Rihanna and Cheryl Cole to record single together

Pair set to hook up for duet in LA

Rihanna and Cheryl Cole are set to record a single together, according to reports.

The Daily Star Sunday claims that the Girls Aloud singer and the ‘Umbrella’ star will meet in LA this week to work in the studio together on a collaborative track.

“Cheryl’s flown to LA to put the finishing touches to her album and is due to meet Rihanna to record their duet,” said a source.

They added:

It’s been a long time coming and something both their management teams have been trying to arrange. But with their busy schedules and Rihanna’s tour dates, they haven’t been able to until now.

Earlier this month, it was reported that Cheryl Cole could release the first single from her third studio album in March.

The singer, who had previously insisted she was eager for the as-yet-untitled LP to have a “more urban vibe” and was said to be chasing collaborations with hip-hop stars Eminem and Nicki Minaj, has reportedly almost finished work on the record.

Rihanna, meanwhile, released her sixth studio album ‘Talk That Talk’ in November last year.
