Rihanna set the record straight on why she teamed up with Ex Chris Brown. with Ryan Seacrest this morning about her decision to record again with Chris Brown. RiRi told the host she enlisted her ex for her ‘Birthday Cake‘ remix simply because he’s “the hottest R&B artist out right now.”

While some people are upset that Rihanna would work with the man who once abused her, she insists he was the best fit for her remix, and she was the one who asked him to collaborate.

“I reached out to him about doing ‘Birthday Cake’ because that’s the only person that really – it made sense to do the record, just as a musician. Despite everything else, that was going to be the person. I thought about rappers, and I’ve done that so many times, and the hottest R&B artist out right now is Chris Brown. 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. It’s music, and it’s innocent.”

Do you think Rihanna made a smart decision having Chris Brown collaborate on their music?
