The 'Say Nothing' rapper admits he would like to team-up with the boy band in the future.
Example has revealed he is keen to write a track for One Direction in the future, and says he has no preference who ends up singing the songs he writes for other artists.
The 'Changed The Way You Kissed Me' rapper says he would be keen to pen a song for the 'One Thing' five-piece, possibly for their upcoming second studio album, as well as admitted he would love to write for pop superstar Enrique Iglesias.
"I always go in [the studio] with a song title and a concept, then after the song's done I'll go, 'Yeah, that sounds like The Wanted', or 'Why don't we pitch that to Kylie?' or 'Why don't we pitch that to Enrique Iglesias'?" Example revealed exclusively to Capital FM this week. "I'd like to get a song on Enrique's album.
"I'd like to write a song for One Direction," the 'Stay Awake' rapper also explained. "I'm not really adverse to who sings my songs."
One Direction are currently in the recording studio working on the follow-up to their 2011 debut 'Up All Night', and have been working with songwriters like McFly on their sophomore effort.
Example notably penned The Wanted's 2012 hit single 'Chasing The Sun' earlier this year, which proved a big hit on the Vodafone Big Top 40.
The 'Stay Awake' rapper unveiled the first music video from his brand new fourth album 'The Evolution Of Man' earlier today (8th August), for his upcoming single 'Say Nothing'.
