Grammy-winning singers Rihanna and Chris Brown have finally reunited, three years after their publicized domestic dispute, on two new remix records.
The former couple decided to remix each other's new records and unleash the tracks Monday (February 20) evening.
Chris Brown and Rihanna are back together, musically speaking. Two songs featuring the singers hit the Internet on Monday. Brown sings on the remix of Rihanna's sexually charged song "Birthday Cake," and she's on the remix of his upbeat tune "Turn Up the Music." Brown tweeted a link to the new version of "Turn Up the Music" on Monday, and Rihanna later retweeted it. She also tweeted about the remix for "Birthday Cake." (Washington Post)
RiRi and Breezy previously linked up, musically, roughly five years ago.
Rihanna, whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, told Esquire magazine in its October 2010 issue that she no longer resented Brown and that she enjoys his music. The two singers first collaborated musically in 2007 on the remix to her monster hit Umbrella. Brown also tweeted "HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBYN" to Rihanna, who turned 24 on Monday. A representative for Rihanna said she had no comment. An e-mail seeking comment from Brown's representatives went unreturned Monday. (USA Today)
A few days ago, reports of RiRi and Brown reuniting on a remix to "Birthday Cake" hit the Internet.
It's one of the most-talked about songs on Rihanna's Talk That Talk, and it's barely a minute long. Now, "Birthday Cake" -- 78 titillating seconds of school bells, handclaps and engines gunning -- is set to get a full-length reboot. But according to co-producers Da Internz, the featured guest on the remix will be more than just icing. "We got the Rihanna 'Birthday Cake' coming out in a week," a bespectacled Kosine told MTV News on the red carpet of the Pepsi-sponsored ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Brunch, held over the Grammy weekend. "It's gonna be crazy," his production partner, Tuo, said shaking his head. And the feature on there is gonna shock the world," Kosine chimed. (MTV)
Last week, reports emerged online claiming the exes hooked up for a birthday celebration.
Chris Brown was so paranoid about keeping his attendance at Rihanna's birthday party a big fat secret -- he actually tried to FORCE partygoers to sign confidentiality agreements ... TMZ has learned. Sources tell us, Chris refused to enter the private party Monday night at the famous Hearst Mansion in Beverly Hills until everyone signed an NDA -- sending his henchmen in beforehand to gather every partygoer's signature. We're told although they didn't get EVERYONE to sign -- Chris eventually walked in ... and spent a huge chunk of the night nuzzling up against Rihanna. According to sources, the two got real intimate -- sitting next to each other, talking, and holding hands ... all perfectly legal ever since the restraining order was lifted. Chris' rep tells TMZ, confidentiality agreements were distributed only to workers at the party and anyone who was caught videotaping/snapping a pic of CB. (TMZ)
