Singer Ryan Follesé on the five artists, alive or dead, he'd most like to work with.
Last month, Nashville pop-rock upstarts Hot Chelle Rae premiered their new single "Hung Up," the first look at the follow-up to their 2011 sophomore album "Whatever." Frontman Ryan Follesé also told Billboard that the group recently re-recorded the Hall & Oates classic "You Make My Dreams" with John Oates, in a collaboration that will be released later this year.
"I have known John since I was a kid, and I asked him, 'If this is okay with you, we want to record your song and I'd love you to be a part of it,'" recalls Follesé. "He came back in and sang all the original background, brought the guitar he used on the song, and we rearranged it, just slightly, with him. It was really cool, because whenever you're changing something on such a classic song, you never know if you will get disapproval. And we did it with him, and he helped us reshape a classic song."
