R+B star Chris Brown is desperate to get idol Michael Jackson on side for a collaboration.

The 16-year-old RUN IT! hitmaker, who also claims inspiration from soul legend Stevie Wonder and Usher, already has his sights set on working with Beyonce and 50 CENT.

But the rising star is adamant the THRILLER singer would be his ultimate dream.

He tells MTV.com, "Michael Jackson. Just get him on a hook and it's a wrap."
