Honey G has revealed she is desperate to work with US hip-hop superstar, Missy Elliott, on a song despite her debut single flopping
Honey G is desperate to collaborate with Missy Elliott.
The 'X Factor' rapper - who finished fifth in the competition on the most recent series - has set her sights on working on a track with the 'Work It' hitmaker, 45, as she's desperate to claw her way back from her disastrous debut single 'The Honey G Show', which failed to reach the top 100 in the UK chart after its release last month.
She said: "I really want to start collaborating with some US hip-hop artists like Missy Elliott."
And the 35-year-old star - whose real name is Anna Gilford - is aiming high with her wish list of artists to duet with as she also wants to work with the likes of 'Encore' rapper Jay Z and 'No One' songstress Alicia Keys.
Asked who else she wants to team up with, she told the Daily Star newspaper: "Jay Z, Chance and Lil' Wayne, Timbaland, Alicia Keys and Mary J Blige.
"I really see collaborating with a US hip-hop artist as the next step."
And, although her future music career is up in the air at the moment, Honey has ruled out going on any other reality TV shows to get herself out there as she fears it will ruin her "street cred".
She said: "It's not going to be good for my street cred, my reputation.
"I want to perform globally, release and sell millions of records, and reality TV is not for me, I'm afraid.
"'Big Brother', or the jungle, it's not for me."
Despite being the first act from the singing show to nab a record deal with Simon Cowell's label Syco, it seems her single may make her a one-hit wonder as she's yet to speak to bosses at the firm about creating a whole LP early next year.
She previously admitted: "It's the kind of thing that I'd like to do to negotiate an album deal with Syco."
