Mike Posner "I wanna work with Kanye"

From Capitals showbiz reporter Kevin Hughes.

Mike Posner has arrived back in London, after attending Sundays MTV EMA Awards in Madrid.

The 22 year old Detroit singer is continuing to promote Cooler than Me, which is still Top 10 on the Vodafone Freebees Big Top 40.  

So how was Madrid for Mike? "It was fun, I had fun. I got to meet Kid Rock and Kanye and that meeting was special. About two years my best friend Big Sean signed to Kanye West and I got introduced to him in an elevator. So I when I met him I asked if he liked the music I sent him and he said no. That no from him inspired me so much and I worked so hard to get my music right, making better beats and writing better songs. So I meet him in Madrid and Kanye told me I love your songs, so I was like Man, thank you sir.  So does Mike want to work with Kanye? I would love to. Im a huge fan of all his new music; its incredible to me and the visuals too.

Mikes debut album 31 Minutes to Takeoff is getting a lot of attention right now. So whats Mikes favourite track on the album? "Man I hate that question as all my songs are all my babies. But if I had to pick one it would be Saviour Goodbye as it sounds like nothing Ive ever heard before, which Im really proud of. Mike also co-wrote the track Bow Chicka Wow Wow with Bruno Mars. Bruno and I were hanging in studio and the song started as a joke, and had a more inappropriate title so we changed it up and it made it on the album. Id love to work with Bruno again - hes an amazing singer, musician and producer and writes seriously good melodies.
"Cooler than Me" is one the biggest songs in the world right now and Mike admits his life has radically changed since he was a student writing songs. Its totally surreal, I recorded that song on a cheap microphone in a student dorm. Its crazy but Im loving the reaction.  Mike also confessed to us that he got to catch up with Katy Perry at the EMAs and I saw Rihanna in a club in Vegas a month ago.

But who does he want to work with? "Man, for me its all about Natalie Portman. Shes an actress but shes on the top of all my lists. I would like to woo her over a long process and then marry her. Man, I write something to her on twitter every hour but its got me nowhere. I think persistence will be the key in this one. The Detroit star confirmed that he is currently single and told us "when I meet the right girl, Ill just know."

Mike's got a busy week in London this week promoting Cooler than Me but also plans to a day in a London studio working on new tracks. He also admitted to us that hes a massive fan of Tinie Tempah. So does he thinks Tinie can crack America? I really hope so man. Its a really tough thing for a hip hop artist to come from the UK to the US, but I am a huge fan of Tinies so I hope he can do it. Im actually a huge fan of his album and Ive been listening to it non-stop for the past few weeks

Mikes album 31 Minutes to Takeoff is out now.
