Tinie won’t be silent in these trying times.
An unlikely collaboration.
New Music Friday has brought one big name release (Harry Styles), some nod-along radio bops from newbies and, as always, more awful ‘tropical house’ covers of perfectly fine old songs. However, this week’s edition has also came with a new Tinie Tempah song… featuring Jake Bugg?
With seven number one singles under his belt, Tinie Tempah is the UK’s most successful rapper but his past two releases have failed to light up the charts like previous ones (neither cracked the Top 20). Will “Find Me” be the one to break the curse?
Well, the guitar-led empowerment anthem is a nice change from the more generic sounds of the charts and working with Bugg might buy him a bit more credibility with UK listeners than Tinashe.
It’s an interesting change of pace, definitely, but with spring blooming I can only hope that he’s got another summertime banger up his sleeve before his third LP, “Youth”, drops next week.
In saying that, the video for the Tinashe-assisted “Text From Your Ex” only dropped yesterday so it may not have peaked just yet.
Anyway, listen to “Find Me” below.
