Kanye to hook up with Bassey?

Dame Shirley Bassey has her heart set on a duet with rapping giant Kanye West.

Bassey, who returned into the public eye with a show-stealing performance at 2007’s Glastonbury, wants the ‘Stronger’ star to feature on an upcoming duets album.

A source told the Daily Star: “She had a brilliant year. Her performance at Glastonbury went down better than anyone had expected.

“She wants to do a duets record and it depends on when her schedule coincides with Kanye.”

The pair’s worlds famously collided in 2005 when West sampled Bassey’s ‘Diamonds Are Forever’ for his tune, ‘Diamonds From Sierra Leone’.

According to the tabloid, Bassey has also set her sights on collaborations with Arctic Monkeys and Sugababes.

Harry Lillis “Bing” Crosby (1903 – 1977) was a singer and Academy Award-winning actor whose career started in 1926.

One of the first multimedia stars, from 1934 to 1954 Bing Crosby held a nearly unrivalled command of record sales, radio ratings, and motion picture grosses.

He is among the most popular musical acts in history and is currently the most electronically recorded human voice.

Crosby is also credited as being the major inspiration for most of the male singers of the era that followed him, including Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, and Dean Martin.

In 1962, Crosby was the first person to receive the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
