Fresh off of a stellar year as a new artist in the UK, Tinie Tempah has set his sights on America and will be releasing his album, Disc-Overy, on Capitol Records May 3, 2011. The album will contain songs from the UK debut along with new material recorded in the US.
Tinie has earned a lot of bragging rights in a short period of time. The 22 year old can boast that he is the best selling UK newcomer of 2010 and his debut album quickly went platinum and spawned two #1 hits and four Top 5 singles on the other side of the pond. His videos have over 40 million combined plays on YouTube and it was announced last week that he leads the Brit Awards, earning four nominations (British Male Solo Artist, British Breakthrough Act, British Single for Pass Out and British Album of the Year for Disc-Overy); the Brit Awards will take place on February 15th, where Tinie will also be perfoming.
