The once-flames shared their tracks via Twitter and quickly became a US trending topic. Rihanna tweeted about the bouncy “Turn Up The Music”, “@chrisbrown Turn up the music remix #RihannaNavy #Teambreezyenjoy!!! vimeo.com/mechanicaldumm…” which Chris ReTweeted. The joint hashtags of #RihannaNavy and #TeamBreezy seems especially significant, bringing all of their fans together.
News of this new remix for “Turn Up The Music” is a bit of a surprise as there has been much prior speculation as to whether the former paramours would work together on the “Birthday Cake Remix”. The furor began last week, when the production duo Da Internz told MTV News that their upcoming remix of Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake” would feature a super-secret cameo that would “shock the world.”
Nearly three years after Chris assaulted Rihanna, rumors have abounded that the controversial couple was making more than just sweet music together. Many sources have cited that despite Chris’ longtime relationship with girlfriend Karrueche, he and Rihanna had been secretly seeing each other. “Rihanna loves to live dangerously,” said one source “And talking to and hooking up with Chris is all part of that.” Chris shared this sentiment today on Twitter which seems to speak to the importance of the union, “The pub and excitement of this industry /society is only a surface! Really want us as a human race to unite! Bigger than music!”
