R&B (Come On!) The Rihanna & Britney S&M collab...
I'm not going to lie, when I saw Rihanna tweet about doing a collab with Britney, I had high hopes for some kind of amazing new song. Can you imagine it, two of the most amazing forces in pop coming together to team up on some mind-blowing future-pop track....
The reality is an S&M remix, featuring Britney. Not quite what I hoped for, but accepting it as what we're going to be given, still pretty nice. At the end of the day, Britney and Rihanna in any format is Pretty Damn Awesome.
One thing I really like is Rihanna's take on it all. This whole thing was prompted by a fan-driven vote where Rihanna asked who people would like to see her collaborate with. Now, considering RiRi has over four-million followers, that's a hell of a lot of people voting. Remember she got the fans voting for the fourth single off her Loud album too. Pop, run democratically! I like it!
We'll have to wait a little longer to hear what this remix turns out like, but suffice to say, it'll add another chapter to the already significant story of S&M (what with the whole radio edit butchering censorship affair). As for Rihanna, she certainly sounds excited, tweeting about the collab: 'Its BRITNEY BITCH!!!! One of the biggest worldwide popstars! U gangsta #EPIC.'
We're loving the use of the '#EPIC' hashtag!
