First off, don’t ask me why the hell they have decided to wear ‘crazy sun protectors’ in a clearly well lit studio, they both look like bloody idiots.
Back on topic though, Tinie Tempah and Labrinth once again combined at the Live Lounge to give an acoustic performance of Tinie’s latest single Frisky – which was pretty good to tell you the truth. It shows he has more strings to his bow than just Rap and Drum ‘n’ Bass (lol).
The second performance was a cover of Muse’s rebellious, antiestablishmentarianism fuelled track Uprising. For some reason he decided to add in lyrics from Baddiel, Skinner & The Lightning Seeds’ – Three Lions, in what was probably a cheap attempt to tap in to the England’s World Cup fever (to boost single sales no doubt).
I’m not sure whether I like the cover or not, but I appreciate the fact that he went quite left field with his choice of song.
