The 'Last Time' singer says the Bajan pop star is a "great artist" he would love to work with.
Labrinth has revealed he would love to produce a record for Rihanna but won't beg the 'We Found Love' singer to work with him.
The 'Earthquake' rapper says he has several records ready for the Bajan star to record, potentially for her upcoming seventh studio album, but has yet to get in the studio with Rihanna herself.
"I've got records here for her," Labrinth revealed to The Sun this week. "It just depends if she wants to record on them.
"If she does then we'll have a collaboration with her, if not then that's that," the 'Let The Sun Shine' singer explained. "It's not even a case of fingers crossed. I like Rihanna, she's a great artist, but I'm not begging for anyone - I don't need it."
Labrinth has previous collaborated with the likes of Tinie Tempah and Emeli Sande, on his debut solo album 'Electronic Earth'.

The 'Last Time' singer revealed earlier in the summer that he had been in touch with Rihanna's management about potential working with her on the follow-up to her 2011 album 'Talk That Talk'.
Labrinth is set to embark on a brand new UK tour this autumn starting at Bristol's O2 Academy on 17th October.
