Tinie Tempah

Tinie Tempah follows last week’s number one single ‘Written In The Stars’ with a number one album. His debut album release, ‘Disc-Overy‘, lands one of the biggest first week sales for an album this year, so far selling some 85,000 copies – the highest tally for a number one artist since Eminem’s ‘Recovery’ album 15 weeks ago. The album will be certified ‘Gold’ this week with over 100,000 sales.

Tinie also has six tracks in the Top 60 singles chart this week, two tracks in the Top 5, ‘Written in the Stars’ and ‘Miami 2 Ibiza’ – Tinie’s collaboration with Swedish House Mafia. He is the biggest selling UK singles artist of the year with over 1 million singles sales in the UK alone.

His debut album has had an amazing reaction across the board;
