50 CENT is planning to make Jamelia "the first lady of G-Unit".

The Candy Shop rapper - real name Curtis James Jackson III - hit it off with the British singer at the premiere of his movie Dead Man Running in London last October, and has pledged to help her launch her career in the US by signing her up to his record label.

A source close to the hip-hop star said: "He thinks she is sexy, talented and has the right personality and talent to be huge in America. He wants to make her the new first lady of G-Unit, as it has no female artists."

Jamelia recently revealed she had flown out to the US to work on her new album.

She said: "I'm collaborating with some amazing producers. I've worked with a guy called Harmony who's part of the Darkchild camp - he's worked with everyone from Beyoncé to Lady Gaga.

"I've also worked with a couple of producers out in Atlanta - a guy called Hard Work who's very up-and-coming, and another guy, AJ, who's produced stuff for the new Usher album."

Jamelia's last album Walk With Me sold 100000 copies, but she wasn't happy with it. - Bang
