SUPERSTAR LEADS THE BRIT AWARDS WITH FOUR NOMINATIONS
FIRST EVER U.S. TV PERFORMANCE ON JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE FEBRUARY 2ND

(January 19, 2011 – Los Angeles, CA) – Fresh off of a stellar year as a new artist in the UK, Tinie Tempah has set his sights on America and will be releasing his album, Disc-Overy, on Capitol Records May 3, 2011. The album will contain songs from the UK debut along with new material recorded in the US.
Tinie has earned a lot of bragging rights in a short period of time. The 22 year old can boast that he is the best selling UK newcomer of 2010 and his debut album quickly went platinum and spawned two #1 hits and four Top 5 singles on the other side of the pond. His videos have over 40 million combined plays on YouTube and it was announced last week that he leads the Brit Awards, earning four nominations (British Male Solo Artist, British Breakthrough Act, British Single for Pass Out and British Album of the Year for Disc-Overy); the Brit Awards will take place on February 15th, where Tinie will also be performing.
Tinie has designated 2011 as the year he will duplicate his successes in America and he is already making waves. MTV recently named him an “Artist to Watch in 2011.” His latest single, “Written in the Stars,” is an addictive and message-driven song that will inspire listeners to stay in the positive and believe in themselves. Entertainment Weekly named the song the “next big hit of 2011.” The song will be available on iTunes on January 25th with the accompanying video making its debut the same day on Vevo.com.
