Tinie Tempah gets a lyrical boost on next US single “Till I’m Gone” from “Roll Up” MC Wiz Khalifa. The Stargate-produced track is one of three new ones recorded for the American version of upcoming Live On Letterman performer (did you enter to win tickets?) Tinie’s debut LP Disc-Overy (out May 17). Listen below!
“Come out and play, let’s pour another bottle / Let’s do it all today and worry ’bout it all tomorrow,” Tinie raps on “Till I’m Gone” — a sentiment that’s somewhat reminiscent of the one in Britney Spears’ current hit “Till The World Ends.”
Meanwhile, Wiz takes up chorus duties on the track. “Through the fight, through the pain, booked a flight, took a plane / Told her not to cry, I’ll be back one day,” he promises.
The track itself bears more than a little resemblance to Khalifa’s own winter hit “Black And Yellow” (also produced by Stargate). But these two MCs’ clever word play is charming enough to have us overlooking that fact.
What do you think — do Tinie and Wiz have another hit on their hands?
