Natasha Bedingfield wants to record a track with Tinie Tempah.

The 'Pocketful of Sunshine' singer is pleased to see other UK stars doing well In America, where she is based, and is keen to write a track with rapper Tinie, after he recently performed in the US for the first time.

Natasha - who was in the UK performing at the vinspired National Awards - told BANG Showbiz: "I'm a big fan of Tinie Tempah.

"Again it's like he has an underground following now, but he did a show in New York and it was amazing. I'd love to work with Tinie - collaborating with artists is my thing.

"And Adele - I'm really proud to see British people like Adele come through because it just represents us really well."

Natasha has an impressive list of previous collaborators - including Rascal Flatts, Sean Kingston, Maroon 5's Adam Levine, Eve and Kevin Rudolf - but she most recently starred on rapper Nicki Minaj's album 'Pink Friday', and said despite her bad girl image, the 'Roman's Revenge' star is really friendly.

Natasha added: "She's got a real out there personality, but she's really sweet, really nice. She's not one of those girls that you can't be friends with, we had a great time."
