The 'Pass Out' star says he draws inspiration from the BRIT Awards 2012 Best Album winner.
Tinie Tempah has revealed that he is inspired by good friend Adele and believes the star is a breath of fresh air in the music industry.
The 'Written In The Stars' rapper told Capital FM on the red carpet of the BRIT Awards 2012 that he was also pleased that both Adele and Ed Sheeran were getting the accolades they deserve.
He said: "For me those two people have triggered people's emotions this year. Whether it was joy or happiness or sadness or something you know they have definitely connected with the people."
Speaking about the 'Rolling In The Deep' singer, he added: "She's a good friend and somebody who inspires me. It's a crazy industry you know and once in a while you meet someone who's a breath of fresh air and I can honestly say she is one of those people."
Adele and Ed both picked up two awards on the night and the 'Set Fire To The Rain' star made her live UK return at the ceremony.
Meanwhile, Tinie also told Capital FM that his new album would be called 'Demonstration' and is about one month away from completion.
