Sir Tom Jones wants to collaborate with EminemJuly 30th, 2010 - 6:04 pm ICT by ANI
London, July 30 (ANI): Sir Tom Jones has expressed his desire to work with rapper Eminem.
The Welsh crooner’s new record ‘Praise & Blame’ is already sitting in the top spot in the UK album charts mid-weeks, and is set to prevent the Detroit rapper’s Recovery from nabbing a fifth week at the top.
“I couldn’t be more proud of this album and I’m really blown away by the response from everyone - it’s great to be top of the charts with Eminem, maybe next time we could be top together,” the Mirror quoted him as saying in a statement.
If the 70-year-old succeeds, he would steal the crown from Bob Dylan, whose last album went to No 1 in the UK in 2009, at the age of 67.
In Praise & Blame, his biggest success since 1999’s Reload, Sir Tom - who is entering his sixth decade in music - covers classics by artists like Bob Dylan and John Lee Hooker. (ANI)
