Alicia Keys dream of duetting with Prince
Alicia Keys is desperate to duet with Prince.
The 'No One' singer - who has won nine Grammy Awards during her music career - says it would be a dream come true to record a track with her idol, the only celebrity who has left her completely star-struck.
Speaking during an appearance on UK radio station BBC Radio 1Xtra, the 28-year musician said: "I met Prince before. I tried to act cool but I definitely had a little star-struck moment. He's great."
Although Alicia - who was interviewed by Trevor Nelson for his show which airs on Saturday evening (23.01.10) - is targeting Prince for a collaboration, she is happy for now to have got the opportunity to work with Beyonce Knowles on her soon-to-be released single 'Put It In A Love Song'.
Alicia, 28, said: "We had a lot of fun. It's nice that we just celebrate each others careers, that's what the song is about, coming together to empower each other. We've become really good friends. We've been in the business about the same amount of time and both signed to Columbia records together when we were 14. It was like a party in the studio, the energy was so high and chemistry was genuine."
It's not only 'Raspberry Beret' hitmaker Prince who Alicia has got her artistic eyes on.
She recently revealed she would be keen to collaborate with Kings of Leon and M.I.A. as well.
She said: "Working with other people is definitely something I want to do more of. I love it a lot. It takes me out of my element into a whole other world. I'd love to collaborate with Kings of Leon and M.I.A. I think would be crazy."Posted on 22 Jan 2010 10:30 to category : Music News
