2012 X Factor contestant Nathaniel Willemse today (27/4/15) released his latest single 'flava'.
After finishing off 2014 with a platinum selling single‘Live Louder’ which was also in the ARIA Top 5 Nathaniel gave us a 'flava' of what we can expect from him in 2015 including a debut studio album, set for release later this year.
Flava is now available for purchase on iTunes.
We had the opportunity to ask Nathaniel some questions, find out what he had to say below.
1. What was the inspiration behind your new song flava?
I wanted to do something upbeat and up-tempo again. We had a concept surrounding the idea and title ‘Flava’. The track involves a little story telling which explains individuality, personality and the spice of life.
2. Tell us a little bit about what went in to the creation of your latest release... 3. What was it like performing with Mariah Carey on her tour?
One night I was with my music team that I always write with called DNA and another called Louie Shaw, we were singing, dancing having a good time basically jamming in the studio. We knew we wanted to do a song with a Ukulele and we had a concept, so basically ‘Flava” was born out of having fun and jamming in the studio.
3. What was it like performing with Mariah Carey on her tour?
It was incredible to perform with Mariah Carey on her tour; I learnt so much and had the opportunity to sing with her, it was a massive highlight of my career so far.
4. If you could claim any album as your own whose would it be and why?
Stevie Wonder ‘Envisions- its genius and a massive inspiration.
5. The last song you listened to...
Ed Sheeran “thinking out loud”
6. If you could collaborate with any artist, who would it be and why?
