Chris Brown has confirmed Rihanna features on his new album.

The 24-year-old singer and the Barbadian beauty were involved in a famous on/off romance, which was first rocked when Brown assaulted the star in 2009.

Currently broken up, it was recently reported the star had cut his collaboration with Rihanna from his upcoming album X.

But he has now put these rumours to rest by tagging her in a tweet about his hotly-anticipated release.

"New album features @NICKIMINAJ ,Kendrick , @rihanna, @KELLYROWLAND , @wizkhalifa ,@bobatl and more surprises to come. "X" (sic)" he wrote on Twitter.

Some time ago, Brown teased the track with Rihanna would be called Put It Up and had an R&B vibe.

However, it was then rumoured he had dropped his ex-girlfriend from the album.

Since splitting from Rihanna earlier in 2013, Brown has rekindled his relationship with former flame Karrueche Tran.

The pair apparently attended the BET Awards after-party at the end of June looking "loved up".

X is due for release on July 16 and it's rumoured a track featuring Jennifer Lopez will also be included.
