Chris Brown and Rihanna raised more than a few eyebrows this week with their remixes of her hit "Birthday Cake" and his "Turn Up the Music" this week.

Those two surprise collaborations have been followed by rumors that the singers may soon be collaborating in other ways, if you know what we mean.

We mean sexually.

If you're wondering who put the reunion in motion (musically, that is), The-Dream, who produced the "Birthday Cake" remix, would know: Rihanna.

"It was Rih's idea," he tells Billboard. "[Rihanna] is a friend of mine."

"It's like, 'You wanna do something? Then cool, let's do it.' I don't know how she got the logistics, how it happened; maybe she'll talk about it one day."

"I showed up at the studio, and it was like, 'All right, cool, let's finish this record,' which we probably should have finished the first time we did it."

According to The-Dream, he approached the project solely on its musical merits and ditched any of the controversial baggage that may come with it.

"For me, it's just music: two talented people doing two records together, that's what it was," he says. "It wasn't about an incident that happened."

He does acknowledge that the remixes' controversy, however ...

Rihanna and Chris Brown collaborated on a pair of remixes recently, a surprising move considering all that transpired between the former lovebirds.

The 2009 Grammys marked the beginning of a domestic violence drama that revealed a darker side to Chris' relationship at the time with Rihanna.

But nearly three years to the day he beat her senseless, Brown, 22, and Rihanna, 24, are again spending time together - musically and personally.

The former couple, whose friendly behavior is no secret on Twitter and in person, hit the studio last week to record parts on each other's songs.

The remix of Rihanna's single "Birthday Cake," featuring Chris Brown, lacks no shortage of sex appeal – not to mention some very NSFW lyrics.

"Girl, I wanna f--k you right now," sings Brown, whose return to the Grammys sparked controversy. "Been a long time/Been missing your body."

While Rih doesn't get as down and dirty with explicit lyrics on Brown's remix of "Turn up the Music," she suggests a rather revealing message.

"I love you, baby," she sings.

Rihanna clearly does not care about any public response to her being with Chris again, but singing with him and dating him are different things.

So far, there's no indication that they're back together, despite the rumors of them hooking up numerous times. But it makes you wonder.

What do you think of their remixes - and the fact that Rihanna and Chris Brown are collaborating with each other in general?

Looks like the rumors were true ... well, at least one of them was.

The alleged collaboration of Rihanna and Chris Brown on a remixed version of her single "Birthday Cake" is very much the real deal, as the former couple tweeted it out on Monday evening ... which was Rihanna's 24th birthday, fittingly.

Take a listen to their tag-team effort below:

"@rihanna goo.gl/ttRJR YIKES!!! Cake, cake, cake!" Brown tweeted with a link to Rihanna's "Birthday Cake" remix, which features his new, suggestive lyrics.

Shortly after Rihanna responded with, "#RihannaNavy Come and put ya name on it!!!!! RT @chrisbrown: @rihanna goo.gl/ttRJR YIKES!!! Cake, cake, cake!"

So ... there's that. She then linked to a second collaboration between the two, a remixed version of his "Turn Up the Music." Take a listen to that after the jump:

Chris Brown was apparently on hand at Rihanna's birthday party to see her receive a cake shaped like a topless likeness of herself riding a giant spliff.

Now they're rumored to be collaborating on a remix of her song "Birthday Cake."

Seriously. New reports have been flying that Chris Brown, of all people, is the mystery collaborator on a soon-to-drop remix of Rihanna's quick-hit song.

Surprising, and probably disappointing for some of her fans, but not as absurd a concept as it once seemed, given that they've grown close again.

"They can say whatever, Ima do whatever, No pain is forever," Rihanna tweeted Friday morning, quoting her hit song "Hard." "YUP! YOU KNOW THIS."

Cryptic. Or just catchy. That song was good.

Neither side is commenting about the rumored collaboration, but a full-length version of Rihanna's minute-long track (above) has long been in the works.

"It's gonna be crazy," producing team Da Internz told MTV News last week regarding the tune. "And the feature on there is gonna shock the world."

Could that mean what we think it means?

Deadmau5 and Rihanna were among the featured acts last night at the House of Blues in L.A., where a major fundraiser was held for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

The Canadian electro star headlined the wee-hours gig with ticket costs ranging from $250-1,000. Rihanna took the stage for only seven minutes, but made them count.

Rocking a mini-dress and blonde Farrah Fawcett 'do, she jumped, fist-pumped and maybe even sang her way through “Where Have You Been” and “We Found Love.”

Calvin Harris, who produced and co-wrote "We Found Love," and two backup vocalists accompanied Rih. Harris later took the stage for nearly an our at the shindig.

Confetti fell from the ceiling during the climax of the latter tune, and like that, Rihanna was gone, good deed done and no doubt some after-after-party to get to.

At the actual Grammys, Rihanna joined Coldplay on "Princess of China," while Deadmau5 and fellow electro-star David Guetta followed Chris Brown's performance.

Rihanna and Coldplay will perform together at next month's Grammy Awards.

The pop star, who is nominated for four Grammys including album of the year for Loud, tweeted the news to her followers Wednesday, calling it "BONKERS."

Coldplay is up for three awards. It's unclear what song the two will perform together, but they collaborated recently on Coldplay's "Princess of China" ...

While it's been reported that Rihanna and Chris Brown are hooking up again, that's far from confirmed ... but they are both expected at the Grammys.

Legendary Beatles frontman Paul McCartney was announced Thursday by The Recording Academy as another performer on the February 12 broadcast.

A physically and mentally exhausted Rihanna recently solicited words of wisdom from none other than Beyonce, the wife of her frequent collaborator Jay-Z.

B's advice was simple: Rest.

According to the UK's Daily Mail, Rihanna had a near "meltdown" on the European leg of her 101-date tour and turned to Beyonce to help her stay strong.

Beyonce, in turn, told the 23-year-old singer to consider taking a year off from show business altogether after the culmination of her massive tour to res.

Whether the headstrong star actually follows through on that is another story, but if RiRi's weekend tweet is any indication, Beyonce's words resonated.

"I'm so light-headed! WTF!!!!!" Rihanna wrote on Twitter after a performance in Dublin, which was nearly canceled due to her fragile, over-worked state.

So could 2012 be a light one for Rihanna pictures and songs? Although it's hard to imagine such a thing, Beyonce is always right. Don't cross the queen.
