Rihanna called into KIIS FM's On Air With Ryan Seacrest Thursday morning and the superstar opened up about why she decided to ask ex Chris Brown to collaborate with her on the controversial song, "Birthday Cake." Bottom line? It was just a business.

“Just as a musician, despite everything else, [Chris] was going to be the person," explained RiRi. "You know I thought about rappers, and I’ve done that so many times, and the hottest R&B artist out right now is Chris Brown."

She continued:

"So I wanted him on the track, and then in turn he was like ‘Why don’t you do the remix to my track?’ and it was a trade off. We did two records. One for my fans. One for his fans, and that way our fans can come together. There shouldn’t be a divide. You know? It’s music, and it’s innocent."
However, it doesn't appear to be just business between Rihanna and Chris. It's reported the two have been hooking up for a while. If Chris' girlfriend's Twitter and Facebook is any indicator, it appears she is not a fan of Rihanna and the two definitely are feuding over Brown.

Do you think Chris and Rihanna will ever officially get back together, and do you agree with RiRi's decision to reconcile? Sound off in the comments.

    You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be actually one thing that I think I'd never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very large for me. I am taking a look forward on your subsequent post, I'll attempt to get the grasp of it!

    people chill, Chris Brown has a girlfriend. They're just collabing together ! it's just music okay. It's not like they actually wrote a song together saying that they fell back in love with one another and willing to give love another shot. they jsut remixed each other's songs. Until they actually announce they're dating again, just relax bro. YOLO.

  • mekameek

    first off dont know chris or rihanna to pass any judgements about if they do or dont get back together, thats no ones business. Yes, chris is hot an always has been so that is nice to put him on the track. Its a shame that people pray for this song to be a down fall because you allowing your self to forgive and forget. but i guess this is the world we live in, people got a lot of opinions about BS. Im still gone buy what i wanna hear. Chris and Rhianna can sing, dance ride a white horse into the sun set!! i dont give a ish, its just too many people in the world that just dont mind they own damn business...smh

    I agree with everyone - Rhianna is very stupid. But her music is really shyt now anyway.

    Rhianna, it will say a lot about you as an artist if you start dating Chris Brown again. Your sales will drop and you will be pushed aside (pardon the pun)and another will take your place. Listen ,don't be stupid !!! We all love you and wish you the best, but many,and I mean MANY of us will turn our backs on you, quickly if you go back to the guy (Chris Brown) who BOXED YOUR HEAD IN. HE'S NOT the only guy you can make hit records with. Go back to him and you may get HIT WITH A RECORD !!! Please listen to us. Keep going straight up, Khianna. Don't look back, ok? Blessing to you.

  • clearperspective

    Well, it's obvious she wants to get back together with him. The world is watching this stupidity, sadly.

  • Mandy

    Did it because he is hot right now! SELL OUT! Hope u fall off worse than any other artist in history!

  • Mandy

    Hella stupid..ok so u sold out (collbararting with a piece of doo doo) to sell records? I thought most artists make music b/c they love it..so ur just admitting that ou do whatever just to make a buck? What it really is, is you want him back, stupid b*tch. How can two people who have restraining orders do anything together? Grrr youre such trash now Rhianna, cant believe how ,uch I liked you, jow youre just trash. Selling out for money.. The opposite of a true artist..thanks for showing your colors
