You remember the adorable British pop star, Olly Murs, from when we featured him as our Hottie of the Day, right? Well today is an even bigger day for Olly, considering his album, "Right Place, Right Time," comes out in the US. Woohoo!
Our fave song from the album is definitely "Troublemaker" featuring Flo Rida, but since Olly has tons of famous BFFs (British and non), we figured his next album could use a little help from his friends. See who we (and one of Olly's HUGE fans from the UK!) think Olly should collaborate with next and why, and tell us if you agree with us in the comments below!
1. One Direction. Come on now. This is an obvious one. 1D and Olly are on the same record label (Sony), both come from the UK, have toured together and are friends in real life. They've even performed together! But next time, let's make this bromance happen in the recording studio, dudes!
2. Taylor Swift. From the looks of this Instagram pic it looks like Olly kinda really sorta wants a Grammy, and Ms. Swift is pretty good at winning those. This song is just begging to be written and recorded. Don'tcha think?
3. Michael Buble. Alex, who's the editor of a huge Olly Tumblr site, Olly Murs Daily, told us exclusively that he wants to see Olly work with Michael in the future. He said:
"Olly's obviously collaborated with a lot of cool people – Madness, Gary Barlow, Rizzle Kicks – but I personally would love to see him do something with Michael Buble one day in the future. Michael's a big champion of Olly's (I'm sure he'll tell you the story about when he ran into him on holiday in Barbados a few years ago if you're meeting him or have met him) and I'd love to see them do maybe like a nice swing number or ballad."
4. Debby Ryan. Clearly we are obsessed with Debby after our Google+ hangout with her, and we hear that Debby and Olly are fans of each others'. Maybe they can make a song together and then he can perform it on her show, Jessie? Dream big, kids.
5. Drake. Drizzy Drake has songs with pretty much everyone ever (Justin Bieber, Eminem, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna…we could keep going), so we think his next project should be a song with Olly. Fun fact—Drake wrote Rita Ora's song, "RIP," and Rita and Olly have the same management, so this is totally not far-fetched at all.
