Zarif 'grateful' for Beyoncé tour support
Zarif has thanked Beyoncé for giving her a support slot on the UK leg of her 'I Am...' world tour.

The 'Let Me Back' singer admitted that she had improved her own performance from the experience.

"I learned so much from Beyoncé watching her set every night to pick up tips," she told the Daily Star.

The North Londoner has previously been compared to Amy Winehouse, but insisted that her own sound is more "upbeat".

"People are always going to try and find a comparison. I think our music's actually very different," she told DS.

"Obviously we're both kind of retro, but mine's a lot more upbeat and eclectic whereas hers is more influenced by Motown. I can definitely see the similarities but I think at the same time that we do different things."

Zarifa releases new single 'Over' on June 29.
