MC@Play with Rebecca Ferguson

The U.K. chart-topper spills on her first-job mishaps, go-to guilty pleasures, and the Aretha Franklin comparisons.

The soulful British star-on-the-rise may belt out a must-hear debut single titled, "Nothing Real But Love," but we think her musical talent is as real as it gets, too. And we're not the only ones who think so: Fans have already taken her to new heights, all the way up to the No. 3 spot on the U.K. album charts, and have made her debut album, Heaven, go platinum. Which makes Ferguson kind of a big deal, and has us begging for an Adele duet.

Lucky for us MCers, we get to feast our ears on not only the modern-day Aretha Franklin's vocals in the video below, but our very own Sergio Kletnoy also got the scoop on everything from her first-job mishaps, Nutella obsession, and the behind-the-scenes details on writing her album ballads.

If you like what you hear below, then hit-up your local record store and snag a copy of the album that's already making major waves across the pond.
