Igle­sias thought Matt Terry was Span­ish

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

En­rique Igle­sias thought Matt Terry was Span­ish when he first heard his vo­cals. The 'X Fac­tor' win­ner re­cently worked with the hunk on a remix of his smash hit 'S’beme La Ra­dio' along­side Sean Paul - who fea­tures on the orig­i­nal - but, al­though he was born and raised in Brom­ley, East Lon­don, his ac­cent was con­vinc­ing. Speak­ing to the Daily Star news­pa­per, En­rique said: "When I heard Matt sing in Span­ish it's crazy. You wouldn't know he was English. He doesn't have an ac­cent. You can tell when he was singing he has that Span­ish in him." While Matt has kept a rel­a­tively low pro­file since he won the show, En­rique couldn't wait to work with him af­ter he watched him storm to vic­tory on the pro­gram. He ex­plained: "I knew who he was be­cause of 'X Fac­tor' of course. I watch a lot of those shows. We thought it would be cool. He has his fan base. "What I nor­mally like to do in these col­lab­o­ra­tions is just try it out. Artists need to feel com­fort­able singing the songs. I have done col­lab­o­ra­tions be­fore and a lot of times they don't turn out how you ex­pect them to." Matt, 24, has been spend­ing the last few months across the pond work­ing on new mu­sic and the 'Hero' hit­maker has ad­mit­ted he's will­ing to of­fer a help­ing hand. En­rique ex­plained: "I def­i­nitely want to help, for sure. Once I col­lab­o­rate with some­one and the vibe is good you keep go­ing. "And even if this once hadn't worked, I would still trey and try un­til we got it right." And En­rique hasn't ruled out work­ing with other 'X Fac­tor' fi­nal­ists in the fu­ture. He added: "It's tough to be an artist and get signed to a record com­pany these days,. To me, whether you're on 'X Fac­tor' or be­cause you walk into the Song build­ing, it's not any dif­fer­ent."
