Rizzle Kicks want to write a track with Prince.

The 'Mamma do the Hump' group draw from an eclectic range of influences like the 'Purple Rain' star, and would like to work with him, or to collaborate with one of today's huge rap stars.

The group's Harley Alexander exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "We'd love to work with Prince - He's such a genius. Or Wu Tang, Odd future or Plan B - these are all acts we've seen and been impressed by. Eminem as a rapper is pretty inspirational."

Both Harley, 20, and his bandmate Jordan Stephens, also 20, admitted they feel they have to get more famous before they can move in the same circles as some of the girls they have crushes on.

Jordan said: "There are a lot of attractive people you meet, but a lot have boyfriends, and people who are more successful.

"So I think we have a couple of years before we can start mingling with them."

Rizzle Kicks performed their first ever acoustic set in London yesterday (13.03.12), which saw them presented on wires by a pair of Orange Ninjas for a performance at Broadgate on the edge of the city - to support mobile phone operator Orange's latest Swapables TV advertising campaign.

The group performed four tracks in front of commuters, helping to liven up their daily journey into work.

BRIT School graduates Rizzle Kicks have been having their own go at the charts, following in the footsteps of their classmates Adele and Leona Lewis. The pair offer 80s-inspired, 'flower power' hip hop in support of their 2011 debut album, Stereo Typical.
