Tinie Tempah, UK Rap Superstar's First US Single 'Written In The Stars' Goes Platinum!

Tinie Tempah, UK Rap Superstar's First US Single 'Written In The Stars' Goes Platinum!

Miami, FL (Top40 Charts/ Capitol Records) London-born rapper Tinie Tempah, already a double BRIT Award-winning U.K. superstar with 2010's top-selling debut album by a British artist, goes platinum in the U.S. this week with his first stateside single, "Written In The Stars" exceeding sales of over one million.

With his shiny new platinum status, Tinie is experiencing an undeniable major breakthrough in America, where his infectious, message-driven single "Written in the Stars" from his debut album, Disc-Overy was recently hailed by Entertainment Weekly as one of the "next big hits of 2011." The song is currently Top 10 on the Top 40 chart and number 15 and climbing on Billboard's Hot 100, making him the highest ranking new artist in the Top 10 at Top 40 radio with his platinum selling single. As the first British rapper to achieve platinum status with their debut U.S. single, it is clear that Tinie Tempah is well on his way to achieving major stardom in the U.S.

Disc-Overy was released yesterday to American listeners with the addition of three all-new tracks recorded in the U.S. earlier this year with producers Stargate (Wiz Khalifa, Beyonce, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Ne-Yo) and Boi 1Da (Eminem, Drake). One of the new songs, "Till I'm Gone," featuring Wiz Khalifa and produced by Stargate, will be Disc-Overy's next U.S. single. "Til I'm Gone" features a gripping chorus and riveting verbal interplay between Tinie and Wiz that exemplifies the tenacious attitude that's endeared Tinie to his fans. Stargate also produced "Love Suicide," featuring special guest Esther Dean. The third new track, "So Addicted," was produced by Boi 1Da and features Bei Maejor.

The charismatic 22-year-old is already a phenomenon in the U.K., where Disc-Overy debuted at number one and produced four Top Five singles, including two number ones, and is currently double platinum.
