Chipmunk needs to progress

Chipmunk has insisted ''progression is the key'' to keeping his career on track in 2010, but has vowed to take more time off, after the pressures of work got on top of him in 2009.

Chipmunk says "progression is the key" to keeping his career on track in 2010. The 19-year-old rapper - who scored a UK number one single with 'Oopsy Daisy' earlier this year - is hoping to build on the success he has achieved over the last two years. He said: "Definitely the biggest highlight of the last year was releasing my album and my fans getting to hear all my music. "I would say if I can do what I've done in the last two years in 2010 then I will be happy - progression is the key." Despite his ambitions, Chipmunk - who raised fears for his wellbeing after he posted messages on his twitter blog suggesting he was contemplating suicide - learnt the value of taking time off and slowing down in 2009. He added: "It's been crazy, like, insane this year. I say I don't think anyone understands, but there are a hundred other artists that are also trying to make it. Maybe it's because I've just come out of college, it's a bit different but I'm getting to grips with it. Rest, rest. You've got to take rest, definitely."
