MTV UK sat down with the star to talk N-Dubz, Devlin & er, Lady GaGa...
He is also gearing up to release his debut album Labrinth and my second single is Devlin. I’ve got a crazy record for him! We always see each other when we’re at events, we never get to talk. Hopefully one day I can get him in the studio at some point, it’ll have to be soon. I just know that if he gets on this record then it's gonna be something special. I’m a very big fan of Devlin and I think he’s very good at what he does and I think he’s one of the best- if I’m being honest. Devlin, if you’re reading this, you need to get in contact with MTV!
Madonna, especially her videos. I think the imagery with the music was so magical.
Q: What do you make of Lady GaGa because she’s been compared to Madonna, especially when it comes to her videos?
A: I actually think GaGa is one of a kind. I think they put them in the same bracket because they are both girls and a bit controversial, but I actually think they are totally different. I think Lady GaGa's an amazing songwriter, she looks like she’s someone who knows what she wants. I just think she’s going to be an icon.
Q: Are there any new artists coming up through the ranks that you think we should look out for, apart from yourself?
A: I think you should definitely look out for Encore and another band called Dutchess, they’re crazy as well.
Q: You have been named as one of MTV’s artists that we love, what can we expect from you in 2011?
A: I think more music, more music videos, more shows to see me sing my heart out, hopefully the N-Dubz tour and of course, more of Loick!
Loick's new single Stuttering Featuring N-Dubz is out on Sunday 6th February.
