Written in the Stars (Parlophone, 2010)

Written in the Stars was the third single off English rapper Tinie Tempah’s debut album Disc-Overy. However, Written in the Stars featured American singer Eric Turner. Written in the Stars debuted at #1 in the UK and was Tempah’s second #1 single (after his debut Pass Out). Written in the Stars served as Tempah’s debut U.S. single where it peaked at #12. It was used by Major League Baseball in their commercials for the 2011 Major League Baseball Postseason and by the WWE as its theme song for WrestleMania XXVII. Sky Sports uses it as their theme for coverage of premier League football. During the Miss USA 2011 competition, the song was used as background music for the Evening Gown competition. The New York Giants used it as their entrance song during Super Bowl XLVI and it could be heard during the closing ceremonies for the London Olympic Games in February 2012.

While Tempah has not any problems hitting the charts again in his native UK, he has only had one other song to hit the Hot 100 — Til I’m Gone which featured rapper Wiz Khalifa and peaked at #90. Written in the Stars was also a #1 single in Ireland. Turner meanwhile, has yet to hit any chart worldwide again, despite featuring on 5 other singles and his debut album release, Eric Turner: The Life.
