The 'Stay Awake' rapper is working with the producer behind hits by Rihanna, Britney Spears and Katy Perry.

Example has revealed that he is currently recording with the producer behind Rihanna's hits 'Only Girl (In The World)' and 'S&M'.

The 'Changed The Way You Kissed Me' rapper is currently in New York City, and announced on Twitter that he will be working with French songwriter and producer Sandy Vee on some new material.

"Last day in the New York. Going gym," Example tweeted earlier today (16th February). "Then studio with Sandy Vee – he who produced 'Only Girl In The World'. Guy has skills."

Sandy penned both 'S&M' and 'Only Girl (In The World)' for Rihanna's 2011 album 'Loud', as well as producing them both, and is also behind tracks like Katy Perry's "Firework' and Nicole Scherzinger's 'Wet'.

The 'Midnight Run' rapper announced this week that he is hoping to launch his first headlining US tour later this year, and has promised to perform new material on his upcoming UK arena tour.

Example is due to kick off his arena tour with a performance at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff on 20th April.
