Peter Andre has revealed his dream musician to collaborate with is legendary rapper Snoop Dogg
Peter Andre wants to collaborate with Snoop Dogg.
The singer may be best known for his safe pop tunes but he thinks teaming up with the 'Drop It Like It's Hot' rapper would make for a very "different" sound than his fans are used to.
Asked who he'd most like to work with, he said: "Good question. Someone like Snoop Dogg. It would be different."
It could be possible that Snoop, 46, is interested in making a hit with Pete because he just laid down some bars for Olly Murs' latest single 'Moves' in an unexpected collaboration.
Pete, 45, is heading out on tour in 2019 to celebrate 25 years of musical success and he admitted it can be annoying that some people still think of him as a one-hit wonder who is only famous for his 1995 single 'Mysterious Girl' – which was also re-released in 2004 and became a number one in the UK singles chart, doing better than its original number two placing.
Speaking to New! magazine, he said: "There are people that will always think you've only ever done one song and usually artists are remembered for one song, but I had number ones before 'Mysterious Girl' in 2004 and I've had quite a few number one albums and singles since.
"[Being called a one-hit wonder] never angers me, it's just laziness on their part. How can I sell out Wembley and The O2 Arena on one song? It's just ignorance but I don't get offended."
The 'Behind Closed Doors' singer is proud of his career success but thinks he would have been even bigger if he'd taken on board some of the advice he was offered in the early days.
Asked what he'd advise his younger self, he said: "To listen more. There was some advice on styling and song choices I ignored, which could have taken me to stadiums rather than arenas. Then again, I'm still here doing what I love 25 years later."
And Peter admitted he regrets his 2004 single 'Insania', which he wrote in the jungle whilst competing on reality TV show 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!', the programme on which he met his first wife Katie Price.
He said: "I should have left 'Insania' in the jungle. It charted at number three but it wasn't my proudest achievement."
