A few weeks ago Rihanna tweeted that she would release a full version of her interlude track ‘Birthday Cake’ from her ‘Talk That Talk’ Album. Speculation began to run wild that she would feature Christina Aguilera on the track as she tweeted she was looking for a ‘Dirrrrrty’ partner for the song. Then things turned strange when the producers of the track claimed that the feature would ‘Shock The World’ and that only left one name in the pot to cause such a shock…….Chris Brown. After the jump Miss Info has the scoop on the full story.
**UPDATE FROM MISS INFO AFTER THE JUMP**
UPDATE 2/17: Well, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised…but I’m guessing some fans will be disappointed to hear that Rihanna is allegedly being pressured to shelf the “Birthday Cake (Remix)” completely. It’s possible that she recorded it with Chris without alerting label and management. But here’s the thing…burying this song, doesn’t really solve anything if these two continue to reunite in other ways. And by the looks of Rihanna’s twitter rant, the heart wants what the heart wants. Plus, are all parties ready to begin a lengthy period of lying about the duet’s existence? Seems like both Rihanna and Chris are pushing back…
*Yes, Chris’ hint means Rihanna is on his remix.*
Is the world ready for a Rihanna and Chris Brown reunion? Well, ready or not, it is happening.
Rihanna has recorded a remix to her song “Birthday Cake” featuring Chris Brown, herGrammy-winning ex-boyfriend who was also convicted of assaulting her 3 years ago this month.
Recently, the song’s co-producers, Da Internz, hinted to MTV News, that “the feature on [the remix] is gonna shock the world.” They didn’t exaggerate. Your girl Info confirmed with two independent sources that Rihanna has Chris Brown featured on the song. He recorded both a singing verse, and a rap verse. (We’ll see if both of those verses make the final song.)
And as for rumors that Chris Brown attended Rihanna’s early birthday celebrationafter the Grammys this past weekend….Yes, that is also true. In fact, Chris arrived at the party with Rihanna. And stayed. It was not a drive-by appearance. And the energy between the two did not appear purely platonic. The party was a small intimate one. Family members, friends, and interestingly enough, management (Hov was not there, obviously). I imagine there were lots of mixed reactions in the room. (And no, everyone didn’t sign a confidentiality agreement)
I for one am not sure how this is going to go down. I can’t believe Jay-Z signed off on this? I mean I’m rooting for them both so personally i don’t care but the media do care and both of them will be blasted for such a collaboration 3 years after the assault case. Rihanna will have many women who backed her as well as men looking at her with that side eye o_O
