The song 'Chasing The Sun' was originally written for Kylie Minogue but Example felt it sounded more suited to the all-singing, no-dancing boyband.
He explained: "When I wrote it, I was in a studio session for Kylie, so the verses were a bit spiritual. But when we finished I was like: 'This is The Wanted', and didn’t even bother running it past Kylie."
The humble rapper told Star Playlist that the Kylie cast-off had been well-received. "I sent it straight over to their record label and they loved it," he said, adding: "The guy who…is releasing the band in the States on Def Jam said, 'This could be big in America'."
Example admitted that he wasn't always keen on the group but now he appreciates how they're choreographed to not look choreographed. "I said they looked like a bunch of Hollyoaks extras," he said, but he conceded that "I like it that they’re not too choreographed and are like a bunch of mates bumbling around".
The Wanted's American tour kicks off in two weeks time on January 17.
