Ne-Yo is being eyed for a collaboration with English-Irish girl group The Saturdays.
The English-Irish quintet has already worked with Flo Rida on 2010 single Higher and Sean Paul on their new single What About Us.
But there is one R&B crooner Una Healy, Rochelle Humes, Mollie King, Frankie Sandford and Vanessa White are dying to work with.
“We’ve always said Ne-Yo! I love his song with Conor Maynard,” Frankie told MTV News, referring to their collaboration last year on Conor’s hit single Turn Around.
The ladies did not say whether or not they had reached out to Ne-Yo.
The 33-year-old singer-songwriter is known for working with a number of pop acts. He jumpstarted his career writing songs for the likes of Christina Milian, Mary J. Blige, Faith Evans and Musiq, among others.
The Saturdays said they would like to venture outside the box on their next record.
The ladies are also eyeing up Swedish record producer Avicii. The DJ is famous for his mainstream hit Levels, which features a vocal sample from Etta James’ Something’s Got a Hold on Me.
“Yeah that would be a really cool collaboration,” Frankie said. “He does some proper anthems, so that would be fun.”
The girl group is currently striving for crossover success in the US.
They currently star in E!’s Chasing The Saturdays, which documents Una, Rochelle, Mollie, Frankie and Vanessa trying to make it in America.
