We’ve been in love with Ms. Goulding for the good part of 2 years now and she continues to amaze and astonish us with every new piece of work. She’s finally gaining the recognition she deserves with “Lights” climbing the Top 40 charts (albeit 2 years later) and she’s got the most talked about man of the year in music on her arm. We’ve also been huge fans of Tinie Tempah and have been waiting for him to explode onto the U.S. scene the same way he took over the U.K. While America may not be ready for “grime hip-hop” yet, it’s still great to see to Brit’s with different musical talents team up like this. To be honest though, the song is so beautiful and perfectly sung by Ellie that when Tinie Tempah comes in he feels enormously out of place and takes the song out of its core and doesn’t do a whole lot for us.
Mr. Eric Turner cashes in a couple of favors from some hip-hop superstars. His “Written In The Stars” partner, Tinie, and “State Run Radio” partner, Lupe, both hop on this great new track. We had the pleasure of meeting Eric Turner and hanging out with him for a bit during Tinie Tempah’s first New York show last year and he’s one of the nicest and most humble people I’ve met. The guy has some serious talent and a true passion for his art. This is only just the beginning for Eric Turner.
Chances are you didn’t have tickets to see this historical concert. You may have caught the live stream or listened to the amazing set on soundcloud, but in case you missed it here is the full video from that epic night.
