Chipmunk announced on Twitter that he will be leaving us and moving to America.

The 21-year-old star, who recently changed his name to Chip, has been spending a lot of time in the U.S recently and his last collaborations were all with big American stars, so to be honest we’re not really surprised he’s doing a runner.

Chip follows in the footsteps of soul singer Estelle, who made her Stateside move in 2007 and never came back and we wonder if the Every Gal rapper ever plans to return.

And even though he promised his fans the trip wouldn’t be long-term, you can never be sure with these artists.

We hope you stick to your word Chip!
