The story of Rihanna and Chris Brown was a tragic example of domestic abuse, one that left many questioning why Brown continued garnering performances from high-profile platforms like the Grammys. After he pleaded guilty to felony assault on Rihanna in 2009, it went without saying that their relationship was effectively terminated forever.
Then Monday happened. Both artists released remixes versions of songs featuring one another, as Rihanna posted on her Twitter a remixed version of Brown’s “Turn Up The Music.”
On YouTube, a remixed version of Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake” emerged, featuring the vocals of Brown. The collaborations have left raising talk of a new romantic relationship, although this cannot be confirmed.
Hear the music for yourself. What do you think, did Brown and Rihanna punk us all?
