Rizzle Kicks would love to collaborate with Prince.
The ‘Down With The Trumpets’ duo – who are made up of Harley Alexander-Suleeach and Jordan Stephens – regard the legendary musician as a ”big inspiration” and they would love to work with him in the future.
Harley exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ”We would love to work with Prince, that would be a great honour. He’s been a big inspiration for us. It would be amazing to work with him.”
The group – who have been nominated for the British Single prize at the BRIT Awards for their ‘Heart Skips A Beat’ duet with Olly Murs – are determined to be a sustainable band rather just ”one hit wonders”.
Harley added: ”We always want to be around and have respect like The Streets have. We don’t just want to have a few big singles and then that’s it. Hopefully we’re not one hit wonders.
”It’s like with The Streets’ albums – you can always put them on and enjoy them whenever you want. We’d like people to think that about us. We really admire what Mike Skinner has done.
”We’ve already had a top five album and that’s probably the best thing we’ve achieved so far. We are really proud of that, so hopefully we can keep going.
”The best thing about the album doing well was that it entered the charts at number nine and then dropped down a bit before it made it to number five.”
