While “Loyal” is burning up the radio and charts, Chris Brown is in jail working on more music for his release.

According to reports, the R&B singer made friends with fellow inmate and 80’s star James DeBarge, and they’re writing songs music together. TMZ says the new musical pair met in a segregated unit at the L.A. County Jail for high profile inmates.

“We’re told they’ve been collaborating on music and have already written three songs, performing them during the long days … with other cellmates harmonizing,” the site reports. They are in side-by-side cells so they can’t see each other but doesn’t stop them from singing tunes, an inside source adds.

If you’re not familiar with James DeBarge, he was a member of the family group DeBarge with his brother El. They became stars with songs “All This Love”, “In a Special Way” and “Rhythm of the Night.” The soul singer also married Janet Jackson in 1984.

As we reported earlier, Breezy is scheduled to be a free man in June, although his official release date isn’t until July 6. Good for him.
