50 Cent has expressed his interest in getting a collaboration with songstress Susan Boyle, the singer responsible for breaking Eminem's record for the highest first-week sales of 2009.
According to the G-Unit leader, he is always on the prowl for diverse collaborations.
"Susan Boyle is hot right now." Fif told the Mirror. "I got to get her on a track, for real. We'd make a hit. Everyone is talking about her, the lady from 'Britain's Got Talent.' I'm always looking to do something new and she's cool, so I'll ask somebody to let her know. I'd love to take her clubbing, show her around my world. She'd have a great time." (Angry Ape)
The singer's I Dreamed a Dream crushed record sales last week.

Online reports earlier this month suggested Em would likely settle for having the second best record of 2009.
U.S. music retailers say they are realizing Susan Boyle's dreams, as her album "I Dreamed A Dream" is blowing up way beyond sales expectations. Label and distribution executives, meanwhile, project that based on early sales returns at the big box stores and pre-orders at direct marketers like Amazon and QVC, Boyle's album is in contention to beat this year's top debut-week seller, Eminem's "Relapse." That title scanned 608,000 units in the week ending May 24, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That week also represents the best overall sales week for an album this year. (Billboard)
50 recently said he had no plans to offer more mixtape material after dropping his next underground project.
"Well the next mixtape was already, portions of it was already recorded before the release of Before I Self Destruct but I didn't want to release it before [or] so close to the actual album that people would make comparisons between the material," Fif explained in an interview. "Because they're both up to standard, I felt that my core that really enjoys the aggressive content might enjoy the mixtape and try to compare it to what I did, performance-wise, to what I actually did on the actual record. I know hands-down the album is better, but I just didn't want to put it out there at that point. So after that, I won't offer any mixtape material." (VIBE)
