The Wanted is in talks to tour the US with Chris Brown this summer.

The group revealed that they have spoken to the singer about joining him for the North American leg of his tour in July.

Siva Kaneswaran, Tom Parker, Max George, Jay McGuiness and Nathan Sykes hope the exposure will introduce them to the urban market.

Max told radio station Capital FM: ''Scooter - our manager - told us the other week that they'd spoke. We met Chris Brown - he came in and saw us at the studio when we were rehearsing - and he was actually really sound.

''He said he liked our music and stuff. He'd spoke to Scooter since then and said he'd love to do a song with us so who knows? If it's the right song then we'll do it.''

Tom added: ''There's talk about us, he's got his American tour coming up in July, maybe we'll go on that for a few shows which will be cool. Hitting that urban market - The Wanted go urban.''
