‘Birthday Cake’ Producer Reveals: Chris Brown Collaboration was Rihanna’s Idea (VIDEO)

Expert to Rihanna: Why?
Music Expert questions duet with Chris.
When Rihanni’s “Birthday Cake”–featuring Chris Brown–dropped earlier this week, music fans swamped Twitter and Facebook to express their ill feelings.

The Dream–the producer behind the track–opened up on MTV’s RapFix on Wednesday about how the controversial collaboration came about. He reveals that it wasn’t his idea to team up with Breezy. In fact, it was RiRi’s idea! 

“At the end of the day, she’s my friend, so whatever she wants to do is whatever she wants to do,” he explained.

That certainly changes things, doesn’t it? Let us know in the comments what you think about this new development!

It’s clear that Rihanna has forgiven Chris for his wrongdoings, and The Dream advises that her fans should “fall in line” and do the same. He continues:

”I think he understands what happened. I don’t think he’s … brushing it off like it’s nothing. Most of the time, the things that I see him do is out of defense … because the defense comes from, ‘I know it wasn’t cool, and I understand that.’”

The Dream added, “He’s kid, and she was a kid when this happened.”

Recently, the “We Found Love” singer was spotted partying it up at Mahiki Nightclub after the 2012 Brit Awards. Check out her bright yellow dress in the gallery below:
