Given the back and forth Twitter love fest between Rihanna and Britney Spears yesterday, we knew their collaborative remix of Ri Ri’s current hit “S&M” was on the way. So break out the chains and whips, because it’s now here! Listen below.
Britney’s husky growl comes into play on this mix of Rihanna’s current single a bit more than usual. She also amps up the naughtiness of the dance-pop jam with lines like this: “If I’m bad, tie me down / Shut me up, gag and bound me / ‘Cause the pain is my pleasure, nothing comes better.”
It’s probably safe to assume Britney will never be labeled as a queen of soul, but after listening to her latest album Femme Fatale, it’s somewhat refreshing to hear her voice without all the studio wizardry and Auto Tune behind it.
What do you think—do Ri Ri and Brit sound like a match made in heaven on this sexed-up track, or does the “S&M” remix simply kill the mood?
