The Wanted set to break America

The Wanted's US record label, Def Jam have employed Grammy-winner Diana Warren to write songs for the boy band in a bid to crack the States.

Warren, who wrote Aerosmith's 'I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing' and Starship's 'Nothing Gonna Stop Us Now', has written three tracks for the British boyband.

The Wanted's Jay McGuiness told The Daily Star whilst in L.A.: "We’re with Def Jam Records in America and they have a relationship with Diane so they set it all up. They told her all about us, then she did a bit of research and wrote us a song called Rocket. It was really flattering.

“If you walk down her hall she’s got discs for millions of record sales.

“We don’t know who sings what – we all sang the whole thing but Nathan killed it. He suits the American vocal.”

Warren was so impressed with how the boys performed 'Rocket', as she was only expecting two of the band to be able to sing, that she decided to write two more songs for the group.

Siva Kaneswaran continued: 'When she played us a song it was like a stream of magic was falling from her head."

The band also recently watched an L.A. Galaxy game from the V.I.P. box after receiving a personal inivite from the Beckhams. Max George said "Romeo is the double of his mum - it's like looking at her head but small."
