Rihanna has asked N-Dubz star Fazer to produce tracks for her new album

Former N-Dubz rapper and producer Fazer has bagged himself the gig of a lifetime after being reportedly asked to work with Rihanna on her seventh studio album.

The 24-year-old We Found Love singer was said to be so impressed by Fazor's work on Tulisa Contostavlos' debut single, Young, that she wanted him to produce tracks for her new album.

Rihanna is said to be a big fan of the 25-year-old English DJ and producer.

Sources close to Fazer, who is in the studio with The Wanted, said he was so keen to impress that he was already preparing tracks to put forward to the singer.

An insider told the Sun: ''Rihanna's team heard his production on Tulisa's Young and his new single, Killer, and thought he'd be ideal for her album. He's got decent producing experience under his belt with all the N-Dubz material.

''Fazer's knuckling down to the job and making tracks tailor-made for her. 'If her team are impressed, she'll record the vocals with him.''

RiRi's Roc Nation management team has been holding meetings to discuss her next record. The highly anticipated album will also feature tracks produced by Ne-Yo and Labrinth.
