To date: 1.2 million copies of Disc-Overy sold worldwide, 4 million single sales, 12 major awards (including two BRITS, three MOBOs, one Ivor Novello and a BET), 2 No.1 singles (Pass Out, Written In The Stars) and 2 Top 5’s (Miami 2 Ibiza, Frisky). Tinie is also the first British rapper to sell over 1 million singles in the US after Written In The Stars went to No.12 in the Billboard charts.
In the last two years, Tinie has collaborated with, Wiz Khalifa, Soulja Boy, Wretch 32, Emeli Sandé, Ellie Goulding, Swedish House Mafia, Kelly Rowland, J. Cole, and, of course, Labrinth, whose single Earthquake, Ft. Tinie, recently went to No.1, making it Tinie’s third chart-topper.
What makes Tinie’s success even more spectacular is his global reach; a first for a British rapper, Tinie’s name is known throughout the world, with fans from New Zealand, South Africa, Japan and, crucially, America. US X-Factor, David Letterman and Jay Leno have all booked the boy from Plumstead, while US rappers have showered praise on his lyrical skills and fans have snapped up his singles. From national to international waters, Tinie has become one of the UK’s most successful musical exports.
