Rihanna has a perfectly good explanation for why she decided to reach out and do song collaborations with Chris Brown.. Her actions were perfectly innocent she tells Ryan Seacrest.
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. You know I thought about rappers, and I’ve 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 ‘Why don’t you do the remix to my track?’ 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 shouldn’t be a divide. You know? It’s music, and it’s innocent.
Ri-Ri also spoke about her upcoming clothing line with Armani. My girl loves her some Birthday Cake.. We went out over the weekend and all she kept saying is “I wish the DJ would play BIrthday Cake”. It’s the only song she got up and danced to the entire night.. So Ri-Ri and Breezy are making someone happy.. I on the other hand sat down when the song came on. But that’s not to say that I wasn’t singing CAKE, CAKE, CAKE, CAKE, CAKE!
