Last Friday, Tinie Tempah announced his third studio album YOUTH along with his brand new single 'Mamacita' Ft. Wizkid. Naturally, this pleased us immensely. We've been waiting for the follow up to Demonstration forever but what we didn't expect was a casual chart fact thrown into the press release....

Speaking of his new album which features said No.1s 'Not Letting Go' and 'Turn The Music Louder', Tinie said: "I wanted to give a nod to all of the genres of music I heard growing up that made me want to be a rapper.
“The good thing about being from London is that you hear so many different styles of music, and are exposed to so many different things. I wanted to make an album that felt nostalgic with elements of those big British sounds from different genres, whether that was garage, grime, hip-hop or R&B.
"It’s also about empowering young people to think outside the box," he continued. "I was just a young boy out of south London who loved music and wanted to see the world and contribute to something that I love and have a passion for. I honestly feel that there is no limit to where you can get in life. I really believe that. Youth is the time where you dream without any limitations or fear. And I wanted to share MY story with the world through MY music."
YOUTH is set for release on 16th September.
