John Newman Collaborations: 9 Pop Stars We Want Him To Team Up With
The 'Love Me Again' singer has been scoring hit after hit with his debut album 'Tribute', and we reckon EVERYONE is going to want a piece of John over the next year. Here's nine artists who should definitely get in that recording studio with him ASAP...
1. 1. Ellie Goulding
This one's a no brainer. Ellie and John are two of THE most talked about UK solo artists right now, with both popularity AND credibility. Put them on an up-tempo dance number with a big-name producer and watch those sales shoot up...
2. 2. DJ Fresh
John has already teamed up with pals Rudimental a couple of times, but a collab with 'Hot Right Now' producer DJ Fresh could give him another dancefloor smash. Having previously recorded with stars like Rita Ora and Dizzee Rascal, we can imagine this thought has already crossed DJ Fresh's mind.
3. 3. Emeli Sande
If John wants to slow things down on a ballad number there's no one better suited than Ms. Emeli Sande. Between John's soulful old-school voice and Emeli's powerhouse diva vocals... this could be 'Beneath Your Beautiful' part two!
4. 4. Sam Smith
It only makes sense that two of the most talked about male stars of the moment could get even MORE success by hooking up on a track. Superstar + Superstar = #CertainHit!
5. 5. Calvin Harris
Calvin Harris pretty much NEVER makes a wrong move when it comes to his singles, so if John's looking for a collaboration partner who can deliver... our money's on this superstar DJ.
6. 6. Professor Green
Between Professor Green's signature rapping style and John's crooning abilities... this could be a VERY unique team-up!
7. 7. Rita Ora
Rita's got a new album in the works right now... could she have given Mr. Newman a bell for a quick studio sesh?! #FingersCrossed
8. 8. Iggy Azalea
Aussie rap star Iggy ALWAYS brings something a little different to her songs, and we reckon her musical sensibilities could be the perfect match for an Odd Couple style union between this pair.
9. 9. Macklemore
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are just now starting to work on songs for the follow-up to 'The Heist' and you just KNOW they must have heard John's incredible vocals on Rudimental's 'Not Giving In' and 'Feel The Love'. #JustSaying.
