Jay-Z Reportedly Wanted Chris Brown, Rihanna Duet To Happen

Jay-Z Reportedly Wanted Chris Brown, Rihanna Duet To Happen
Entertainment

Believe it or not… Jay-Z reportedly played a significant role in bringing Chris Brown and Rihanna back together. If you’re familiar with Rihanna’s record “Nobody’s Business,”– the infamous single that sees her and Chris Brown professing their love for one another– you’d be surprised to learn it was Hov himself who thought the duet was a good idea!

Rihanna is on the cover of Complex’s February/March issue, and spends much of the interview expressing how little she cares about what people think of her.

Here’s a quote from the piece:

Apparently, her record label and management team had no second thoughts about her making a record with Brown—especially after the success of their “Birthday Cake” remix. [Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith, a co-founder of Roc Nation] is surprised even to be asked about the collab.

“We don’t focus on the media, so it was never a question,” he says. “It’s all about the music. Everything else doesn’t even play a part in the studio.” He insists that the record wasn’t made with Brown in mind.

“The-Dream didn’t write it for them as a duet. Jay-Z and I were in the car together listening to the song, and we thought it would be a great duet. It sounds dope. It feels good. That’s how Chris ended up on the song.”

Jay-Z  turned the heat up on Brown after the singer brutally assaulted Rihanna in 2009, warning him that serious consequences would be faced if he ever harmed her again.

Chris Brown denied rumors that Jay-Z threatened his career after he and Rihanna attended one of the legendary rapper’s sold-out shows at New York’s Barclays Center.

“Nobody’s Business” has been praised as one of the premier tracks on “Unapologetic,” Rihanna’s most recent album. The song has an old-school vibe and samples the late great Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel.”
