London: Indian origin rapper Jay Sean is keen to collaborate on a raunchy track with R&B star Rihanna.

The 29-year-old hip hop singer, whose debut album `Me Against Myself` was the highest selling one in Asia, has spoken of his desire to perform a duet with the `Disturbia` hitmaker, reported Contactmusic.

The pioneer of Bhangra-R&B fusion who has hits like `Eyes On You` and `Stolen` to his credit, also hopes to collaborate with Beyonce Knowles.

"I want to work with Rihanna and Beyonce, they would be my top female artists.

"Rihanna would be amazing, because we`re in a very similar lane - it`s that pop/dance/ R&B thing. It`d have to be a raunchy song and we`d have to act it out," he said.

Sean, who collaborated with Mary J Blige and Lil Wayne on his new album `Freeze Time`, is happy to interact and learn from such established artists.

"You just have to trust them to do what they do best. With Lil Wayne, he listened to the song, interpreted it and put his rap on it. I like to learn from the greats. They`ve been doing it so long," added Sean.
