Chris Brown and Drake put their love rivalry behind them on Tuesday by enjoying a night out together in New York City.

The pop star and the rapper have both been involved with Rihanna – Brown’s romance with the Bajan beauty ended after a vicious fight which left him with an assault conviction, while Drake enjoyed a brief fling with the singer in the wake of the couple’s split.

But Brown and Drake put the past behind them and proved they are good pals with an evening out in the Big Apple with their mutual friends Idris Elba and Lil’ Jon on Tuesday. After dining together, the foursome headed to exclusive hotspot Greenhouse and partied with stars including Wilmer Valderrama and Marlon Wayans.

Brown later slipped into the DJ booth to play Drake’s tracks, and stunned the crowd by taking the mic and performing a live rendition of his own songs in a five-track set, according to New York Post gossip column Page Six.
