Given how much speculation goes on about the true nature of the Rih/Brown relationship (they broke up in 2009 after he assaulted her and have recently sparked reconciliation rumors), fans might want to know why they decided to work together on the throwback love jam. Her reason? “It’s nobody’s business,” she tells Complex magazine about the chatter surrounding them and the track.
When further prodded about the song in the cover story, she responds, “It’s a fun record that The-Dream wrote, and we loved the lyrics. You’re still asking me questions about it, so clearly you don’t know.”
Her label is taking a cue from her playbook on how to address the track. Roc Nation exec Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith notes that while the song wasn’t intended to be a Rihanna/Brown collaboration, in the end, it became one. The scrutiny and gossip surrounding them was not factored into the decision to make it so.
