Ben Haenow wants to crack America.
The 'X Factor' winner is hoping to make it big in the USA and believes his new single 'Second Hand Heart' with Kelly Clarkson - released on Friday (16.10.15) - will help him to do so because she is so well known in the States.
Asked if he thinks he can break into the US market, he exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''I'd like to think so. I think we've got a great start with Kelly being on board.''
But the 30-year-old singer - whose eponymous debut album will be released on November 13 - confessed the track wasn't originally intended to be a duet and only turned into one when he returned to the UK after working on the track abroad.
He admitted: ''It wasn't supposed to be a duet. We got back to the UK after recording it and Sonny, the head of the label, was kind of like, how do you feel about it being a duet?
''But I asked who he was thinking and he said Kelly Clarkson, so I toyed with the idea. But as soon as we got the track back with the vocals on it, for me that was it, it just sold it. It brought a new perspective to the song instead of it just being one.''
