MNEK Working With X Factor’s Tamera Foster
The multi-talented singer/writer/producer talks weird encounters in the studio, Becky Hill and a follow up to 'Gecko (Overdrive)'...
Chatting exclusively to MTV backstage at MTV Crashes Derry-Londonderry, the Ready For Your Love singer told us of a recent odd encounter in his studio while he was waiting for the new Syco signee about arrive of a guy that just wouldn't leave! Watch the vid to find out what happened...
The singer/songwriter/producer also dished on bezzie mate Becky Hill's new track Losing:
"Becky's my best friend, man. She's my everything. That girl is so talented and she's got so much drive and 'Losing' was the first song we wrote together and to see that finally out there is actually quite like …it's our little baby, so you see that out there and people are responding to it so positively it's really great."
MNEK and Hill, who co-wrote her track with Oliver Heldens Gecko (Overdrive), also gave us the scoop on a potential follow-up to the No.1 smash:
"I don't wanna say too much but," he teased, " (but) it's really massive. I listened to the first mix of it yesterday, it's great. We've got a new singer named K Stewart who's another one of me and Becky's friends - me and Becky wrote this one as well - (and) yeah she sounds incredible, she's got this massive voice and yeah that should be out really soon too."
MTV Crashes Derry-Londonderry airs on MTV Music and MTV Live HD October 18/19.
