Cool Collabo’s

Guest Blogger: Tina Hart

Not solely content with doing their own thing, many a popstar chooses to team up with a famous mate. Fair do’s. At the moment there are some very exciting hook ups going on, in fact in some cases I’m so excited I might just combust. So before that happens, here are my top picks of real, and potential, cool collaborations…

Esmée @ T4 on the beach © PA ImagesPixie @ T4 on the beach © PA ImagesLooking hot-to-trot at T4 on the beach alongside Chipmunk last Sunday, Esmée Denters is releasing her new single Love Dealer featuring mentor and boss Justin Timberlake this month. Esmée said in a recent interview that she’d love to duet with UK pop starlet Pixie Lott – can someone please make this happen?

N*E*R*D teamed up with Nelly Furtado on Hot n Fun to introduce us to the sound of their new album Nothing which was due out in June, then July and now will be coming out early September. Dammit. If you can’t wait that long then you can enjoy the video from the lead single which has had the Jonas Åkerlund (of Gaga and Beyoncé’s Telephone) treatment. It certainly shows, with a fun, literal translation of the track title onto the screen: desert, convertible car, party, scantily clad beauties and all.

Brought together by a combination of pure fanpower and the force that is Twitter, this intriguing package is apparently going to include its own video and everyone laying lyrics over a grime beat. There are a few remixes already doing the rounds and I’m loving the UK remix featuring Tinie Tempah and Tinchy Stryder (who’s upcoming single In My System features Jodie Connor of Roll Deep fame).

I know that talented trio, Tinie Tempah, Labrinth and Ellie Goulding have been in the studio together (woohoo) and further prospective collabo’s include: Lil Kim wanting to work with Rihanna, Katy Perry and her desire for Marina (of Marina and the Diamonds), and again, Tinie Tempah but this time calling for Muse, Paulo Nutini and Dizzee Rascal. What a marvellous bunch of musical mash ups!
