Wyclef Jean says he "stalked" Emeli Sandé for collaboration

Wyclef Jean has opened up about his admiration of singer Emeli Sandé, and confessed that he was desperate for her to join him on new record 'Carnival Vol. III: Road to Clefication'. 

He told XXL magazine that she has an inimitable talent and he considers her as one of his favourite vocalists: "Emeli Sande is one of my favourite singers in the world. I stalked Emeli Sande. We started actually working at Puffy's studio, Bad Boy and then after that we went to my studio."

"I think John Lennon had 'Imagine' and I think Wyclef and Emeli Sande got 'Carry On'. Emeli as a writer is one of the best I've ever worked with hands down. And trading bars and trading rhymes was amazing. Her melody schemes are just incredible."
