Labrinth turned Rihanna down
Labrinth turned down working with Rihanna to concentrate on British artists.
The singer- who produced behind Tinie Tempah's singles 'Pass Out' and 'Frisky' - was being lined up to work with the 'Hard' singer, but decided against it so he could concentrate on the currently flourishing UK urban scene.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I met Rihanna at a dinner, because Jay-Z's Roc Nation label wanted to sign me, but I wasn't happy with the offer.
"I could work with Rihanna if I wanted to but right now, I'm going to stick to UK artists."
"I love the idea that our industry and out urban industry is coming up. We've got loads of American coming over here to I talk to us about music, so it's really exciting and we need to create more while the door is open."
Labrinth - real name Timothy McKenzie - has recently worked writing tracks with Professor Green, N-Dubz and Pixie Lott but says he's also now ready to break out into the mainstream himself, with new single 'Let the Sun Shine'.
He said: "I was performing before I was producing, I've got the confidence for it, and I believe I'm ready. I just love music, it doesn't matter what I do with it. I've learned how to do me very well, and I'm ready to break out."
'Let the Sun Shine' is released on September 27.Posted on 13 Sep 2010 07:00 to category : Music News
