Rap star and devout Arsenal fan Tinie Tempah previews his eagerly anticipated third album ‘YOUTH’ with the release of two very different tracks in the shape of ‘Text From Your Ex’ and ‘Chasing Flies’ which are both available to stream now on our Matchday Stadium Playlist. Check them out below!
Featuring the sultry tones of American R&B star Tinashe, ‘Text From Your Ex’ captures a similar magic to what Tinie Tempah has consistently delivered with the biggest hits of his career to date with his boisterous rhymes, rich with personality, combined with infectious hooks. ‘Text From Your Ex’ was produced by Jax Jones, who is currently riding high in the charts with ‘You Don’t Know Me’.
Tinie explains: ”Text from your ex, is about that moment in Youth where you think you’re that fly boy who’s got a lot of girls, and your girl sees a text on your phone and your belly sinks, all your confidence goes out the window and you feel like, man, this is the end. It’s a real life situation I know a lot of people will relate to.”
By contrast, the second track ‘Chasing Flies’ is a slowburning shift of both mood and pace in which Tinie celebrates a new relationship and reflects on how it influences his outlook. Tinie is always eager to help bring new artists to prominence and ‘Chasing Flies’ features a beguiling new talent in the shape of Swedish newcomer Nea. Tinie collaborated on the song with Nea as well as the track’s producer TroyBoi.
