Looks like Cheryl Cole’s master plan of making a musical comeback might have just been put in to action. Apparently Rihanna has been paid  agreed to record a ‘party anthem’ with the Girls Aloud star.

Cheryl is currently working on her third album and is already getting help from her BFF Will. i. am and supposed love interests, Taio Cruz and producer Alex Da Kid. In fact, is there anyone working on this album that isn’t in love with the singer?

Apparently Rihanna also has a close friendship with the Geordie. A source told The Mirror:

She has struck up a friendship with Rihanna. Rihanna thinks the world of Cheryl and will work on a party remix with her when they meet up on her next visit.[Her] 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.

A collaboration with Ri-Ri would certainly do wonders for Cheryl’s solo career and perhaps also give her that added publicity in America that she so desperately craves.
