Desperately in need of a hit, Tinie Tempah has enlisted the help of nobody's favourite up-and-coming British pop singer Jess Glynne for the first single from his upcoming third studio album. The album, which follows 2013's Demonstration, is as yet untitled although Tinie reported last year that it will likely be his last.

Listen to and discuss the song below:

Nice enough to listen to but it's another complete sell-out for Tinie. Gone are the days of greats such as "Pass Out". This could almost be a Flo Rida song.

this is good and will probably be a decent sized hit, still looks like he'll never produce a song nearly as great as 'Pass Out' sadly.

Pass Out is a once in a career song laugh.gif In a way, that was his 'In da Club' moment - a massive crossover hit with diminishing returns (in the eyes of some) ever since.

Part of me is glad he's gone back to his London roots for this. His last album was launched with a Diplo beat and a 2 Chainz feature compared to a Jess Glynne feature and a Bless Beat production this time around. Demonstration was a relative flop and I think that was in part for being too Americanised (and Children of the Sun being the most desperate attempt for a hit!).

The song is a grower I think. Not too sure the verses and chorus belong in the same song, but it is a very effective chorus. I imagine this will go top 10, but not #1.

Best of British RIGHT THERE peeps!

Whilst Pass Out is indeed amazing, I've loved pretty much all his big hits since on a similar level. Trampoline & Children Of The Sun were both outstanding in my opinion biggrin.gif

This is sounding really nice on first listen, it's good how he chops & changes his style as mentioned his 3 leads could scarcely be more different sounding!

Only just realised that this video is partly filmed about two minutes walk from where I work. I often spend my lunch break sitting exactly where the park scenes were filmed (Brockwell Park in Herne Hill, South East London).

The song weirdly reminds me in parts of Chick Fit by All Saints melodically laugh.gif
