London-born rapper and a self-styled ‘Wonderman’ Tinie Tempah has been making far-from-tiny waves on the US music scene with debut album ‘Disco-Overy’, also winning out by a mile in the ‘Best International Act’ category at this year’s BET Awards. Having crossed paths with BET’s reigning ‘Best New Artist’ Wiz Khalifa, the dynamic duo have just debuted the new video for Tinie’s new track ‘Till I’m Gone’.
Not pausing long to mourn the demise of a relationship, Tinie feels the pull of international stardom and circles the globe in pursuit of success, hitting a career pinnacle when he bumps into The Brothers Good Charlotte, aka Joel and Benji Madden, outside an LA club.
Wiz makes an ideal collaborative foil to Tinie’s swaggersome ways, always at hand to amble amiably into shot for a blast of the Stargate-produced track’s catchy chorus hook. But Tinie’s prominence in the scenes makes it clear that he, first and foremost, is the one running the show. Check out ‘Till I’m Gone’ below.
