Get ready for the collaboration that will indeed “shock the world”. After weeks of rumors surrounding Chris Brown’s alleged involvement on Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake” remix, we can confirm that Breezy is indeed on the track — because we just heard it. (And just in time for Rihanna’s 24th birthday, too.) Both RiRi and Brown tweeted out links to their new song, and though they were almost immediately taken down, we’ve got the audio below.
Though Brown appears on this leaked version of the song, it’s possible that the track (which now clocks in at 3:40, nearly triple the length of the cut on Talk That Talk) may never see single status, as Roc Nation is reportedly getting cold feet about releasing the song due to all the controversy.
Rihanna feat. Chris Brown – “Birthday Cake” (Remix)
Chris spends most of his verse repeating most of Rihanna’s lyrics, though he opens with: “Girl, I wanna fuck you right now / Been a long time, I been missing your body.” Yes, he’s referring to the same body that he violently assaulted three years ago.
Chris and Rihanna also collaborated on a remix to Brown’s single “Turn Up The Music” (listen to it here). No word on whether that version will be released as an official single or download, either.
