EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Conor Maynard Rejects Justin Bieber Comparison

Conor Maynard has brushed off comparisons between himself and Canadian teen idol Justin Bieber.

Speaking to Entertainmentwise at today's Silver Clef awards in London, he urged people to hear his music before weighing him up against the 'Boyfriend' star.

"I think for me, comparisons come really early in someone's career... I prefer people to hear my music and then make their own opinions on what they think it is.

He continued: "I think that comparison goes as far as we're young and we both came from YouTube. I think when people hear the final album [they'll] hear the difference in the music.

"I'm British, I'm slightly older than he is, so there's some differences there."

Watch our video chat with Conor - in which he also discusses working with Pharrell - in the above clip.

Conor releases his album Contrast on July 30, one week after new single 'Vegas Girl' on July 22.
