Chris Brown, the 24-year-old singer-songwriter, recently confirmed that his ex-girlfriend Rihanna would be featured on his sixth studio album "X," despite reports that he decided to cut the Barbadian pop star from his latest project.
Brown took to Twitter to let over 12 million followers know that Rihanna,25, would indeed be on his upcoming album despite previous media reports.
"New album features @NICKIMINAJ ,Kendrick , @rihanna, @KELLYROWLAND , @wizkhalifa ,@bobatl and more surprises to come. 'X,'" Brown tweeted Thursday.
The news comes after Hollywoodlife.com reported that Brown did not want his ex-girlfriend to appear on his album slated for release later this month.
"Just saw the working track list for 'X' yesterday - Rihanna is not on there," sources reportedly told Hollywoodlife.com. "Record execs wanted that song on there, but Chris said he would rather not and wouldn't allow the record to be released unless they took it off."
While Brown may have had a change of heart, he once envisioned creating an entire album with his ex-girlfriend. Earlier this year, he opened up about the possibility of him and Rihanna collaborating on an entire album together after the pair's multiple song collaborations.
"[That] might be crazy," Brown told MTV News previously. "You gotta wait though. 'X' and then you get the Rihanna and Chris Brown album!"
Brown previously revealed that the pair would release a single together called "Put It Up," which fans may expect to hear on his upcoming album.
"So we did 'Nobody's Business' for her album, and then I wrote a song, it's called 'Put It Up.' It's more of an R&B record," Brown told MTV previously. "I wanted to do an R&B record with Rihanna because I didn't want it to be the same four-on-the-floor, pop. At the end of the day, that's what they expect from us, so I wanted to do more of a record that nobody really heard her sing on as far as that genre."
