Even young love isn't safe from the 2015 summer of heartbreak!

Austin Mahone, 19, opened up to ET on Tuesday about his very recent breakup from fellow pop newcomer Becky G, 18.

"We actually kinda broke up a few days ago, just 'cause we're so busy traveling and all that," he said. "We thought it was just kinda best if we just chill for a second, but we're still super close. We're close friends."

In fact, the friendly exes could even reunite on Mahone's forthcoming debut album.

"I think she'll definitely be featured on the album," he revealed. "Like I said, we're still close and I've produced and written some songs that we've done."

The split comes just a few months after the former couple showed off some serious PDA in the music video for Becky's single, "Lovin' So Hard." Now, Mahone is promoting his brand new single and video, "Dirty Work."

In addition to Becky G, Mahone says to expect a collaboration with Pia Mia on his new album when it drops -- though an exact release date has yet to be announced. He's also pushing hard for one very high-profile duet.

"I'm trying to get one with Chris Brown right now," Mahone said. "He's one of my favorite artists so if I could get that, that'd be amazing."

For now, Mahone doesn't seem to be taking his heartbreak too hard. In fact, the singer even stepped out on Sunday to celebrate at Kylie Jenner's star-studded 18th birthday party -- yes, the same soiree where Jenner was gifted with a $320K Ferrari.

"I think she crashed it, too, which is pretty crazy," Mahone said of the car. "I saw that on Twitter. I was like, 'What?!'"

What?! is right…
