A chat to the band about Barbados, Rihanna and their growing fame

With their debut single Lick Ya Down storming into the Top 10 last year, new single Twilight hitting the No 1 spot and their first album out later in the year, Monkey from Orange couldn't say no to a chat with the Bajan band about their growing success.

When asked about how their Caribbean heritage had influenced their music, Cover Drive said "Hopefully it transports everyone to a white sandy beach in the tropics on a cold winter day!" Yes please!

Well known for their YouTube covers, the band talk about who they'd like to cover in 2012 and who they'd like to cover them. When they toured with Rihanna last year, the star offered them some career advice. It was obviously a brilliant opportunity for the group and when asked about the experience they said that it was "Amazing!! Incredible! Life changing!! We love her and thank her for the massive opportunity!!"

Check out the full interview with Monkey from Orange as they talk about the boys' celebrity crush, Nando's, musical guilty pleasures and their plans for this year.
