The 22-year-old star - who shot to fame with his UK top five single 'Can't Say No' - has worked with a number of artists including Ne-Yo but insists Mayer is at the top of his list of people he'd like to make music with.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''If I got to do a track with John Mayer, that would be my favourite person to work with. I think he's someone that people wouldn't expect.''
The 'Turn Around' singer is proud of the names he's had feature on his tracks so far though.
Speaking about his new album, he shared: ''I've been able to work with some amazing people on there. I've got Labyrinth on the new single 'Royalty'. Craig David did some stuff with me.''
The star had been a long time fan of both stars but was intimidated when first meeting Craig.
He explained: ''When I first met him I thought, 'Is he going to sing or beat me up?' His body is crazy, which is mad because he parties really hard as well.''
The 'Vegas Girl' singer added: ''There are no kind of set in stone collaborations. My first album was a lot but with this I kind of want to step back from that and make it more about myself.''
