Wretch32 learning piano skills
Wretch32 wants to learn how to play Adele songs on the piano, to impress girls.
The 'Unorthadox' rapper revealed he has a softer side and although he is only at a beginner level, thinks the soulful singer's biggest hit would be his perfect show piece.
When asked what he'd use to impress a girl, Wretch told BANG Showbiz: "I'd love to play Adele's 'Someone like You' on piano. But I can't sing it, when we did a cover for the radio I had great guest vocalist in - it wasn't going to happen for me.
"I can play a bit on piano, a couple of tracks, Coldplay's 'Spiderwebs', well - I can do most of it."
The rapper had a huge hit in the UK with his track 'Unorthadox', which samples The Stone Roses track 'Fools Gold', but he's now keen to move on and write his own hooks on his next singles.
He said: "I'm trying to move away from samples. The focus for me is to make something that someone else will be sampling in 20 or 50 years time.
"I'm trying to make stuff that stands out, that other people are thinking, 'I'm going to sample that' in 20- years time."
Wretch was yesterday (09.06.11) working with over 100 local youth volunteers in London helping to regenerate a youth centre as part of the Orange RockCorps initiative scheme. The programme rewards people for volunteering in their community and for working with charities by putting on free concerts and performances from stars for them.
