The Wanted after Coldplay-style Rihanna hook-up

Singer Tom Parker has said:
Great deals on musical instruments
A member of Glad You Came band The Wanted has been talking about following in the footsteps of Coldplay.

The group apparently fancy emulating the guitar and piano flavoured band by enlisting Rihanna, she of the massive hit Umbrella and the recent film Battleship.

The Wanted's Tom Parker has talked about the Russian Roulette singer's work with Coldplay on Capital FM, saying: "I think the [song] she did with Coldplay, Princess Of China, was so good and really brought a different side to Coldplay." The track hit number 33 in the charts in the tail end of last year.

Coldplay, fronted by Chris Martin, have a catalogue of well known material, including Clocks, Trouble and Yellow, while Rihanna recently scored a number one with We Found Love. Rude Boy and What's My Name are among her other hits.

"Maybe she can bring that Bajan side to The Wanted," Parker speculated of the singer, who hails from Barbados.

Lightening and Gold Forever are among The Wanted's songs.
