Plumstead boys JLS team up with Tinie
PUBLISHED: 11:06 02 December 2010
Fetching foursome JLS are set to become a five-piece band as they are joined on tour by Tinie Temper.
The hugely popular boy band, who are behind chart-toppers including Beat Again, Everybody in Love and One Shot will team up with fellow Plumstead-born Tinie for the Outta This World tour.
Tinie will rap alongside the singers on some shows on the 38-date tour, which kicked off in Aberdeen on Monday (29).
The band, who are currently Playlist’s favourite boy band, have given album track Eyes Wide Shut a makeover for their next hit, with added rapping from Tinie.
Marvin Humes, 25, told reporters: “Tinie is a good friend of ours, we grew up in the same area of Plumstead in south London.
“And while I didn’t know him when we were younger, I knew of him as he was breaking through. He’s the best rapper in the country and the only person we wanted to work with so it would be silly not to make this a single.”
Tinie’s debut album, Disc-Overy, debuted at number one on October 10 after scoring major successes with his singles Pass Out and Written in the Stars.
