Chris BrownChris Brown wants to work with Leona Lewis.

The Run It hitmaker — who recently admitted to assaulting ex-girlfriend Rihanna — reportedly has set his sights on collaborating with the British singer for a single.

“He thinks she’s great,” a source told Britain’s The People newspaper.

However, if Brown wants to hit the studio with Lewis, he’ll have to get in there quickly — it was recently reported that the Bleeding Love songstress was planning to quit showbiz.

“Career-wise, Leona’s dreams have come true,” a source said. “But she doesn’t really seem to socialize in Los Angeles because she misses [boyfriend] Lou so much. I think she wasn’t quite aware how different her life would become.

“Leona is torn because she loves being a singer but Lou is the love of her life. Sometimes I think she would like to fly back to London and never go to another red-carpet event again.

“I guess Leona would be happier eating a home-cooked meal with Lou in rainy old London than she’ll ever be in the glitzy bars in Los Angeles.

“Lou and Leona look at other couples who manage to keep their relationship alive even though they sometimes live apart. They know they’re a strong enough couple to make it work.”
