Charli XCX wants to write for Justin Bieber.
The 'Boom Clap' hitmaker has penned songs for stars including Gwen Stefani and Iggy Azalea, but admitted the 21-year-old singer is at the top of her list for artists she wants to write for because she thinks he's "really, really great".
She said: "I like Justin Bieber as a pop star. I think he's really, really great. I really love the song 'Baby.' I think it's awesome.
"I would love to. I've never written for a boy before. I don't even know what I would say, but who knows?"
However, the 22-year-old star - who recently released her second studio album 'Sucker' - confessed she had a bit of a break from songwriting due to a creative block in April, but is now keen to get back into the studio to make music for herself and other acts before she embarks on a US tour with Jack Antonoff in July.
Speaking to Billboard at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas where she was attending the Billboard Music Awards, she said: "Last month I had a bit of a breakdown because I was feeling like I couldn't be creative enough so I've booked a load of studio time and I'm gonna be writing for myself, for my new project, and some other artists too. I can't say who. But yeah, there's songwriting going on right now."
