Wiley, who worked with the oft-ignored singer of songs back in 2005, told ‑YOU KNOW IT! — the Daily Star Playlist: "I never thought Emeli would be a star in the UK. I thought she’d have to make it big in the US first."
Buy why, Wiley?
"Ten years ago you’d never have had someone as unusual as Emeli winning The X Factor, so I thought she’d struggle as she’s aimed at a similar market," he mused.
'Someone as unusual'.
"But the star-making system has changed, and that’s all good," he added.
Apparently Emeli appears on Wiley's new album, on a song called 'My Heart'. So there we go. Finally, she gets some exposure.
