Team UK Has Finally Arrived

8 Mar

Tinie Tempah

Yesterday history was made. I’m not talking award ceremonies but music. Tinie Tempah clinched the number 1 position with his infectious hit Pass Out, beating American heavyweights Rihanna, Timbaland and Alicia Keys.

A few years ago the thought of the UK artists taking the Americans head on in the charts would have been ludicrous, but 2010 has proved that the UK are now holding their own ground. Tinie was also joined in the top 10 by fellow Brits, Wiley and Dizzee Rascal and over in America the foolishness that is Taio Cruz made it to number 1 in the US iTunes charts. We can finally say that UK urban music  has arrived and it’s here to stay.
