Album: No More Idols (2011)
Charted: 39
  • The British production duo Chase & Status' second album No More Idols features a variety of guests artists. "Hitz" features a vocal contribution from rapper Tinie Tempah. Saul "Chase" Milton told Artist Direct the story behind the song: "Well, we wrote that beat a little while ago, and Tinie Tempah supported us last year during our March tour. We did basically every single festival in the UK and around Europe together with him as well. We struck up a relationship and became friends. We wanted to do a track that wasn't just poppy but quite raw and underground instead. It's a throwback to East Coast '90s hip-hop and that was the goal."
