"Wake Me Up" Singer Aloe Blacc Eyes Christina Aguilera, Rihanna Collaborations

Backstage at SXSW 2014, the SoCal soul singer also details writing in the studio with Pharrell and Avicii

Soul singer Aloe Blacc has already teamed up with big-time producers like Avicii (on their smash collabo "Wake Me Up") and Pharrell (who produced Blacc's "Love Is the Answer"). While prepping for his 13th showcase at SXSW 2014, the Southern California says he's hustling to work with two famous divas next.

"Recently, I did The Voice and that night I had the chance to briefly speak with Christina Aguilera," he tells Fuse host Esteban Serrano. "I'm interested in working with her, that would be cool."

Meanwhile, "The Man" singer is using industry connections to link up with Rihanna. He adds, "I was in Paris talking to some of Rihanna's managers. Maybe I'll get a chance to maybe write a song for her, maybe sing with her. We'll see. I'm not going to make any promises, but it'd be really nice to do something like that."

Watch the full interview for more Blacc to find out what being in the studio with Pharrell and Avicii is like plus his thoughts on how "Wake Me Up" became Spotify's most-streamed song ever. Don't miss all of Fuse's SXSW coverage including the best moments from Austin (so far) right here.
