Rapper Jay-Z has complimented Susan Boyle on her huge success and told her that the fashion world would be at her feet were she to launch her own clothing label.

“What Susan’s achieved is unbelievable. Everybody wants a piece of her and the market for her is huge. I could see her with her own clothing range. Sure, why not?”

The celebrated hip-hop artist went on to say that the singer offered inspiration to others to never give up on their dreams.

“She’ll appeal to women of a certain age. They’ll see an ordinary person who made the best of herself. It’ll give them hope.”
