The 'You Da One' star's big screen debut in Battleship has apparently helped her score a part in Vin Diesel starring series.

The 'We Found Love' singer is top of the movie writers' wish list according to the publication who claim her debut acting role in recent blockbuster Battleship has lead to increased interest in the Bajan star.
