It is believed that the musical pair developed a relationship when the recorded a unreleased song in London last year.

Omarion told MTV: “Let me tell you a really funny, interesting story about Tinie Tempah. I haven’t spoken to him in a while, but the last time I came to London, a mutual friend connected us together. I heard his stuff and I was like, ‘Let’s go to the studio.’"

"So we started cutting a record and we were vibing. But mind you, it was literally four/five in the morning when we started. So we were kind of way out and I had to catch a flight," he added.

Tinie Tempah, who recently became the first British rapper to go platinum with a debut single in the US, has had a long and successful relationship UK producers Crazy Cousinz, which dates back to early collaborations on his undeground hits Wifey and Hood Economics.

Arch Your Back is set for release this Autumn.
