The list of acts performing at this month's Brit Awards is already impressive but it's just got a whole lot bigger - Rihanna will take to the stage.

The Barbadian singer will join the likes of Adele, Coldplay and Justin Bieber as performer at the awards ceremony due to take place at London's 02 Arena.

The news comes a week after she dropped new track "Work" and album - named Anti - through Jay-Z's music streaming service TIDAL. The single saw her reteam with Drake whom she collaborated with on the 2010 hit "What's My Name?'

Following the release of Anti, Rihanna clocked up almost 1.5 million downloads in 15 hours - however, at the time of reporting, the hard copy has so far only sold a mere 460 copies so far.

Fellow performers Coldplay have a busy month of live performances ahead of them; as well as the Brits, the British band will play the halftime show at this Sunday's Super Bowl (7 February).

In addition, frontman Chris Martin is the latest star to participate in James Corden's popular Late Late Show segment 'Carpool Karaoke.'

The Brit Awards will be broadcast live on ITV on 24 February. You can see the full list of nominations here.
