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."
