Rihanna added to Radio 1's Hackney Weekend

Rihanna is the latest big name to be added to Radio 1's Hackney Weekend.

The Bajan Beauty, who played Radio 1's Big Weekend in 2010, is set to headline the event's Sunday night on June 24.

She joins a line-up that already includes the likes of Jay-Z, Ed Sheeran, Florence + The Machine and Jessie J.

Some of the acts set to play on the same day as Rihanna include Lana Del Rey, Tine Tempah, David Guetta and Plan B.

As previously reported, Rihanna recently explained the reasons behind her controversial team-up with former boyfriend Chris Brown. Brown was convicted of assaulting Rihanna in 2009, but the 'You Da One' singer said that her 2012 collaborations with Brown were purely "innocent".
