Tinie v Labrinth rivalry turns out to be invented

By | Published on Thursday 30 September 2010

This week, Tinie Tempah released his first single not produced by Labrinth, ‘Written In The Stars’. Angered at this slight, Labrinth went and released his own debut single, ‘Let The Sunshine’, on the same day.

The scuffle looks set to go to the wire, with sales of both tracks neck-a-neck in the race for number one. It is presumably planned that the pair will now meet in a south London carpark later this week to sort it out like men.

Well, according to Labrinth, this is not the case. He told The Sun: “It’s funny, everyone keeps asking if there is beef between us. There isn’t. We’re really rooting for each other. I helped make him. My success is his success and his success is my success. Whoever gets to number one, we’ll be going out together to celebrate”.

However, it’s a different story for Adele. Her new single, ‘Make You Feel My Love’, is also rocketing up the charts, and both Tinie Tempah and Labrinth are reportedly furious. Both were overheard inside my head just now plotting to smash her guitar up and spread a rumour that she’s stolen all her songs off Duffy.
