British rap star Tinie Tempah is working diligently on the follow-up to his crossover rap album ‘Disc-Overy.’ The ‘R.I.P.’ rhyme-spitter is getting musical inspiration from various artists that he’s met recently. One of them happens to be musician Chris Martin of Coldplay.

“Chris Martin has been quite an influence on this album,” Tempah tells NME, adding, “It’s definitely a lot more progressive in the quality of the sound. I’ve been listening to Lykke Li and Lana Del Rey, the dynamics of the sound, how big and anthemic it gets.”

Tempah also revealed that the title of the second album is called ‘Demonstration.’ “The main goal is to get the new album out and it do really well – better than the last one,” he says. “And do a world tour.”

Although he wouldn’t revealed who will appeared on the new album, there’s talk of Jessie J and Dizzie Rascal being on the collection. And if it’s written in the stars, Tempah hopes to collaborate with Grammy-winning songbird Adele. “I want to work with [her] this year,” he tells NME. “We started to talk about it, but because of how crazy things went for her we never really got round to completing that conversation.”

We hope the pair renew those talks — a Tempah-Adele duet sounds like music to our ears.
