Emeli Sande has revealed she would like to work with Kanye West.

The Brit-winning Scottish songstress admitted she would also jump at the opportunity to sing with US singer-songwriter Tracy Chapman and former Fugees singer Lauryn Hill at a MasterCard Priceless gig in London.

"To name a few, I would love to collaborate with Lauryn Hill, Tracy Chapman, and Kanye West," she said.

Emeli, who performed an acoustic set including her hits Next To Me and Heaven for 60 competition winners at St James Theatre, added: "The dream song I wish I wrote and recorded would be Fast Car by Tracy Chapman."

The 26-year-old has been working on her second album, the follow-up to her phenomenally successful Our Version Of Events. The new record will include tracks featuring chart-topping group Rudimental.

"They've been great to work with. There will be two tracks coming up on the next album but you'll have to wait and see," she said.

The singer hasn't decided on a release date for the album yet, saying: "That's what I would like to know also. I'm waiting for the inspiration and the time to really focus."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

A friend will tell you about a job opening at their company. This lead will turn into a dead end. Don't set your hopes on this possibility. Instead of looking for another job, concentrate on fulfilling your duties. Tempers are running high. The last thing you want is to catch the attention of an irritable superior. If someone does criticise your work, remain silent. These remarks may be terribly unfair, but defending yourself will only make the situation worse. Breathe deep. This, too, shall pass.More
