Marcus Collins On America: "The UK Is Where My Heart Is"

7 March 2012, 17:21

The X Factor runner-up says he has no plans to try and crack America yet and is happy staying in the UK.

Marcus Collins says he is happy to keep his focus on the UK music scene for the time being but is proud of acts like The Wanted achieving success stateside.

The 'Seven Nation Army' singer says his heart is still very much in Britain and he has no plans to take his music to the US just yet.

"America might be a little ambitious for me," Marcus wrote in a column for the Daily Star. "I want to focus on the UK – it's where my heart is."

The X Factor 2011 runner-up has also confirmed he is currently single after recently splitting from a partner.

"I've only just finished a relationship so I'm seeing what happens," he added. "It was very difficult but we've decided to be friends. Change can be good as it's growth."

23 year-old Marcus has promised he doesn't want to imitate established artists with his musical direction but still takes inspiration from the likes of James Brown and Beyonce. 

Marcus Collins' debut single 'Seven Nation Army' is out now and his self-titled debut album follows on 12th March.
