We never know whether Example is being serious or not, so we’ll remain sceptical about this claim that he intends to write for boy band sensations One Direction; at least until we know if his tongue was in his cheek or not.
The rapper-turned-singer, who releases his new single Say Nothing next month, was explaining the way he works in the studio, and told reporters:
“I always go in with a song title and a concept, then after the song’s done I’ll go, ‘Yeah, that sounds like The Wanted’, or ‘Why don’t we pitch that to Kylie?’ or ‘Why don’t we pitch that to Enrique Iglesias?’
“I’d like to get a song on Enrique’s album. I’d like to write a song for One Direction. I’m not really adverse to who sings my songs.”
