Chipmunk is still holding out for his dream duet with Rihanna.

The rapper, who mentions the Umbrella star in his track Flying High, insisted that the collaboration will happen - because he has already dreamt about it.

"You know, what's funny is that I had a dream that I did a song with Rihanna. So yeah, one day I'm going to do one," he told the Daily Mirror.

It's not just wishful thinking for Chipmunk - real name is Jahmaal Fyffe - who has already met the superstar.

"I met her once in a club. It was very brief, but she's a star. She walks in and you know she's there," he recalled.

The 20-year-old, whose new single Take Off featuring Trey Songz is out now, caused controversy when he recorded Champion with Rihanna's ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, who had been convicted for assaulting her. Chipmunk didn't let the case influence their musical work.

"I never talked to him about that. I stay out of people's personal lives. I'm not going to lie - every single person told me not to do that track. I don't care," he continued.

"Even before I started rapping, I was a fan of Chris Brown and I still am. I think he's the best alive. Working with him wasn't something I had to think twice about. That song felt like it was written for me and Chris."

Aquarius:

A cherished dream is elusive. It will be best to change gear, at least for the immediate future. Pursue a moneymaking opportunity with creative appeal. Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
