Labrinth is currently putting the finishing touches to his debut album and will then concentrate on writing for artists including Cheryl Cole, Kelly Rowland and Usher

Labrinth is writing songs for Cheryl Cole, Kelly Rowland and Usher.

The 'Last Time' hitmaker is putting the finishing touches to his debut album 'Electronic Earth', before working with other artists on their records and following his success writing 'Pass Out' and 'Frisky' with Tinie Tempah, has some huge name stars lined up.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "It's down to who I'm feeling at the time, and who I think I can add something to, and that's who I do it. I listen to their music and if I feel I could add a string to their bow I will do it.

"I've spoke to Busta Rhymes and we've done a remix version of Earthquake which is going off in America at the moment, I'm getting ready to work with a few people at the moment, I've had talks with Cheryl Cole, Kelly Rowland, Usher and a few others."

The 22-year-old star also said he could one day collaborate with Rihanna - who had previously approached him before he was even famous, but he hadn't been able to work with.

He added: "I've had offers to work with Rihanna, but at the time I was working on my own stuff, so I didn't think it was necessary to kind of stop. It wasn't something I could do at the time, but I could work with her now. The offer is still open so it might still happen."

Labrinth will appear at a special concert to launch Wrigley's 5 Gum's new flavour, Evolution, at London club Pulse on March 7. Fans can get free tickets from
