Adele: ‘I want to collaborate with Beyonce’

'21' singer admits she's always been a massive fan of the star

Adele has said she’d love to team up with Beyonce.

The singer, who reportedly pulled out of a duet with the star at last year’sGlastonbury festival, told French radio station NRJ she is still keen to collaborate.

She added: “I adore Beyonce, I’ve been listening to her since I was about 11. I think her work as an artist and a singer is enviable in terms of the length of her career and how she’s grown and grown, but most of my inspirations are [from] old music and sadly they have all died.”

The songstress also previously said that she will put out a new track by the end of 2012, but reiterated previous claims that the follow-up to her monster-selling album ’21’ will not be released for at least another two years.

Last month her LP, overtook Dire Straits’ ‘Brothers In Arms’ to become the sixth biggest selling album of all time in the UK. It has now sold 4.15 millions copies in the UK, meaning the equivalent of one in six of the country’s households now own a copy the album.
