The boyband have admitted that they would like to record a track with the Bajan star, in the vein of her team-up with Coldplay on their new single 'Princess Of China'.
"I think Rihanna would be a really good one for us. I think the one she did with Coldplay, 'Princess Of China', was so good and really brought a different side to Coldplay which I really, really liked," Tom Parker told Capital FM.
"So maybe she can bring a little Barbadian… maybe she can bring that Bajan side to The Wanted."
The group recently confessed that they have found their recent US success "shocking", but maintained that they have not fully cracked the American music market yet.
Having also recently caused controversy by saying they were forced to face a wall while Britney Spears passed them, they have now stated that the 'Womanizer' singer was not "a cow".
