Charli XCX has made it her ambition to collaborate with one or all of the Spice Girls in the future
Charli XCX is desperate to work with the Spice Girls.
The 24-year-old singer/songwriter is getting ready to release her hotly anticipated third album in May and would have loved to have got any member of the girl group on the LP.
Although a collaboration didn't happen for her new record, Charli is determined to get Baby Spice Emma Bunton, Scary Spice Mel B, Posh Spice Victoria Beckham, Sporty Spice Mel C or Ginger Spice Geri Horner on her next album.
She is quoted by the Daily Star newspaper as saying: "I wish the Spice Girls were on this album. Maybe Mel B could be on the next album? Or Baby Spice?"
Charli has made no secret that she is a big Spice Girls fan, while her favourite artist is Britney Spears.
The 'After The Afterparty' hitmaker insists the pure pop vibe of those acts has influenced her upcoming "party" album - which features SOPHIE, Stargate and American rapper Lil Yachty on the follow-up to 2014's 'Sucker'.
She previously said: "On my previous record, I was really annoyed at the music industry and felt like I had something to prove. After that, I didn't feel I had anything to prove anymore. Also one of my favourite hobbies is partying, and I realised that I never actually made a party album. I never made an album that I would want to hear at a club.
"It was very indulgent in that sense because I just wanted to make an album that I could get f***ed up to. It's the soundtrack to might nights."
