The Black Eyed Peas rapper – who manages Cheryl – is persuading the Toxic singer to record a track with the British star as he thinks the results would be ”dope”.

He told The Sun: ”Britney would be great with Cheryl. When I’m recording with Britney I’ve four songs of Cheryl sitting there.”

will.i.am – who has worked with Cheryl since her debut solo album, 3 Words – has also spoken to R&B singer Rihanna about another possible duet.

He added: ”I told Rihanna there was this girl called Cheryl Cole and she is the pop princess of England. I was telling people in America they should collaborate. Hopefully it will happen soon.”

Cheryl and will.i.am have appeared on each other’s solo records in the past; with her featuring on his singles HeartBreaker and Check It Out, and him lending vocals to her 2009 track 3 Words.

The Girls Aloud singer also rapped on a track produced by will.i.am which never made the final cut of her new album A Million Lights.

She joked: ”He still has a copy of it. I think I inspire him. I think you’ll find on his next record I inspired him with my rap masterpiece.”
