Chart Juice: Tinie Tempah Debuts on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs
After conquering the Hot 100 chart with his first US single "Written in the Stars" - peaking No. 12 in May - Tinie Tempah debuts at No. 85 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart with "Till I'm Gone."
"Till I'm Gone," featuring Wiz Khalifa, has racked up 1.1 million listener impressions, according to Nielsen BDS. The UK rapper's debut was seen coming from miles away. His album "Disc-Overy" debuted and peaked at No. 2 on R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart last month. "Disc-Overy" has been No. 3 on Rap Albums since making it's debut on the chart on June 11.
There's no doubt that Wiz Khalifa's feature on "Till I'm Gone" was the cherry on top. Wiz has two Top 10's in his back pocket: "Black and Yellow" and "Roll Up." "Black and Yellow" peaked on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart at No. 6 in February and "Roll Up" peaked at No. 7 in April. "Till I'm Gone" is Wiz's seventh charting title, six of which debuted on the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart this year.
Tinie Tempah has seen success beyond the US charts. "Written in the Stars" peaked at No. 5 on the European Hot 100 on Oct, 2010. In March, "Disc-Overy" peaked at No. 6 on the United Kingdom Albums chart.
