"[Requesting songs], that's a big no-no! No, you should just put your iPhone on and just download the track," he revealed to Australian radio show hosts Kyle and Jackie O.

The Black Eyed Peas rapper released album #willpower last month, which includes the Britney collaboration Scream & Shout.

The stars are in talks about recording more songs together and have been discussing the direction their new music could take.

"Yeah, we have been having lunches and just vibing and talking about working and our history and the things we've been through in life and talking about how that influences the music," he explained.

"People don't do that these days; people just go into the studio and there's no research to give it meaning. [Our new music is] looking personal."
