trying to wrap our heads around the news that Chris Brown would lend his voice to Rihanna's "Birthday Cake" remix, but the singers have managed to blow our minds a little bit more.
On Monday the former couple (who are rumored to be seeing each other in secret) threw us for a loop when they both released remixes featuring each others vocals.
We knew that Brown was the "shocking" addition to "Birthday Cake" that producers promised, but we were more than surprised to hear Rihanna singing on Brown's remix for "Turn Up The Music."
The songs dropped simultaneously and couldn't have been released at a more opportune time. Brown has been a hot topic in the media this past week after he shot back at critics like country singer Miranda Lambert, who were upset to see him honored and performing at last week's Grammy Awards. Lambert, and other celebrities, spoke out against the music industry officially welcoming Brown back into its good graces for the first time since he brutally assaulted Rihanna in 2009.
Though "RIP Chris Brown" started trending on Twitter after the 22-year-old singer wrote that winning a Grammy was the "ultimate F**k OFF," his career is somehow still alive.
Although many aren't ready to forgive Brown, the remixes are proof that Rihanna certainly has. The 24-year-old singer seems to have extended an olive branch to Brown and perhaps her heart as well. Hearing Rihanna sing on Brown's song the words, "I love you baby," and Chris singing on "Birthday Cake": "Girl I wanna f**k you right now. Been a long time, I've been missing your body," only further fuels rumors the two have being seeing each other in secret.
