Elliot John Gleave, better known by his stage name Example, is a
British singer and rapper.
His name arose due to his initials being 'E.G.,' which is an abbreviation
of the Latin phrase 'exempli gratia,' which means 'for example.'
He has just revealed the names of some artists he admires.
The songwriter mentioned that he'd like to collaborate again with Calvin Harris.
He said that their previous duet, We'll Be Coming Back, was "great fun" but thinks Harris is too busy these days to have time to record another track.
"It would be great to do another track with Calvin," he told the Vodafone Big Top 40. "The last time we recorded a song together he was just on his way up, and now he's one of the biggest artists in the world.
"Whether or not I'm even on his radar anymore… why would you work with me if you could work with Rihanna?"
Example also revealed that he has been contact with Elton about teaming up on a song, explaining: "It's a shame we didn't make it happen for this album, but even if he laid down some piano chords, I could sang over it and turn it into a club track."
The young man releases his new single One More Day (Stay With Me) on June 22. His album Live Life Living follows on June 30.
