Labrinth - the hot talent

Labrinth shows he has talent 

When you're Simon Cowell's first non-TV talent show signing in six years, you must be pretty special to get where thousands have failed. Enter: Labrinth. 

Hailing from Hackney, 22 year old Timothy McKenzie made his debut as Labrinth in 2010 with his collaboration with Tinie Tempah, Pass Out, reaching No 1. The single also won a BRIT award. This was followed by the No 2 single Frisky, another collaboration with Tempah. Solo singles Let the Sun Shine and Earthquake also made into the Top 3.

Labrinth's debut album titled Electronic Earth, was released in March 2012, reaching No.2 in the UK Album charts and has spawned smash hit singles Last Time, Express Yourself and his No.1 collab with Emeli Sande

Labrinth talents also include songwriting and producing, and has worked on tracks for Professor Green, Pixie Lott and JLS.
