Rihanna has revealed she will record a single with JLS this year.
The Umbrella singer - who performed her hit single with the band live on The X Factor 2008 semi-final - told The Sun her manager Jay-Z is keen to work with Aston Merrygold, Marvin Humes, Oritse Williams and JB Gill, and she believes Beyonce and Kanye West will collaborate with them too.
Rihanna said: "Working with JLS is something that will happen this year - Jay will make stars out of them."
She went on: "He has been a great mentor to me. He has been around long enough to spot real talent and he knows who will become worldwide stars.
"They can sing, they can dance, they look good - actually they look very good.
"But more importantly they look like a group. It doesn't look like they have been put together. It looks like they are meant to be together.
"I will be working with them on one of their singles and am sure Kanye [West] and Bey [Beyonce Knowles] will collaborate with them on tracks as well.
"America has only had a little taste of them so far, but give it probably as little as 18 months and they could be the most famous band in the world.
"There is nothing Jay doesn't know about the music business. Under his management I think JLS will probably be the biggest."
