Tinie Tempah has revealed his duet with Kelly Rowland on his upcoming debut album 'Disc-Overy' is a tribute to her old group Destiny's Child

Tinie Tempah pays homage to Destiny's Child with a track on his debut album.

The 'Pass Out' rapper recorded the duet 'Invincible' with Kelly Rowland - who alongside Beyonce Knowles and Michelle Williams made up the definitive line-up of the girl group - for his LP 'Disc-Overy' and says it is inspired by the style of the R 'n' B group.

Tinie exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "She's like the coolest chick. The song we do, 'Invincible', is a very sort of slow ballad type track, very R 'n' B influenced, and it's basically because I'm a huge Destiny's Child fan and when I got the opportunity to work with Kelly I was like, 'Do you know what? We're going to make a track that's similar to everything I grew up listening to from you, Beyonce and Michelle.' "

According to the 21-year-old hip-hop artist the song has already received a great reception from fans when he has performed it live.

He said: "The track has been a big hit at a lot of my live shows and I can't wait for people to hear it in full on the album."

Tinie - real name Patrick Chukwuem Okogwu Jr.  - also praised Kelly's down-to-earth nature when she came to the studio to record with him.

He added: "Kelly is the most down to earth woman in the world, especially for someone of her status, as someone who's achieved as much as she has."

'Disc-Overy' is released on October 4.
