Katy B wants to collaborate with Alicia Keys

Katy B would love to hook up with Alicia Keys.

The Broken Record star says Alicia's had a massive influence on her career and can't wait to see Alicia when she performs in London later this year.

Alicia is celebrating a decade since the release of 'Songs in a Minor' by performing at the Royal Albert Hall.

Katy said: "My dream collaboration would be Alicia Keyes because she's so good. When I was 13 I wanted to be her. I can't believe it's been 10 years since she released 'Songs in A Minor'. I'd love to do something with her. Call me Alicia!"

Katy, told BANG Showbiz: "I'm a mixture of all the UK underground genres, I'm not just dubstep, in my music there are hardcore samples, breaks, house. I started off listening to a lot of Alicia Keys and Destiny's Child but then as I got older I started listening to more of the neo soul kind of things like Jill Scott. The way Jill Scott writes is she writes about really simple things but she does it really beautifully and that influenced me to make my lyrics a bit more interesting."
