Sleigh Bells have said that they like to think Beyonce and Jay-Z play their records to their baby daughter Blue Ivy.

The US duo teamed up with Beyonce for a collaboration last year after the pop megastar was impressed by their track 'Kids' but the project, which was put together by producer Diplo, has never been released.

However, guitarist Derek Miller told NME that he hadn't given up hope of working with the singer in the future.

"Obviously we're massive fans of her and she's a living legend," he said. "I'd love to actually work with her someday when I actually get some creative input. I wouldn't say that it [the project] failed, it just feels like it never really happened."

His band mate, singer Alexis Krauss, added:

I like to think we're on her radar. I like to think her and Jay Z are playing Sleigh Bells to Blue Ivy.


Sleigh Bells release their new album 'Reign Of Terror' on February 21. To read an interview with the band in which they discuss their plans for the new LP and why it's their heaviest offering yet, pick up the new issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands now or available digitally.
