As if the media hysteria surrounding Rihanna and Chris Brown couldn’t get anymore, it seems the couple (who recently reconciled) are feeding into it all by recording a duet to affirm their ‘love’ for each other. Check out the report via TMZ
TMZ now has all the details about the secret late-night recording sessions between Rihanna and Chris Brown — and they were jam-packed with emotion and serious drama, with some playful touching — seriously.
The whole thing came together when they decided to reconcile shortly after the attack. Sources tell us music producer Polow Da Don convinced both Chris and Rihanna to get in the studio and record a love song stat, stressing that timing was important because the heightened emotions would translate powerfully into the music.
Both Rihanna and Chris agreed and snuck in a couple of “late night” sessions that we’re told were “very, very emotional … the feeling in the room was pure love.” Clearly, love hurts.
As for how they got along, they were “playfully touching each other.”
We’re told the song was originally written for Rihanna before the fight, but after the beat down the producer believed the track — which ironically focuses on overcoming difficult challenges as a couple — would be the perfect duet.
As much as their respective PR teams must think putting on a ‘united front’ will redeem Chris in the court of public opinion and ease the matter, I just don’t see that happening. I retract my statement on Rihanna coming out the winner in all of this. If the reported ‘media blitz’ the two plan on doing, which also includes a stop on Oprah, turns out to be true, I see many people being even more turned off – by them both. IMO the idealist of scenarios would be for them to sit down…fall back…lay low – at least for now. The media have kinda gone overboard with it all and many a folk are sick of seeing the issue pimped.
