With his third studio album, entitled Right Place, Right Time to drop in a few months, singer Olly Murs elaborated on how he came to record his eagerly-anticipated new single 'Troublemaker,' with American rapper Flo Rida.
The former X Factor star, who announced the hook-up with the 'Whistle' hitmaker last week on his official Twitter page, was recently in the States shooting the visuals for the collab, and told MTV News:
''It's exciting really to come out with a new record and obviously 'Heart Skips A Beat' is what we're promoting at the moment, but obviously to get the video sorted for 'Troublemaker' is what we wanted to get done as soon as we came to America,'' revealed the Essex lad, before discussing how he managed to rope in the 32-year-old rap star on the track.
''So, getting Flo Rida on the record was kind of easy, in a way. (It) wasn't hard,'' Murs confessed.
''I was expecting it to be a lot harder than it was. We just literally sent him the track, his people the track and they heard it and really liked it. And Flo Rida was like 'I really want to do it.' So he was up for doing it,'' he shared, noting that after a few days, ''it came back and it sounded amazing. I just think the way the song is and when people hear it, they'll understand why Flo Rida is such a perfect person to sing the song and get his vibe on it. So, it’s exciting.''
