Brit rapper Tinie Tempah appears to believe that “Written in the Stars” is the key to his success in the United States. He’s performed the song on numerous TV shows already, and repeated that trick on Jay Leno’s show last night (June 9). It’s not hard to see the commercial appeal here—the only thing that might stop him making a connection to wider audiences is his accent, which seems to be the biggest hurdle that artists like Dizzee Rascal and Tinchy Stryder (both bona fide pop stars in the U.K.) have yet to overcome. Still, there’s a more concerted promo push behind Tempah than both those artists, so we’ll see how this pans out. The performance above definitely won’t do him any harm.
