Beyonce Knowles' manager father wants her to duet with Robbie Williams, to help the British singer crack America.

MATTHEW KNOWLES is convinced the former TAKE THAT star could be huge stateside if he collaborates with Beyonce - and the DESTINY'S CHILD star is keen on the idea too.

He says, "Beyonce and him should do a duet.

"She really wants to do that, by the way. It would be a win-win for both of them."

But Knowles Sr insists breaking America shouldn't be the sole focus for foreign acts: "Concentrate on your base first.

"Too many people become focused on America, but you are sitting on a gold mine and you don't know it.

"Destiny's Child's are bigger outside the US than they are at home."
