London: Cheryl Cole’s next album, due out in March, will include a duet with Barbadian star Rihanna.

The 28-year-old British singer really hit it off with Rihanna when she went to see the Rihanna’s sell-out Loud tour at the O2 in London last month.

And when the ‘Umbrella’ hitmaker returns to London for next month’s awards season they will meet up to work on the as-yet-untitled song, which is expected to be on Cole’s upcoming album.

“It’s a big year for Cheryl. She can’t wait for her little soldiers to hear the music she’s been passionately working on over the past 12 months,” the Mirror quoted a source as saying.

“She has struck up a friendship with Rihanna, who recently duetted with Brit star Calvin Harris.

“Rihanna thinks the world of Cheryl and will work on a party remix with her when they meet up on her next visit.

“The album fuses pop, hip hop, soul and dance.

“It already has some party anthems on it but Rihanna’s would get everyone up on their feet,” the source added.
