Ahead of its release on March 1 by Parlophone, Tinie Tempah’s debut single ‘Pass Out’ has now been the no.1 track on Shazam’s pre-release chart for a very impressive five weeks. (And the top five is rounded out by three of Tinie’s EMI label mates – Naughty Boy Presents Wiley Feat. Emeli Sande, Gramophonedzie and Chiddy Bang.)
The video for the track – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzvGKas5RsU – has been viewed over 2 million times now, and has been a Record of the Week at BBC Radio 1 five times.
Tinie is currently on the road with the Sun Bizarre tour, and he will play his first ever Lonodn headline show with a full band on March 1 at the 229 venue. So far he has not made any specific announcements regarding Scunthorpe, so the good people of South Humberside are taking a pro-active stance when it comes to the UK’s hottest MC talent.
