Rihanna called into Ryan Seacrest's show this morning to talk about her upcoming projects and the recent remixes she put out with former boyfriend Chris Brown.
âThe first song that came about was âBirthday Cake.â I mean we ended up recording them at the same time and executing them together, but I reached out to him about doing âBirthday Cakeâ because thatâs the only person that reallyâit made sense to do the record. Just as a musician despite everything else that was going to be the person. You know I thought about rappers, and Iâve done that so many times, and the hottest R&B artist out right now is Chris Brown. So I wanted him on the track, and then in turn he was like âWhy donât you do the remix to my track?â and 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 shouldnât be a divide. You know? Itâs music, and itâs innocent.â
