Tinie Tempah shares first new track in three years, ‘Top Winners’
Tinie Tempah has released his first track in three years – listen to ‘Top Winners’ below.
The ‘Pass Out’ artist – real name Patrick Okogwu – teamed-up with rising London rapper Not3s for the new single, which premiered on Radio 1 as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in The World last night (March 16).
“I made this record with Not3s because it’s about a ‘Winners’ mindset and mentality,” Tinie Tempah explained of the song. “Having that outlook has kept us focused – it’s the reason I am where I am, and the reason Not3s is where he is.
“It’s all about striving to achieve more and continue to do better for yourself.”
The three-minute cut arrived with an accompanying video, in which Tempah and Not3s perform playfully to the camera in a colourful rotating room.
‘Top Winners’ arrives after Tinie Tempah celebrated the 10-year anniversary of his debut single ‘Pass Out’. The track went to Number 1 in the UK charts, going on to bag the British Single of the Year award at the BRITs 2011.
Last year, Tinie Tempah became embroiled in a spat between Wiley and Ed Sheeran. He praised the ‘Shape Of You’ singer for creating “authentic” material after Wiley accused him of being a “culture vulture”.
