R&B pop singer Rihanna is planning to release last night’s (February 20) BRIT Award collaboration with British band Klaxons as a single.

Rihanna and Klaxons teamed up last night to perform Rihanna’s ‘Umbrella’ hit mixed with Klaxons’ ‘Golden Skans’.

Both were nominated for BRIT Awards, but came away empty-handed.

The singer told BBC6 Music that she was very impressed with how rock’n’roll the song turned out, saying: “(It was) really different, very cool, unexpected. But when I hear it, I just want to hear it more. It makes it so much more rock and roll.

“It’s a different tempo and everything. But I actually want to release a version like that. Maybe the same version. I really, really liked it.”
