Less than 24 hours ago Rihanna released her much-anticipated single, “Birthday Cake” featuring her abusive boyfriend, Chris Brown, on the track.
Rihanna’s record label, Def Jam, and her management at Roc Nation, are reportedly upset that Rihanna released the track without their blessings. But Rihanna fought for Brown’s vocals to remain on the track, despite the controversy surrounding his feature. And in the end, she won.
A source close to Rihanna’s camp says RiRi is a “new woman” now that the world knows she is in love with Brown again. “You’ll be seeing a different side of her,” said a source who begged for anonymity.
“[Rihanna] wants to show Chris — and the world — that she’s changed,” said my source. “No more public intoxication, no more acting out, just good music,” she added.
