Album: The Disc-Overy (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the closing track from British rapper Tinie Tempah's debut album, The Disc-Covery. The song features Scottish singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé, who has also appeared on Chipmunk's 2009 hit "Diamond Rings" and Wiley's Top Ten song "Never Be Your Woman."
  • Tempah didn't originally write this as the CD's closing track. He told Artist Direct: "I didn't know it was going to be the last track. Obviously when I heard the track, I thought that this was going to be the track where I was going to lay bare, if you will, and pour my heart out to everybody who was listening. When I finished the vocals, it felt like it could be the last track but I wasn't sure until we compiled the tracklisting. It feels right, and it ends on a nice note. I hope it gets people excited for the next project because it's going to be even crazier."
