LOVE Island’s Biggs Chris is working with Tinie Tempah on a secret music project as he launches his career as a rapper.
The 28-year-old got a special invitation to join Tinie at a recording studio in London after they bonded over TikTok videos.
For now they’re keeping their collaboration under wraps, but Biggs says: “Watch this space.”
“Music has always been something I’ve been interested to do, but I was always too shy,” said Biggs in an exclusive interview with HOAR.
“I kept it to myself because I felt embarrassed, so I would sing or rap in my room growing up.
“I could never have stood up in a crowd and started singing. I thought people would laugh at me – but Love Island gave me the confidence I needed.
“It’s a shock to everyone, even my family can’t believe it.”
Biggs is already booked in for another studio session with Tinie next week after the pair hit it off.
“I came across Tinie Tempah’s TikTok at about 4am in the morning and five minutes later he followed me,” said Biggs.
“The next morning I got a message from his manager saying Tinie Tempah wants to work with me.
“I was so gassed, I felt so happy.
“We met up and he invited me to the studio. I can’t say too much, but we’re making content together, collaborating, that’s the best way to put it.
“They’ve invited me up again there next week.”
British rapper Tinie shot to fame debut single Pass Out went to the top of the charts in 2010. He’s now got seven No1s under his belt.
After taking a break from the industry, the 32-year-old returned with new music last year.
As well as working with Tinie, Biggs has spent time in the studio with fellow Love Island star Wes Nelson.
Biggs added: “He came to see me at my friend’s studio. A collaboration with him could happen, why not? He’s so talented.”
