Rihanna wants to collaborate with Cheryl Cole.

The 'Umbrella' singer is reportedly desperate to record with the Girls Aloud star, after asking their mutual friend - will.i.am from Black Eyed Peas - to introduce them.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Rihanna is desperate to work with Cheryl. She fell in love with Cheryl's single 'Parachute', from her debut solo album '3 Words'. She listens to it in her car the whole time.

"Rihanna really wants to record a track with Cheryl - and already has one in mind that she's convinced she will love."

The 22-year-old Barbadian also admitted she is in awe of Cheryl, who she thinks is "the most beautiful woman".

She said: "She is awesome, I think she is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. Like, how do you have a face like that, with hair like that and dimples, and a body like that, that's proportioned like that. And you have a successful career, something about that is not right!"

Rihanna is also planning to work with rapper Eminem again, after their recent success of their single 'Love the Way You Lie' - with the pair reportedly planning a sequel track.

She explained: "Eminem is a genius. He's one of the cleverest poets around right now. His lyrics are unique. He tells a story, but in a very interesting way. I'd love to collaborate with him again. Actually, we've already been talking about it."
