Rudimental have been desperate to collaborate with Lauryn Hill for over four years.

The English drum and bass band, which is comprised of Piers Agget, Amir Amor, Kesi Dryden and DJ Locksmith, have admitted they would ''love'' to work with the 41-year-old singer songwriter and have always been keen to feature on a track with the 'Killing Me Softly with His Song' hitmaker since 2012.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz about who they plan to work with in the future, the band - who have collaborated with Ella Eyre, John Newman and Emeli Sande - said: ''Lauryn Hill. We'd love to work Lauryn Hill, if she's listening ... we would love to work with you. Every interview we've done since 2012 we've been calling out her name so hopefully she features [on a song with us].''

However, the 'Waiting All Night' hitmakers have been ''ticking off'' a number of musical legends they have always wanted to work with, including Nile Rogers, George Clinton and Bobby Womack.

They explained: ''A lot of them are dead. We managed to work on our last album with someone I really idolised as a young person - George Clinton from Parliament and Funkadelic and we actually got him on a couple of tracks. It was also amazing to work with Nile Rogers, that was a lot of fun. Bobby Womack, we're ticking them off.''
