Our favourite man of the moment, Diplo, has produced a track for Tinie Tempah called ‘Trampoline’. The track also features American rapper 2 Chainz. ‘Trampoline’ will be released on August 4th and is the first single from Tempahs second album, entitled ‘Demonstration’. The album should be dropping in September. Enjoy..its Friday!
It’s pretty sad that this year we’ve seen major desperation when it comes to chart success. Established artists are no longer confident to rely on their musical talent – oh no – apparently we need full on naked females girating around on the videos to create a buzz. First off we have Robin Thicke and Pharell with ‘Blurred Lines’ and now ageing Justin Timberlake is taking a leaf out of their book with ‘Tunnel Vision’. Is Justin incapable of producing a record without Timberland there to hold his hand?? #justsaying
The song itself, Tunnel Vision, has the same old formula that all Timberlake songs have: fast/slightly manic background beat, some fast lyrics from JT with a melodic chorus layered over the top – and ofcourse random input from rapper Timberland in the distant background. The song isnt anything special; the best thing about it is the atmospheric synthesizer / organ used in the intro and throughout – definately adds a uniqueness to the track. The video is trying to be too arty in a failed cover up at using fully waxed naked models to project JT’s face onto. I think its time to throw in the towel if the only way you get noticed as an artist is to make your vids visually explicit like this – dont you?
