‘Running Blind’: Rihanna Responds To Reported Britney Spears Duet

Published: Monday 24th Jun 2013 by David

One’s one of the greatest Pop acts to ever grace the genre, and the other…. a serial chart topper with more #1 singles that many a naysayer could fathom.

Now, after watching their first duet ‘S&M (Remix)’ peak at # 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Rihanna has responded to reports that has teamed up with Britney Spears for a second duet. This time….on a guitar driven ballad.

Details below…

Yesterday afternoon, users of Spears’ biggest fan site ‘Breathe Heavy were whipped into a frenzy when numerous reports across the web claimed that Rihanna had called on the icon to record a cut named, ‘Running Blind’. 

Reportedly recorded in aid of a new project by the ‘Let Me‘ singer, claims the alleged duet took an interesting turn when the pair’s respective fan bases unearthed a cut of the same name…originally recorded by their mutual collaborator Elijah Blake for his debut EP ‘Bijoux 22‘.

Quite interestingly, in digging for more details on the supposed sing-off, these fans swarmed Rihanna’s ‘BadGalRiri’ Instagram page for answers, when it emerged that Blake had been enlisted to pen material for Britney’s 8th studio album after crafting the song ‘No Love Allowed‘ for Ri’s ‘Unapologetic’.

Refusing to deny the report, she said the following when quizzed:

If accurate, the pair’s duet would mark a bold yet trend aware turn for both acts, following the success of Fenty’s Triple Platinum single ‘Stay‘, and after the critical acclaim afforded to Britney‘s 2004 smash hit ‘Everytime’.

        Gurrrrrrrl please! Your friend did NOT marry a black man. You’re spam and you’re a liar!!! Dirty liar! Check yourself!

  2. FentySoSnatched June 24, 2013

    Wow, why didn’t she deny it?

  3. AzealiaBankabale June 24, 2013

    Rihanna and Britney coming for AC wigs i see. Get that mature hit!

  4. ItsCheryl2bh June 24, 2013

    OMFG!!!! See how she wouldn’t say it wasn’t true. IT’S F****** TRUE!

  5. TheJustinlife June 24, 2013

    It probably for Katy Perry. They are always talking about how they wanted to do a duet.

    • CandyWarhol June 24, 2013

      Katy and Rihanna would sound like two cats howling at the moon on the song. Try again.

  6. RoyalNavi June 24, 2013

    I’m not even dealing with the Queen’s ambiguity right now. *Fans self with Maths For Dummies text book.

  7. Super Cisus June 24, 2013

    Two off key flops that can’t sing or dance!!!

    • steph June 24, 2013

      B****, you really be embarrassing yourself. Talking about artist knowing you stan for one of the most flopping artist of all time!

  8. steph June 24, 2013

    I’ve never liked Britney’s music but I Love Her for some reason. I hate Rihanna but love her music. WEIRD! Anyways, if this duet is true. 13th number 1 hit for Rihanna.

  9. BeyWhoUWanna June 24, 2013

    The funny thing is that I was playing this song last night. If it is true, it would be nice to hear them sing this because Rihanna DID slay with Stay.

  10. YOOSONDALOOSE June 24, 2013

    I am definitely here for a Rih + Katy Perry track!
    Not so much these two.

  11. MalikOnMyMind June 24, 2013

    I heard about this yesterday but didn’t believe it, but now Ri’s comment got me wondering. She didn’t deny it for a reason.

  12. PhuckYoFave June 24, 2013

    If this is true, Elijah’s about to get paid and Rihanna’s about to snatch even more of Bey’s wig.

    • CHILE June 24, 2013

      what wigs? can’t you see she’s already wearing them.. She is wearing the darker blonde one…she already wore the lighter blonde wig 😉 ..now she’ll be wearing the scalp after this cause she already snatched everytone of her wigs lol

  13. Draggin4MrsCarter June 24, 2013

    But neither of them can sing.

    • KING RIH June 24, 2013

      When yo fav gon outsell them tho?

      -sips tea-

      • DRAGGIN4MRSCARTER June 24, 2013

        She already has

        -sips Pepsi-

      • ^AKA^ June 24, 2013

        Not when Britney slayed her entire album discography with 1 album LOL.And it’s 14xPlatinum in The USA, so it outsold 4 Beyonce’s albums in the USA too. ^^ Sorry, but Britney is more commerically successful than Beyonce and that’s a fact.

      • NAVY101 June 24, 2013

        liesss *throws tea in face*

      • Jess June 24, 2013

        Yeah Britneys also more commercially successful then Rihanna lol. So why the f*** she asked “when will Beyonce outsell them” idk. Because Beyonce is a much more commercially viable act that Rihanna…just saying

  14. JARED (WHITE DUDE) June 24, 2013


    Oh well…

    Anyway, I want a “Bey & Rih.” duet!!!


    • BitchyBey June 24, 2013

      Rihanna isn’t good enough to scrape the gum for beneath Beyonce’s maid’s assistant’s heel.

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) June 24, 2013



      • Come Now June 24, 2013

        If that would ever happen Bey would have to talk through the track or they would REALLY HAVE TO ENHANCE RIHANNA VOICE! And it would have to be a slow jam because Rihanna can’t dance nor two step. And if it is a slow jam then B well damn it can’t happen Beyonce would have to drop all her skills so she wouldn’t make Rihanna look bad. So not going to happen.

    • rih rox June 24, 2013

      Beyonce will be the desperate one for a hit.

      She also does ends up copying those who she duets with as well.

      Shakira ring a bell?

      • MUSIC June 24, 2013

        Queen Bey doesn’t need hits Her tour did incredibly well without one

    • COMMON June 24, 2013


      That aint gone happen.

      Bey. NO.

      Rih. NO

      Aint gone happen…

    • LOU June 24, 2013

      That duet would be damn hilarious.

      Some stans would die!!!!!

    • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] June 24, 2013

      you know this won’t ever happen.

      do you need ME to refresh your memory on the subject ” beyonce can’t stand rihanna more than 2 secs to take pics of them together ? ” .

      *plays ring the alarm*

    • Jas June 24, 2013

      HELL NO! Lmfao Beyonce shouldn’t discredit herself like that.

  15. VisionOfMimi June 24, 2013

    If it wasn’t true, she would have said no.

  16. Beach babe June 24, 2013

    Ummm she said it was a #rumor wtf are you all talking about

    • VisionOfMimi June 24, 2013

      Yes dear, we can all read that’s what she said. We’re wondering why she wouldn’t say no if it wasn’t true. It’s either fact or fiction and she wouldn’t say which one it was.

  17. CSquadTurnsUp June 24, 2013

    There’s no way Elijah would give to this Riwhore without offering it to Ciara first so I don’t believe it.

    • OVODasher June 24, 2013

      He’ll give it to whoever makes him more money, so you know the answer to that question don’t you.

  18. Big d**** follow June 24, 2013

    If only they could sing…………….

  19. PoIddup June 24, 2013

    Why didn’t you mention they were recording it for Ri’s Rogue cologne. F***** haters.

  20. MUSIC June 24, 2013

    Perfect match. Neither can sing and both NEED autotune

  21. Lovebird June 24, 2013

    That’s so unfortunate, I was looking forward to this.

  22. POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] June 24, 2013

    The S&M Remix Was Horrible , Am i the Only One from the Navy who gonna admit it , Britney ruined it for me.

    • Adrian June 24, 2013

      Yup y’all trynna play nice but truthfully hearing Rihanna and Britney on the same track made me really appreciate Rih as an entertainer. She doesn’t have the best vocals, dance moves, personality, or writing abilities, but she knows how to deliver the material given to her (excluding her Australian accent on Diamonds..lol) Britney just didn’t take the track anywhere for me, but we all love her so we let it slide.

  23. Dev June 24, 2013

    What a shame. This is the only Elijah Blake song I like. It would be strange to re record a song that wasn’t a leak or demo and (according to TGJ) exceeded some kind of download record. I think they would ruin it personally

  24. Cici Slaaaaays June 24, 2013

    Another pointless post #WhoCares the h*** can’t sing

    • Navy Sailor June 24, 2013

      Lol the irony….

      • Cici Slaaaaays June 24, 2013


      • truth(icki’s B**** ASS STANS can EAT ME honey!! Yall b**** is a STANK P**** FLOP chile! (puckers lips like Drake)) June 24, 2013


  25. Ugh June 24, 2013

    No more duets for these 2 non singers please. S&M remix was a flaming mess but their fans pushed it to #1 just because. No more duets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  26. #DirtyLaundry June 24, 2013

    F*** these c** buckets Kelly will be on the Wendy Williams show today Talk a Good Game available in stores now its such an amazing album …I already bought 3 copies guna buy 4 more

    • Navy Sailor June 24, 2013

      No one cares about Kelly and her 60k sales.

  27. miao June 24, 2013

    Lady Gaga + Beyonce (talent) > Britney + Rihanna (autotune mess)

  28. DanYiel Teflon June 24, 2013


    • Navy Sailor June 24, 2013

      Lmao you’re on EVERY Rihanna post though. EVERY Rihanna post. Beat it, h**.

  29. Jewels June 24, 2013

    Well good for them if this is true… Just don’t touch Elijah’s song. They’ll ruin it.

    • Mother Monster June 24, 2013

      Well tell Elijah not to give it away then c***

  30. Mother Monster June 24, 2013

    Rihanna will murder Britney when it comes to singing ballad I see why they sent it to Britney shes easy for Rihanna outsing she’d never do a duet with bey or Gaga she’ll get destroyed

    Btw I hear Kelly Rowland is bout to do the dream numbers

    • Mother Monster June 24, 2013


    • Navy Sailor June 24, 2013

      Lmao Gaga is not a powerhouse with those basic vocals.

      • Mother Monster June 24, 2013

        Keep it cute mama i actually like Rihanna but she’s no ones amazing vocalist like gaga shes ok tho i love the way sings what now xoxo dont hate me!

      • Mother Monster June 24, 2013


      • Navy Sailor June 24, 2013

        And I have no beef with Gaga, but she’s no ones amazing vocalist either…..BY FAR.

      • Ciara is everything June 24, 2013

        Gaga will always be vocally better than Rihanna…. Rihanna will always be prettier & cooler than GAGA

        the truth deal

        None can see Ciara on stage.

  31. Navy Sailor June 24, 2013


  32. Lovebird June 24, 2013

    Jared, Beyonce cannot stand Rihanna, Beyonce is a b****, I thought you knew that by now.

    • Mother Monster June 24, 2013

      I think shes self centered no a b**** tho

      • Mother Monster June 24, 2013


    • Miss M June 24, 2013

      Do you know Beyonce personally? Because everyone whis actually met her says the opposite.

      And the Beyonce obsession continues.

    • Jas June 24, 2013

      Haha I’ve never heard any of Beyonce’s peers speaking badly of her…too bad I can’t say the same for Rihanna. Ya know, the same “b****” who punched her own stan in the face. I heard she has a bad attitude.

  33. Mark111 June 24, 2013

    If so, I hope Brit use her real voice, cause she use to sing slow song very well. My sisters use to play When Your Eyes Say It all the time.

  34. Mother Monster June 24, 2013

    Ugh im such a typo queen.

  35. XTINAALOVEE June 24, 2013

    Rihanna or Britney Whos the better singer?

    Be TRUTHFUL No being biased

    • Ciara is everything June 24, 2013

      Britney vocals slay Rihs…. sorry

    • Navy Sailor June 24, 2013

      Is this a serious question? Of course Rihanna is, but Britney’s voice isn’t bad as people claim. I’ve seen her sing “Everytime” live and she sounded exactly like the record. You don’t have to be a powerhouse and do 13431466 runs to be a good vocalist.

      • Ciara is everything June 24, 2013

        Was that Xtina shade b****?

    • #Hive June 24, 2013

      Rihoeanna duuuuuuh

    • Cici Slaaaaays June 24, 2013


      • SUPER TURNT UP June 24, 2013

        I see no lies

  36. Ciara is everything June 24, 2013

    Why is the current queen of pop working with this bottom of the barrel b**** shoulda collaborated with CIARA

    • Navy Sailor June 24, 2013

      If Rihanna is bottom of the barrel, exactly WHAT is Ciara? Not in the barrel at all? 😆

      • Ciara is everything June 24, 2013

        The Queen of dance.

  37. ShitGotReal June 24, 2013

    I’m here for a duet with this two queens.
    If that’s true I’ll see wigs being snatched.

  38. Ciara is everything June 24, 2013

    I would love to see QUEEN BRITNEY sound better & out sing the goat

  39. #Hive June 24, 2013

    Two vocaless flops singing a ballad oh lawd its gonna flop so hard can’t wait.

    • Navy Sailor June 24, 2013

      Flop like Stay, sis?! 😆

      • #Hive June 24, 2013

        Never heard of that s*** before sorry

      • Cici Slaaaaays June 24, 2013

        A flop like California king bed & Russian roulette babe

      • Navy Sailor June 24, 2013

        A flop like every Ciara single after Promise? I think not. 😆

      • ^AKA^ June 24, 2013

        Russian Roulette was a hit in Europe, it flopped in the USA. The same goes for California King Bed. So both songs did moderatelly, they didn’t flop.

      • Cici Slaaaaays June 24, 2013

        @aka B**** save the excuses im not here for them h**

      • ^AKA^ June 24, 2013

        Learn some manners if you want to talk to me. Go buy Body part, that’s what I call a flop. No certifications anywhere. LOL Best Thing I Never Had and Russian Roulette/California King Bed are far from flops if you compare it with that mess.

      • Navy Sailor June 24, 2013

        Not to mention that RR peaked at #35…the same as Body Party and sold 900k in the US. BP is STUCK at 200k 😆

      • Molly June 24, 2013

        Wasn’t Russian roulette a top 10 hit tho better than any Ciara single in the past 5 years

      • Molly June 24, 2013

        Ok just looked California King bed peaked at 37 & Russian Roulette at number 9

      • ^AKA^ June 24, 2013

        Russian Roulette peaked at #9 😛 The radio refused to play it. But it still did ok. It’s still remembered here. California King Bed peaked at #38 and did those numbers that you mentioned. 😀 And still went 2xPlatinum in Australia, Platinum in Italy and Sweden, Gold in New Zealand and Switzerland, Silver in the UK (303 000 copies sold – more than Body Part in The USA LMAO) and this person has nerve to call it a flop when his fav has yet to score a hit with same sales.

      • Navy Sailor June 24, 2013

        I can’t wait until Ciara flops in two weeks. Her stans will never show their faces around these parts again 😆

  40. #Hive June 24, 2013

    I hear Britney hasn’t sung live since 2003 🙁 lolololol…

  41. Charlie June 24, 2013

    Thank Elijah song sounds like something Frank Ocean would’ve done

  42. Molly June 24, 2013


  43. Savannah June 24, 2013

    Not here for Britney’s robotic vocals. At least rihanna can slay a ballad/midtempo.

  44. Rihanna # 1 Fan T June 24, 2013

    -_-, s & m remix really wasnt my fave, i really dont think they need to collaborate again, as much as i love britney and rihanna they just dont need to do songs together

  45. lolax June 24, 2013

    i hope they do a new song but no a remix

  46. Mwah June 24, 2013

    If the S&M remix was any indication of what it would be like then thank f*** for that

  47. Krissy June 24, 2013

    Good it would probably just be another vapid, generic, autotuned mess anyway.
