Boyband star Ortisé Williams revealed to reporters that himself and the rest of the group - who were the runners up on The X Factor in 2008 - are hoping to work with the star.
Ortisé said: "We are in talks to collaborate with Rihanna. Let's see what happens there. We hope so. I tried to chat her up.
He added: "But she's popular, very popular when she comes to England."
