Plan B "kind of hates" his track 'She Said', even though it is one of his biggest hits, because it is such a catchy pop song

Plan B "kind of hates" one of his biggest hits.

The rapper and singer didn't realise the track 'She Said' from his 2010 album 'The Defamation of Strickland Banks' would become so popular, and used by many people as an audition track when they appeared on TV talent show 'The X Factor'.

He told Q magazine: "When I wrote it, I thought it was a cool album track, but the more I heard it, the more I thought, 'You ****! You made a complete pop song!

"I'm proud of it, because that song has changed my life, but I do kind of hate it in a way as well."

Plan B, real name Ben Drew, traded his neo-soul direction for rap with his next album, 'iLL Manors', which was accompanied by a film of the same name - and he counts it as his biggest achievement of 2012.

He said: "[My greatest achievement of 2012 was] to have my first feature film in cinemas. It was so difficult making it. Not many people can say they've done that in their lives."

Known to the world as Plan B, Ben Drew burst into the limelight from the streets of East London. Originally making a name for himself as a hip hop artist, his first album, Who Needs Actions When You Got Words, utilised a direct, confrontational approach to tell hard-hitting stories of contemporary urban issues.
