Music: I'm listening to lots of Freddie Mercury at the moment. My dad always played Queen when we were growing up, so he is a huge inspiration to me. His voice is killer. I'm also listening to Michael Bublé. I love his voice, the melodies, the way he writes music; he is a true talent. People will be surprised by what influences N-Dubz! Whilst we were in the studio we were listening to a lot of Phil Collins. Every song on his 'Hits' album is a classic, the man is a genius. We're not bothered about what people may think is cool – I just love good songs.
