Example is in talks to collaborate with Sir Elton John.

The 'Kickstarts' himaker, who has cemented his transition from rapping to singing with his fifth album 'Live Life Living' wants to team with the 'Rocket Man' star to work on a new track together.

Speaking to DJ Neev at the KISS FM UK secret gig in London, Example said: "I've recently collaborated with The Klaxons, Wretch 32, Sigma and Angel Haze and I'm chatting to Elton John about a potential collaboration.

"I'm too busy to think about who I could work with, people just get in touch and I do it if I find them interesting".

The singer, real name Elliot Gleave, has been touring constantly and visited 42 countries in the past two years.

And he insists seeing the world through his music is "the most beautiful thing."

He said: "Growing up in the 90s and 00s you hear about all of these countries, perhaps because there is a war on and you see it in the news.

"Then you perform in Latvia or something and the people are wicked, you really build a picture of what the place is like."

Meanwhile, the star also slammed rapper Pitbull for tweeting a sarcastic photograph mocking him.

He said: "I don't know what Pitbull stands for, I wouldn't say he's a threat to anyone other than a threat to fashion. "I can't stand it..what he represents. He is dressing like he's in Miami, but there is no place in the world for those white trousers."
