"Angels & Stars" is a song by American singer-songwriter Eric Turner, featuring vocals from rappers Lupe Fiasco and Tinie Tempah. The song was released as Turner's debut solo single in the United States on January 31, 2012. An EP of remixes was later released to digital outlets on April 3, 2012.

Background[edit]

"Angels & Stars" was written by Turner, Tinie Tempah, Lupe Fiasco and "iSHi" Mughal, and produced by the latter. The song was first leaked online on January 18, 2012, before being officially released on January 31, 2012. The music video was released via Vevo on February 3, 2012. The video was directed by P.R. Brown. A five-minute behind-the-scenes video was release two days prior to the official premiere. The video features Turner walking down a busy sidewalk to a building, which he eventually jumps onto and starts walking up. Whilst doing this, clips of Turner, Lupe Fiasco, Tinie Tempah and, briefly, iSHi, are seen on the wall. At the end of the video, Turner jumps off the wall and walks away.[1]
