Chase & Status 'snubbed Rihanna collab'

By
Chase & Status 'Blind Faith'
Chase & Status have revealed that they turned down the chance to work with Rihanna on their new album.

The duo, made up of Sean Milton and Will Kennard, said they rejected a number of collaboration offers from Jay-Z's Roc Nation label because they wanted the record sound British.

"There was talk about working with Rihanna and other names linked to Roc Nation but we weren't tempted," Milton told the Daily Star.

"We wanted the album to showcase fresh and cutting-edge UK talent. We're known for working with new artists such as Plan B and that's what really excites us."

Discussing their forthcoming sophomore LP No More Idols, he explained: "On the album we've worked with Clare Maguire - who just has this amazing voice and will appeal to everyone - Mali, Delilah and Tempa T, all of whom are wicked. We've also got tunes on there with White Lies and Tinie Tempah.

"Tinie is like your archetypal English gent but the track we've got him on is quite raw."

The 'End Credits' group also admitted that they were looking forward to attending this year's Brit Awards, adding: "We'll get to hang out with Rihanna and co. It's going to be a good night."
