By now we all know Tinie Tempah’s smash “Written in the Stars”, which features Eric Turner’s soaring vocals on the chorus. After the song’s release in fall 2010, it skyrocketed to the top of the UK chart, and reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100. And so, after such a stellar achievement, we’re more than excited to premiere Turner’s own take on the song, “Written In The Stars 2.0”. We’ve also got an exclusive video of Tinie and Eric talking about how they came to collaborate on their hit single. Watch below! Eric Turner — “Written In The Stars 2.0”
