The 'Midnight Run' rapper says he expects the 'Lightning' singers to do well when they launch themselves in the US this year.

Example claims the track he penned for The Wanted could help the 'Warzone' singers make it big in America.

The 'Changed The Way You Kissed Me' rapper recently wrote a song called 'Chasing The Sun' which will appear on The Wanted's reissue of their second album 'Battleground' later this year.

"When I wrote it I was in a studio session for Kylie, so the verses were a bit spiritual," Example told the Daily Star. "But when we finished I was like, 'This is The Wanted', and didn't even bother running it past Kylie.

"I sent it straight over to their record label and they loved it."

Example predicts that 'Chasing The Sun' could be the track to help The Wanted crack America after they kick off a string of US tour dates later this month.

"The guy who signed me in America is releasing the band in the States on Def Jam and he said, 'This could be big in America'," Example teased.

The Wanted are due to begin their US tour on 17th January with a performance in Orlando, Florida.
