In a interview with RYAN SEACREST on his morning radio show, RIHANNA explains why she and CHRIS made the decision to collaborate together.
“The first song that came about was ‘Birthday Cake.’ I mean we ended up recording them at the same time and executing them together, but I reached out to him about doing ‘Birthday Cake’ because that’s the only person that really–it made sense to do the record. Just as a musician despite everything else that was going to be the person.”
RIHANNA said she mulled over using a rapper instead, but said, “I’ve done that so many times, and the hottest R&B artist out right now is Chris Brown.”
RIHANNA admits after CHRIS got on her track, he wanted to return the favor. “It was a trade off. We did two records. One for my fans. One for his fans, and that way our fans can come together. There shouldn’t be a divide. You know? It’s music, and it’s innocent.”
RIHANNA and CHRIS BROWN are anything but innocent, but we can see that their intentions were good…we think.
