Tinie: Adele is so inspirational
Tine Tempah would love to mirror Adele's stateside success.
The Pass Out star - who is already getting plenty of attention across the pond - has revealed he's keen to emulate his fellow Londoner's chart-topping ways with the US release of his album Disc-Overy.
"You know it's very, very inspiring... and I know Adele personally so it kind of resonates a lot more," he said.
"Her album (21) is not moving off of the top spot, and neither is her single (Rolling In the Deep)."
Disc-Overy debuted this week at No. 21 in the US Billboard 200 charts.
But Tinie admitted he's still getting to grips with the different radio formats in the US.
"I still don't understand what rhythmic and Top 40 is. Can someone tell me please?" he said.
"There's a lot to fathom and there's a lot to kind of work out in America."
