My new single of the week is from Tinie Tempah ft. Jess Glynne with 'Not Letting Go'.
Tinie Tempah or rather Patrick Chukwuemeka Okogwu as is his real name, hails from London, and is a fantastic cool edgy rapper, without being offensive. Jess Glynne is also from London, and has featured on a number of hit songs in recent years, not least this one.
Tinie has the sort of low key rap style rather than being brash, that softly introduces the song before Jess kicks in with the title line '"Not Letting Go". The combination is really catchy. Jess has such a soulful and unique sound and quality to her vocals, that its distinctive immediately.
The video to this track is 100% cool. Tinie giving a hot girl a piggy back for starters, various wardrobe changes and a back drop of East London with The Shard and the London Eye featured behind them.
This combination of summer pop come edgy rap will be massive this summer everywhere is what I'm betting. Released on 21st June 2015 expect great things of this fabulous hook up.
