However, the 'Call My Name' star dismissed the claims, saying that they are a "compliment".

"If you think my live vocal sounds so good it must be mimed, I'm happy," she told BBC News. "I take it as a compliment."

Cole will release her third studio album A Million Lights later this year, and she revealed that she is very proud of the LP overall.

"It's been a long time coming," she said. "But I think it's the best work I've done."

Although she only co-wrote two of the 11 songs on the album, she added that she would only sing tracks that mean something to her.

"You have to connect with something you're singing about," she said. "I'm not going to sing about a subject I've not got any feeling for."

Talking about choosing which songs to include on an album, she added: "Every record I've made, there are songs I've written that I haven't put out because... well, I don't want to. I write for my own pleasure sometimes.

"I get sent a lot of tracks where there'll just be a beat, or a chorus.

"Sometimes I think, 'That chorus is amazing', and I'll write a verse to it, or someone else will write a verse to it."

'Call My Name' will be released on June 9, followed by A Million Lights on June 18.
