Rihanna on Working with Chris Brown Again


After pictures of her badly brutalized face leaked out on the internet and eventually on papers, Rihanna sure has a lot of explaining to do as to why she is again ‘hooking up’ with Chris Brown – although she continues to insist that it is just for the remix of her record, ‘Birthday Cake’.

The music world was indeed shocked when in February Rihanna tapped her abusive ex-boyfriend (and reportedly current secret lover for over a year) Chris Brown to sing on a sexually explicit remix of her song “Birthday Cake” while she, in turn, sang on a remix of his own song “Turn Up the Music.”

Rihanna spoke with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show on Thursday to explain herself, saying, “I reached out to him about doing ‘Birthday Cake’ because [he was] the only person that really made sense to do the record — just as a musician. Despite everything else, that was gonna be the person.”

“You know, I thought about rappers, [but] the hottest R&B artist out right now is Chris Brown. So I wanted him on the track,” she explained to Seacrest matter-of-factly.

“It was a tradeoff,” Rihanna added. “We did two records — one for my fans, one for his fans. That way, our fans could come together. There shouldn’t be a divide. It’s music and it’s innocent.”
