Rihanna on Chris Brown Remixes: All About the Music!

by at . Comments

When Rihanna tapped her abusive ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown, to join her on a sexually explicit remix of "Birthday Cake" last month, the music world was shocked.

Chatting with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, she spoke about the reasons behind that remix and their other collaboration (on Brown's "Turn Up the Music").

"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," Rih said.

"Despite everything else, that was gonna be the person."

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

In turn, she agreed to guest on his own remix, she said:

"It was a tradeoff. 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."

Brown violently assaulted then-girlfriend Rihanna in February 2009, but the two have rekindled at least a friendship since that point, with rumors of more.

He attended her birthday party last month, and there's been talk of the pair secretly hooking up despite his ongoing relationship with girlfriend Karrueche Tran.

I think they were apart long enough for Rihanna to know what she wants to do. She is a grown woman she knows what she wants and I say go and get it girl.

Agreed, birthday cake is far from an innocent song, but it is music. As far as her working with him again, that's her life and she has to live it not us. If you think she is sending the wrong message out to youth, then you clarify it with your own children, Rihanna and Chris are not responsible for setting the example for our youth, parents and significant adults in a child's life are responsible for that. I have a feeling that she will get back with Breezy, and even though I am a staunch believer in the fact that men (or women for that matter) should not abuse their partner, everyone deserves a second chance.

I guess ppl don't read the bible these days anymore because even God forgave the ppl that did him wrong, but any ways I'm so proud of Rihanna for moving on and not playing victum as so many ppl do. Behind her and Chris all the way because they are better ppl now because of wat happened. No one but God, Rihanna, and Chris know wat went on in that car. I don't blame u for jumping to defense Rihanna, I would too. That was 2009 this is 2012, MOVE ON PPL and stop dwelling on the past.
