Rapper/singer Tinie Tempah has scored seven No. 1 singles in his native UK, including his latest, “Girls Like,” featuring singer Zara Larsson. Tempah’s charismatic, autobiographical rhymes weave seamlessly around the track’s rhythmic and insistent electro-bounce before its powerful pop hook pounds into prominence.
The video for “Girls Like” is now streaming on YouTube and can be watch below.
“With the video, we really tried to do something completely different to what we’d done before, we headed to the Woodstock suburb in Cape Town – one of the most beautiful parts of Africa – to film this, and the participation of the locals gave it a really different energy and vibe. Africa is part of my heritage and this video shows me and aspects of my world in a way that I have never done before. I’m really inspired by South African house music at present, and this video represents that very authentically with plenty of dancing and loads of really cool moves.”
Tempah will perform at the 92.3 AMP Radio “End of Summer Party,” alongside The Chainsmokers, on September 21st at PlayStation Theater in New York City.
