Also another notable song which features on his album is a collaboration with Swedish House Mafia! It seems like Tinie Tempah is an unstoppable force in the world of pop music at the moment as he continues to deliver smash hit after smash hit. His track with Swedish House Mafia – Miami 2 Ibiza has impressed many with some claiming its out of this world. I think his success is partly due to his crossover appeal with dance music which is something that his contemporaries such as Tinchy Stryder are probably lacking a little. I like how he’s joined forces with Swedish House Mafia who are still riding on the crest of a wave from their latest release One which features Pharrell Williams.Very smart move from Tinie! The track is released October 10th which means in theory Tinie could top the charts 3 weeks in a row! Impressive!
Is the Debut album from No.1 rapper to be released 4th October.
3rd Single, “Written in the Stars”, will be released on 27th September
On the 4th October, the undisputed breakout star of 2010, Tinie Tempah will release his highly anticipated debut album, Disc-Overy
Recorded over the last 11 months in North London, South London and Sweden, the album is a highly accomplished piece of work featuring an array of production that encompasses gritty grime, tempo-shifting drum and bass, and dark and brooding pop.
Already renowned for his daring musical choices, Pass Out is the single that not only put Tinie on the map, but also altered the path of UK urban music in 2010. Disc-Overy continues this adventurous attitude. “If you’ve heard Pass Out and Frisky and think you know what to expect, you’re wrong,” Tinie points out of the assorted array of production.
Simply Unstoppable underscores Tinie’s grime roots, Swedish House Mafia have created an undeniable dancefloor anthem in the form of Miami 2 Ibiza, while Naughty Boy delivers a deliciously brooding pop number Let Go, featuring Emile Sande. One of Tinie’s personal favourites, the laidback Snap talks about chronicling life photographically, including “My mum and dad’s wedding picture, which is my favourite photo in the world”, while Wonderman features Ellie Goulding and is produced by Labrinth. “I wanted this album to be really raw, not only in terms of the production but the guests. I was only interested in working with people I really respect and who I’m a fan of. I met Ellie very early on, we swapped numbers and after that we started living very parallel worlds; the same festivals, interviews and so on. It made total sense to have her on the album.”
Tinie looks set for yet another smash with his forthcoming third single, Written In The Stars. Produced by Swedish powerhouse Ishi, the single is a euphoric feel good anthem that details the 21 year-old’s past, present and future ambitions. Featuring the incredible vocals of Boston newcomer Eric Turner, the epic, synth-led single features crisp drums, razor-sharp guitars and a considered message delivered in Tinie’s uniquely credible style. “I used to be the kid that no-one cared about, that’s why you have to keep screaming ’till they hear you out,” raps Tinie.
The diverse and imaginative album features collaborations with Ellie Goulding, Kelly Rowland and Emile Sande with production from Labrinth (Pass Out, Frisky), newcomer Ishi, Al Shux (Jay-Z’s Empire State Of Mind) and Naughty Boy (Chipmunk, Wiley), as well as renowned dance producers Swedish House Mafia.
In addition to highlighting the finer things in life that success can offer, Tinie details the lows of fame and fortune, as well as offering a candid insight into his childhood growing up in South London.
“On every single song you’ll get a line that reveals what life was like for me. I recorded a lot of it after Pass Out went to No.1, so that gave me a chance to reflect on life before and after achieving success,” says Tinie. “Going to No.1 gave me a chance to consider how far I’ve come, but also how far I intend to go.”
Album tracklisting as follows:
- Simply Unstoppable
- Pass Out
- Just A Little (featuring Range)
- Written In The Stars (featuring Eric Turner)
- Frisky (featuring Labrinth)
- Miami 2 Ibiza – Swedish House Mafia vs Tinie Tempah

Tinie Tempah has had an incredible year. Few debut artists boast two massive hit singles and captivate music fans, celebrities and critics alike in just a matter of months. With Pass Out being the standout track of the summer, Tinie has played every significant stage from Wireless and the Big Chill, to Glastonbury, Ibiza Rocks and Radio 1’s Big Weekend. In May, Damon Albarn invited Tinie to join him on Jonathan Ross to perform with Gorillaz, while in June Snoop Dogg, who did a remix of Pass Out, asked Tinie to join him on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury. He’s won celebrity fans in the form of Prince William and P. Diddy – who enlisted Tinie for the remix of his latest single Hello, Good Morning – while Paris Hilton booked the rapper for a private party in Cannes. Having toured with Jay-Z, Chase & Status, Rihanna and Mr. Hudson, Tinie recently announced his own headline tour, which opens in October. MASSIVE YEAR! And its only going to get bigger and better.

The very lovely Kelly Rowland stopped by the Graham Norton show recently for a chat and to perform her new David Guetta produced single ‘Commander’.
Check out the performance below : What do you think?
I never really had high expectations for Kelly Rowland’s comeback, but i was really impressed by the Commander track.
I thought this change in style for Kelly would bring about a greater level of success for her so i was disappointed to see that the video didnt really live up to the expectations of the track. I thought it would be much better. Kelly premiered the video earlier today and goes all futuristic for the Masashi Muto-directed clip. It features cameo appearances from the song’s creators, producer David Guetta and songwriter Rico Love and sees Kelly having a face-off with her alter ego. The track is the 29-year-old’s first international single from her upcoming new album which currently has a very tentative release date of September 14th. Check it out below:
The video is a nice video , dont get me wrong , its not at all poor , but when you see the song title , and then watch the video , it doesnt live up to expectations, i really think she should have gone all out on the choreography etc to “COMMAND” the attention of viewers of the video and make it a success. But i still LOVE the track none the lesss.
UPDATED : The video has already been taken down from You Tube… Rumours are that the video was leaked early when it wasnt actually completed. Apparantely the official video premiere will be tomorrow with all aspects of the video completed. So You will have wait for tomorrow to see the finished article! :)
Kelly Rowland really is trying to keep her urban fanbase happy with the release of her official Urban remix for International single ‘Commander’. Kelly even gets the help of Nelly who featured on hit single “Dilemma” to join in some verses on the Rico Love/David Guetta produced track.
The music video for the original dance-pop version will reportedly premiere on June 2nd. Take a listen to the remix below:
Kelly Rowland has teamed up with hit producer David Guetta to create another amazing summer tune.
The song titled Commander is a very upbeat dance track which is sure to be a hit all over the clubs this summer.
Ms. Rowland has been signed up to Universal Motown after leaving Universal Music Entertainment/Columbia Records last year. Shes due to release her third solo album later this year and i for one cant wait to hear more of her amazing music.
