"Help Me" is a song by recording artist Tinchy Stryder, and was released on 30 September 2012, as the fourth single from his scrapped fourth album: Full Tank. Full Tank was scrapped so Help Me became a non-album single.[1] The song, produced by Art Bastian, was written by Tinchy Stryder, Camille Purcell and Ollie Jacobs, and features uncredited vocals by Camille Purcell.

Background[edit]

The single was announced during an interview with Digital Spy, uploaded on July 12, 2012,[2] and Tinchy Stryder announcing he is now reinvented, and that with "Help Me" – It reaches out religiously to God. "Help Me" is incorporated with female verses and vocals.[2]

The track was co-written by Kwasi Danquah III, Camille Purcell and Ollie Jacobs, and was produced by Art Bastian.[3]

Music video[edit]

A music video was made for "Help Me", and it was filmed in New Orleans, Louisiana. The accompanying music video sees Tinchy Stryder performing the track in a poverty-stricken neighbourhood.[1][4]

Other scenes focus on Christian iconography, statues and buildings, directly representing the chorus's lyrics of "God, help me".[1]
