6 March 2012, 20:50

The X Factor runner-up says he will create his own musical style and doesn't want to emulate any single artist.

Marcus Collins says he doesn't plan on copying any artist in the music industry but is happy to take inspiration from everyone from James Brown to Beyonce.

The 'Seven Nation Army' singer, who finished second on the 2011 series of The X Factor, made the comments while discussing his future as party of a Vevo feature.

"I don't think I'd like to emulate any artist," Marcus explains in the video clips. "I'd like to take little pieces from a lot of people.

"I love James Brown's energy. I love how polished Beyonce's performances are with the choreography and the staging and the vocals."

"I don't think I'd like to copy anyone, I want to stay true to me," Marcus added.

The 23 year-old singer also named Stevie Wonder as the artist he would most like to duet with one day in the future.

Marcus Collins released debut single 'Seven Nation Army' on Sunday (4th March) and his debut album 'Marcus Collins' follows on 12th March.
