Sizzling British rapper, Tinie Tempah is ready to hit the charts once again with a brand new single titled ‘Mamacita’ with Nigerian atist Wizkid, who is currently slaying worldwide charts along with Drake and Kyla with ‘One Dance’.
This is the third overall, and the second official single from Tinie’s upcoming third studio album, titled ‘YOUTH,’ which is due out September 16th, after following the #1 single ‘Not Letting Go’ which features Jess Glynne, and ‘Girls Like’ with Zara Larsson.
The single was released along with the pre-order and a little tease into the tracklist.
Well, if someone’s providing good summer music this year, it’s definitely Tinie.
This one is a little less ‘in your face’ as ‘Girls Like’ and it isn’t so predictable in production. It has a very mellow beat to it, more RnB/Pop sounding, with a Spanish/Mexican feel, with a roaring trumpet. It’s groove. I honestly see myself walking along Brighton beach somewhere, or Hyde Park, with a portable barbecue with a load of friends drinking cider. So British. I like how there are so many different feels to it, with a tint of Nigerian.
I’m excited to hear the rest of the album, because all the singles that appear to have come off it so far have been actually very good. It also seems that Tinie has reached a place in music that not only suits him as a songwriter and rapper himself, but also he seems comfortable in doing. I feel as if the last two albums he was trying to get into this game of other British rappers, but this album could see himself making his own lane for British rap, and it’s a pleasure to see.
Is it my favourite so far to come off the upcoming album? I wouldn’t say so, as ‘Not Letting Go’ is a music gem, and the hype upon it’s initial release was more overwhelming than this one, however, this is definitely a song that will grow on you every time you listen to it, no matter if you liked it even to begin with. It has that summer vibe that British people long to look for at this time of year in the music world, so I can see this definitely being played a lot on the radio and being more and more popular over time amongst the audiences. There’s just something about it that makes you want to listen to it again and again.
In terms of how well the initial sound of the upcoming album sounds, I think this could be a career changing album for Tinie, and his best yet.
