The British stars speak about the approval of the Bajan star on their latest single.
The Wanted have revealed that they heard Rihanna is a big fan of the group's latest single 'Walks Like Rihanna'.
The five-piece's latest single pays tribute to the Bajan star, and Tom Parker told MTV that he heard of her approval after a conversation with her manager.
"We met her manager in New York and he said that he really liked it and that she really liked it which is always a good sign 'cos if she hated it we'd be in a pretty bad place," he confessed.
The track is the first to be taken from the group's forthcoming new album – released later this year.
'Walks Like Rihanna' will be released on 23rd June.
The singer had been on hiatus from the group for two months as he recovered from throat surgery.
