X Factor 2012 Winner James Arthur To Team Up With Jay-Z?

X Factor 2012 only named winner James Arthur last weekend, and Jay-Z is reportedly already interested in helping out on his debut album!

James has been rumoured to be recording a duet with Ed Sheeran since his weekend victory, and now Jay-Z has his eye on the Brit singer.

A source told the Daily Star:

“Jay-Z is a keen spotter of British talent and is already involved with Rita Ora and K Koke, and worked with Tinchy Stryder and Sugababes too.

“He is convinced James can follow One Direction’s lead and break into the American market.

“Jay knows what kind of music James should be making and that’s gritty and edgy. He feels his team could master an album of worldwide hits.”

Is anyone else RIDICULOUSLY EXCITED about this?! We are… BS
