Tinie Tempah delays second album
Tinie Tempah is delaying the release of his second album to concentrate on breaking the US.
The British rapper had planned to bring out a follow-up to debut 'Disc-Overy' later this year, but after his single 'Written in the Stars' went to number 14 in the US charts he is putting all his efforts into making it big there.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Tinie has got the busiest schedule around, but you'll never hear him moan. Even when he's on a plane, he's thinking of ideas for his next album, show or performance.
"As much as he wants to get new music out to his fans he doesn't want to short-change them, so the album will now come out in 2012."
The American public appear to be very taken with Tinie, especially after discovering he hung out with Prince William and his fiancee Kate Middleton at last year's Radio One's Big Weekend event in his homw country.
The source added: "All the Americans want to ask Tinie is about meeting the royals. They're overwhelmed at the story of Wills declaring himself a big fan of his debut single 'Pass Out'."
Tinie, 22, was also flattered by his meeting with royalty, telling BANG Showbiz: "Prince William came to watch me, and that was a really surreal.
"To think that the future king of England was watching my set and, like, singing along to my lyrics was a little bit crazy.
"But he was so sincere and just one hundred per cent, just very much personal and nice to know - we got on like a house on fire."Posted on 28 Apr 2011 10:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
