Coyle dreams of duet with 'Crazy' hitmaker

Nadine Coyle wants to write a song for, and duet with, Cee Lo Green.

The 'Red Light' singer said she loves the voice of soul singer Cee Lo - who is one half of 'Crazy' hitmakers Gnarls Barkley - and would love to star on a track with him.

Coyle said: "Do you know who I love? Cee Lo Green, I'd love to sing with him on a song that I wrote.

"Although it'd would hopefully not feature as much profanity as his recent song. But he just has a voice that really captures me."

Nadine also said she didn't consciously make her track 'Insatiable' - her debut single - with 80s styling, although it has been said it bears resemblance to a song from that era.

She added: "I didn't pick the 80s at all. I was born in the 80s, so it's not a particular time that I even remember well!

"Why I think people are saying 80s is because it's got the live instruments on it, live drum kit, live brass, live lead guitar, live pianos, all that stuff, so it's got that older feel.

"The 80s to me feels like a Cyndi Lauper and stuff like that. I didn't ever intend to go 80s."

Coyle's debut solo single 'Insatiable' is released on November 1, and her album of the same name will follow on November 8.
