The singer-songwriter confessed that their busy work schedules delayed plans to collaborate, but he hopes to work with the boyband in the future.
Labrinth told Capital FM: "It was unlucky that we didn't get to meet after the show. I think they had to do something but it was nice having them down in the building. A few extra girls turned up to say hello and yeah, it was mad.
"Actually, I was supposed to work with them a while ago. I remember their A&R was setting up for me to work with them, but we were just so busy, so you never know, it might happen in the future."
The Wanted moved up to number three on the US Hot 100 chart this week with their single 'Glad You Came'.
Meanwhile, Labrinth is currently promoting his new single 'Last Time', while his debut album Electronic Earth will be released on April 2.
