Chris Brown has been doing more in Miami than reconciling with Rihanna. He's been recording.

E! News has learned exclusively that, in addition to riding a jet ski daily in the waters behind Diddy's manse, where he has been trying to patch things up with his girlfriend following their Grammys eve blowup, Brown has been laying down tracks for a new album.

Brown, 19, has been in Miami for about a week and has been recording late at night at Miami's famed Hit Factory studio. There has been no sign of Rihanna, 21, at any of the sessions.

Meanwhile, despite reports by People and Extra, Brown was not out partying solo Saturday.

Those outlets were among many that claimed Brown was kicking it up in South Beach with Young Jeezy, Reggie Bush and Khloé Kardashian (sister of Bush's girlfriend, Kim).

Sources tell E! News that Bush has a friend who bears a resemblance to Brown. Apparently some fellow revelers at the Gansevoort South Hotel mistook the Bush pal for Brown, who was absolutely not in attendance. Neither Bush nor Khloé Kardashian have ever met Brown, our insiders say.

Indeed, speaking to Celebuzz, Kardashian confirms the mistaken identity. “I find it so silly that so many media outlets picked up our story with no truth behind it."
