Tinchy Stryder has praised Cheryl Cole’s massive chart success with her debut single, Fight For This Love this week, which headed to the number one spot, and became the fastest selling single of the year, all in seven days.
Tinchy claims he was “not surprised” when Cheryl’s single got to number one, claiming her popularity on The X Factor helped ensure her song was a huge success.
“I am actually not surprised, if I’m to be honest. It’s a good song and she’s really popular right now,” he said.
“The X Factor is a really powerful show and to be on there and perform, well you cant go wrong with that. [Unless your Whitney Houston.] I met her before and she’s cool so I’m really happy for her.“
The rapper, who reached number one with his own album, Catch 22 in August, revealed that he would not turn down the opportunity to perform on The X Factor. “If I was invited to perform I’d love to – when you see what it can do!“
Tinchy Stryder’s new single, You’re Not Alone is out now.
