Conor Maynard wants to work with John Mayer.
The 'Turn Around' singer thinks the US star is an "incredible" talent and would love his idol to pen a track for him.
He said: "John Mayer would be someone I would love to collaborate with, he is someone I look up to and I think his music is incredible.
"If I had a song written by him, along the lines of his kind of music that would be crazy."
The 19-year-old star also urged people to but his album 'Contrast' as he thinks even those who didn't like his earlier singles 'Can't Say No' and 'Vegas Girl' will find something that appeals to their tastes.
He told the Yorkshire Evening Post newspaper: "I've had the chance to work with some incredible people on the album and I think what people don't realise is that my first two singles are more a kind of young, pop sound but different parts of the album are older, more mature tracks.
"There are two tracks written and produced by Pharrell, there is a track written by Frank Ocean, a track featuring Rita Ora. I think the new single Turn Around featuring Ne-Yo is more of a step towards that more mature, developed kind of sound.
"For me, guys should get the album because even if they think the first two singles are aimed at a younger audience there are definitely tracks on the album that are aimed at an older crowd. It's getting those people to latch onto the album and figure that out."
