Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine has always talked about how much she loves rapper Kanye West and how he has been a musical inspiration to her. Well, it seems as if this musical appreciation goes both ways!
Last night Florence + The Machine filmed an episode for MTV’s Unplugged series in New York City, and Kanye West was sitting right in the front row to enjoy and support her performance! Kanye has come out to support Florence before, showing up to some of her shows. Last year Florence also spoke about how she would love to collaborate with Kanye and how the two have been emailing to try and make it work. She said she would love to have him help finish an “epic, goth, hip-hop song” that she had been working on with her keyboard player.
This collaboration didn’t quite happen, but the two did work together on a song, which Florence performed last night and gave a shout out and thank you to Kanye.
I’m waiting for that “epic, goth, hip-hop song” to come! I think it would be awesome!
